Another day, another two major award nominations for Nicole! The Golden Globe Award nominations were announced a couple of hours ago, and Nicole received a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress In A Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Hemingway and Gellhorn, and also – most surprisingly – for Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for The Paperboy! This is more extremely exciting news for Nicole, and us, and we send her a big congratulations!
The Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday January 13th, and will be televised live on NBC.
While Oscar voters may be slightly more conservative in their tastes – and Charlotte Bless is not conservative! – she has the two main precursor nominations now, so we will have to cross our fingers and wait and see until the morning of January 15th.

EDIT: Nicole’s reaction statement:
Nicole Kidman: “As an actor you look for roles that are rich, complicated and that stretch you, and this year I was blessed to find two. To have the chance to play them was a gift in itself, and to then be acknowledged this way is icing on the cake. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press!”
Her husband Keith Urban also received a nomination in the Best Original Song category for co-writing ‘For You’ with Monty Powell from the film Act Of Valour. His reaction statement included mention of Nicole’s nominations:
Keith Urban: “The most rewarding gift for me as a songwriter is knowing that the song has somehow made a connection. I’ve been fortunate and moved to hear first hand how it has impacted others’ lives. For that, and for this nomination, I’m so very grateful and honored. To wake up to this news, as well as to Nic’s two nominations, is absolutely beautiful. What a way to start the day!!!!!”
