I love the words she said about her mother!

The love for Nicole Kidman’s outstanding work in Big Little Lies keeps coming!

The actress was just named the Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie at the 2018 Golden Globes and, on a night when the entire industry is showing solidarity with the Time’s Up movement, she used her acceptance speech to not only thank the usual suspects, but celebrate the power of women overall.

Turning to her co-star and producing partner Reese Witherspoon, Nicole began. “We did this because of our friendship, our creative union and our support of each other. And I love you,” she said as her co-star watched, beaming. “Also, I want to say, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz, we sat at a table, pledged allegiance to each other and commitment to each other and this is ours to share.

She then got a bit more personal, turning her attention to her mother. “And my mama. My mama was an advocate for the women’s movement when I was growing up. And because of her, I’m standing here. My achievements are her achievements. Antonia Kidman, my sister, and I say thank you Janelle Kidman, for what you fought for so hard. This character that I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now, abuse. I do believe, and I hope we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them. let’s keep the conversation alive. let’s do it.”

And of course, she couldn’t wrap things up without an adorable message for her musician husband. “And Keith Urban when my cheek is against yours, everything melts away,” she said. “And that is love.” Aww!

Kidman beat out a stacked category that included her co-star Witherspoon, as well as Feud stars Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange, along with The Sinner’s Jessica Biel.

The Australian actress tells how she and her fellow stars are planning to stage a protest on the red carpet

If you were expecting a gushy love-in at this year’s Golden Globes , forget it.

Instead, you can look forward to a brazen feminist front where girl power will be loud, proud and undeniable.

Tonight, Nicole Kidman , Reese Witherspoon , 41, and Eva Longoria , 42, are set to stage a protest on the red carpet in a united show of womanhood.

I caught up with Nicole, 50, on Friday and she told me about the atmosphere in light of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal.

She says: “It’s so important now that we are all together and that we are helping each other and that we can make change happen.

“That we can make this place a safer world for all of us and actually redefine how we look at abuse of power and what abuse is.”

Speaking at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, she told how playing a domestic abuse victim in Big Little Lies – for which she is nominated for Best Actress – was liberating.

She says: “Playing Celeste was a particular look at that, at domestic abuse. There has been a huge unravelling this year. We are all in a position to illicit change and we can all do it together.”

Women from across the industry will wear black and march down the red carpet tomorrow.

Some of Hollywood’s leading ladies launched the Time’s Up initiative last week, a “legal defence fund” that aims to “provide subsidized legal support to those who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace”.

Nicole adds: “It’s about eradicating abuse for everybody right now and creating opportunities for women.

“I don’t know if it’s a march as much as solidarity. So many people are reaching out for help to be involved and raise money and for this place to be safer for all of us.

“The idea of women having each other’s backs is an important message.”

While talent agency CAA has axed its party – with all donations going to a domestic abuse agency – there is still much to be celebrated. Liberated women, take note and party like your life depended on it.

Nicole is one of the performers highlighted in W’s annual January issue for Best Performances of the Year.

Nicole Kidman has always been an adventurous presence onscreen, but 2017 was the year when her daring really spoke to fans both onscreen and off. It felt like every project she appeared in had a cult following, from the films The Beguiled, directed by Sofia Coppola, and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, and especially the zeitgeist-conquering HBO miniseries Big Little Lies. For the trauma she suffered poignantly on that show as the onscreen wife of Alexander Skarsgaard, the Australian actress won an Emmy. It also served as a platform for her newfound activism, with domestic violence as her cause célèbre. And she hasn’t stopped speaking up since, lending her powerful voice to the conversation about the sexual misconduct and systemic abuse of power by men in Hollywood. Here, in a new interview with W editor at large Lynn Hirschberg, Kidman recounts her brilliant year—and how her sensitive husband, Keith Urban, felt all of her onscreen pain.

So how did The Beguiled come to you?

Sofia [Coppola] came and saw a play I was doing in London, and then we went to dinner afterwards and she gave me the screenplay. She said, “I’ve written a script, I’d love you to read it.”

Had you seen the original [1971 film, starring Clint Eastwood]?

I hadn’t seen the original. She described it, and I’ve wanted to work with her. At one point we were sort of trying to make something else happen, and then that fell through. So it was just one of those things where it came together really quickly, and it was a delight to make. I mean, it really was.

I always describe Sofia as being so feminine and quiet, but incredibly powerful. She gets everything done without, really, raising her voice barely above a whisper.

Yeah, people do everything. She’s so quiet; she’s so elegant. But she’s very decisive and just very good at what she does—and everyone knows that, so they respect her.

And you’ve worked with women as directors pretty much from the very beginning. I mean, Jane Campion was—

The trailblazer.

Exactly.

Yeah, and she’s one of my best friends. She came and saw me when I was 14 doing, strangely enough, Sweet Bird of Youth on stage in drama school. I was playing Princess [Kosmonopolis]. I did not know what I was doing at that age. I had no idea what any of it meant. [Laughter.] Jane sort of saw me and she went, “I want her in my student film.” And we built a relationship. Then she brought me Portrait of a Lady. We built a friendship during all of that and have had a friendship ever since.

You’ve had this incredible year. I’m not even talking about TV right now, just movies. Did you set out to say, “You know, I’m just going to do everything that scares me”? Or was there a particular idea behind the films that you’ve done this year, which were really brave.

It was director-driven. I mean, I got to work with Jean-Marc Vallée, Jane Campion, Yorgos Lanthimos, and Sofia Coppola in one year. I was so fortunate, because when directors of that caliber choose you to be in their films or their television shows then, I mean, whatever happens it’s going to be an extraordinary experience and ultimately something will come of it that’s interesting or compelling or different. You know, you never know, but at least when you work with that caliber of director you’re safe.

But what’s so interesting about you—and you can’t say it, so I will—is that you’re unlike certain people who, when they get to a certain point in their career, they safeguard it. They get nervous about breaking out from what’s going to be expected from them.

Right.

They’re careful. They don’t do TV shows where they’re naked and beat up and lying on the floor.

But, honestly, is that because they don’t have the opportunity, though? I mean… I don’t see it as brave. That’s what’s interesting. People say, “Oh, you know, that you’re so bold and brave in your decisions.” And maybe I’m just insane. [Laughter.] But I see it as, um, I’m being given a chance. I literally still feel like I’m the kid at drama school hoping to get a role. That’s how I operate. I mean, that’s what I come from, and whether that’s to do with, I suppose at times, my own vulnerability and insecurity, I always feel like I’m so fortunate and lucky to have the job.

But I also was raised in a family that looks at things differently—a very liberal family, a family that discussed things—always politics and philosophy—and academic parents who loved reading. That’s how I was wired as a small child. I would always question and was fascinated by the psychology of human beings.
