Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are a red carpet package, but the adorable couple will be spending a very important night apart.

ET’s Cameron Mathison caught up with the couple on the red carpet at the SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, where they gushed about being together — and opened up about flying solo at the GRAMMYs and BAFTAs next moth — both events are being held ont he same night, Feb. 12.

“We couldn’t believe it. It’s an amazing thing to be honored in both our fields in the same night at the same time,” said Nicole, who is nominated for a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for Lion. “I would so love to be there grooving to his tunes, you know?”

Kidman is nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Lion at the BAFTAs, while Urban is nominated for two GRAMMYs this year: Best Country Album for Ripcord and Best Country Solo Performance for “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”

“Rarely does that happen where two evenings like that, that are both important to us, in the same night,” the country star added. “But we feel really grateful that we get to be honored in our fields, and we recognize that.”

“We just love being together,” Kidman gushed. “He’s my protector and my rock… [But] we’ll facetime or call. We like to see and hear each other. ”

The two will at least be together for Sunday’s SAG Awards, where Kidman was dressed to the nines in a sequined Gucci number with parrot embellishments on the shoulder.

Keith Urban did not try to hide his emotions after seeing his wife Nicole Kidman’s performance in Lion.

The handsome couple, both dressed in Gucci, arrived at the red carpet for the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, where Kidman is nominated for best supporting actress for the true story about an Indian boy named Saroo who is adopted by an Australian couple after becoming separated from his biological family.

“I knew we were onto a good thing when my sister and my husband saw the film and they both came out weeping and wanting to hug me,” Kidman told E! News’s Giuliana Rancic. “I thought that’s an amazing response to a film.”

Urban added that Lion is a “really, really beautiful film — and I always want to stress that so much of the crying is really more about the triumph of the film and the triumph of love. That’s really what it’s about.”

In the film, Kidman plays Sue Brierley, one half of Saroo’s adoptive parents. Speaking on the difficulties of playing a real person, Kidman said, “It’s a supporting role, so trying to find her essence and honor it — and have it be properly depicted onscreen in a small about of time — was probably the hardest part about it.

Earlier in the afternoon, Dev Patel, who plays the adult version of Saroo, spoke about working with Kidman. “I was really intimidated to begin with,” Patel told E! News on the red carpet of Kidman. “I was very nervous and then they kind of just invited me into a room and I didn’t even know that she was going to be there and she was just sitting there at the table with the director.”


And here is a video of Nicole talking about it on the SAG red carpet:

The New York Times spoke with Nicole at Paris Fashion Week about her nomination, about acting, and about talking with Isabelle Huppert.

PARIS — Less than five hours after she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in “Lion,” the actress Nicole Kidman was carefully making her way down the steps of the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, surrounded by a scrum of reporters, photographers and onlookers wielding their cellphones, to the front row of the Armani Privé fashion show. The nomination was the fourth of Ms. Kidman’s career (she won the best actress award in 2003 for her role as Virginia Woolf in “The Hours”), but she still sounded excited about being in the running.

“I’m so happy. Really, just delighted,” she said about the nomination for best supporting actress, where she is up against Viola Davis and Michelle Williams, among others.

“The strangest thing is that the older I get, the more excited I feel. It’s such an honor to be recognized for this film — a project which was such a heartfelt achievement for everyone involved — and a movie that is obviously so close to my heart,” Ms. Kidman added, perhaps referring to her adoption of two children with her former husband, Tom Cruise. The movie tells the story of a lost Indian boy who is adopted by an Australian couple before, as an adult, finding his biological mother.

As she made her way to her seat, clad in a long black dress with a bow in the middle, Ms. Kidman was greeted by the Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, who said, “Congratulations.”

“I’m so happy,” responded Ms. Kidman, adding “Harvey’s happy,” referring to Harvey Weinstein, one of the film’s producers. “That’s important.”

Minutes before the show was to begin, with ushers urging people to take their seats, Ms. Kidman praised the director Garth Davis and the Australian film crew, as well as the family whose life story inspired the film. “Importantly, I also want to thank the Brierley family for putting themselves in such a vulnerable place and sharing their story with the world,” she told me.

Ms. Kidman was not the only Oscar nominee at the show. Sitting two seats over, in a slim-fitting blue pantsuit, was the French actress Isabelle Huppert, who is in the running for best actress for her role in “Elle.” It is Ms. Huppert’s first nomination.

The two actresses posed for pictures, giving each other a congratulatory handshake, a show of support no doubt made easier by the fact that they are competing in separate categories.

“What a delight to be sitting so close to Isabelle,” Ms. Kidman said. “It’s wonderful. I just want to sit here and talk to her about acting.”

USA Today reported on Nicole’s response to her Academy award nomination.

There’s no place like Paris for good news.

Nicole Kidman was heading to the Armani fashion show in the City of Light when she found out news of her best supporting actress Oscar nomination for Lion.

“Is that not crazy?” asks Kidman, 49, who says she “was literally just with Isabelle Huppert,” who was nominated in the best actress category for Elle. “We were just going, ‘What an amazing moment.’ She’s been such an idol of mine for so many years so to celebrate with her is extraordinary.”

This isn’t Kidman’s first nomination. “My fourth!” she said. “I’m just amazed that…at this age, my career still is hanging in there.”

Kidman says she’s also “so happy” for her co-star Dev Patel, who scored a best supporting actor nod. Patel is the only Asian to be tapped for an acting nomination this year, but overall diversity is markedly up in the 2017 nominations, with seven non-white actors nominated in acting categories and four of the nine films nominated for best picture representing diverse stories.

“Embracing the diversity is what’s important in our world,” says Kidman. “I’m just so proud to be in a film that is that. (Lion) exemplifies that in a way because it’s an Australian family in an international adoption. Primarily, it’s a story about love and mothers, and the power of mothering and parenting. And how good love can give you so much in the world. And it takes a village.”

Dev Patel talks about playing cricket with Nicole and about working with her on-screen.

The Australian-set portions of the film were shot in Melbourne and Hobart, and Dev and his co-stars got to know one another by playing some friendly cricket before filming started.

So how are Nicole Kidman’s cricket skills?

“She’s… she’s a tryer,” laughed Dev after a pause.

But the London-raised star had more effusive praise for 49-year-old Nicole’s on-screen talents.

“For someone like me to get to share the screen with the Nicole Kidman… she’s so gracious and a national treasure here,” he said. “I felt very blessed.”
