Movie Of The Month
As part of a bi-monthly feature here at Nicole's Magic, each month we will be taking a look back at one of Nicole's films or acting projects. Nicole has an immense body of work behind her, and there's no better way to be reminded of her talent and how much we love her than immersing ourselves and taking an in depth look at those works.
"Mrs Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself..."
While this main site is now only focussing on Nicole's career up to 2006, you can still keep up-to-date with her current activities on our forum.

This update comes thanks to one of our lovely visitors, Gabriele. She has sent us some fantastic new stills and set photos from Rabbit Hole, as well as the Italian poster for the film. Gabriele also pointed me in the direction of the official Italian site for Rabbit Hole, which you can find at videa-cde.it/rabbithole. Thanks Gabriele!
As well as that, I’ve added the US DVD & Blu-ray artwork for Rabbit Hole.
Finally, Nic flew into New York City earlier today, so I think it’s safe to say she will be attending the premiere of Just Go With It in the city tonight! Can’t wait to see what she wears AND hopefully hear her talk about the film. I’ll be posting coverage here tomorrow, all being well.
Continuing the Oscar season glory, we now have full coverage from yesterday’s Oscar Nominees Luncheon! Nicole looked gorgeous in a papaya silk chiffon with black fingerprint motif and a bow blouse halter dress by Yves Saint Laurent, with a Prada clutch. This is my favourite look of hers so far this awards season – the dress is classy and appropriate, and finally, she wears some colour!
As posted about yesterday while the event was streaming live, there was a short press conference in which all the acting nominees had a few minutes to answer questions from the press. After that, all nominees (150 out of 190 attended) posed for a group photo, and then were awarded their nominee certificates. Isn’t it wonderful to see Nicole back in the mix? She looks pretty happy to be there, and I think it must be a really fun event full of celebration.
Further down this post are articles and a few videos from the event, and in the Gallery you will find 60+ gorgeous HQs!
The livestream is being repeated on the link I posted yesterday (look a few posts back) so if you missed it yesterday you can watch it again. Nicole’s segment was very cute and she was very eloquent, gracious and surprisingly confident, so definitely worth a watch! I managed to record her segment, and although it’s very poor quality, it’s better than nothing so I will upload that once the livestream repeat is taken off. Though having said that, if anyone finds a full version of her press conference, or can record it properly from the livestream then please let me know!
The regular DVD will most likely be released on this date too.
Lionsgate, in an early alert to retailers, has announced plans to bring the Academy Award (“Oscar”) nominated 2010 John Cameron Mitchell directed drama “Rabbit Hole” starring Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, and Dianne Wiest to Blu-ray Disc on April 19th. Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed but stay tuned and we’ll try our best to keep you updated. The title is already available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon with a $27.99 price tag.
EDITED on February 11th: Extras are listed as
* Audio commentary with director, writer and director of photography
* Deleted scenes
Nic has just appeared on stage at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon, where she was briefly quizzed by the media in the room. She was very happy and talkative, and it was a great press conference! Here’s what she talked about:
- Jackie Weaver (who she grew up watching!), and finding international fame in the “second half” of life. Often people are told that if they don’t make it by 35, they’re not going to make it at all, but that’s changing.
- The new group of filmmakers from Australia
- How each nomination this season has been “probably each time I was included in the categories, I’ve been more excited than any other time before”. How it’s unbeliveable to her that she’s been nominated again after all these years, and that because it’s this film, it’s now a very “sweet time”.
- They didn’t expect the enormous support in Toronto. It’s been the “loveliest time”, and she’s “very very thankful”.
- The new addition to her family is in her crib sleeping! Sunday Rose was sent of to a farmer’s market with a girlfriend of hers this morning. “That’s of no interest to anybody else here I wouldn’t think!” she joked.
- Sunday Rose has pretty strong opinions, she chooses what she calls” pretty dresses”, and she has a very strong voice in terms of what Nicole will be wearing at the Oscars. She could be wearing a tutu, Nicole joked!
Here’s a screencap of Nic on stage, and stay tuned for full coverage – videos, quotes, photos etc. – tomorrow! Or if you can’t wait that long, check out our forum in the meantime.
As an Academy Award nominee this year for Rabbit Hole, Nic will be attending the Oscar Nominees Luncheon in Beverley Hills today! You can watch a livestream of the event below. We’ll have pictures and coverage later today/tomorrow.
Nicole Kidman wept when she earned her third Oscar nomination last month, for Rabbit Hole – and then had to explain to her 2-year-old daughter that they were tears of joy.
“Poor Sunday,” Kidman told PEOPLE at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this weekend. “They said my name, and Keith [Urban] was like ‘Yeah!’ and jumping around the kitchen. And Sunday is like, ‘What’s happening? Why are you crying?’ Because I was crying.”
“She said, ‘Why are we sad?’ I said, ‘No. We’re not sad, Sunday. We’re happy.’ So, that would be my memory of this nomination – my daughter and my husband jumping around the kitchen.”
Accepting the Cinema Vanguard Award at the Santa Barbara festival, Kidman, 43 – who won an Oscar for The Hours and was nominated for Moulin Rouge – told PEOPLE that she is thrilled to be finally be in a place of personal and professional fulfillment.
“I think I’m just at a place in my life where I’m in my 40s and [realize] I’ve been very fortunate,” she said. “I’m very grateful, because I’ve certainly lived through my fair share of pain and loss. So now, to be where I’m waking up in the morning going, ‘Thank you, God,’ is a very beautiful place to be.”
The 83rd annual Academy Awards will air live Sunday, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on ABC from Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre.
Just Go With It hits cinemas this coming Friday, and I’ve just come across a few reviews that I thought I’d share. Don’t hesitate to post a comment or email me if you come across any others.
A TV Spot for the film was aired during last night’s US Superbowl event, and you can watch that video further down this post too.
There is a premiere being held for the film in New York tomorrow, no word on whether Nic will make the trip yet though.
Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman is given licence to go completely OTT as Katherine’s smarmy college pal Devlin. She happens to be staying at the same resort with her high-flying husband (Dave Matthews), tempting Katherine to spin her own yarn of wedded bliss. With so many lies to keep track of, the comedic possibilities should be endless, but instead there are more pratfalls and pooh jokes. A Hawaiian dance-off between Kidman and Aniston should break the monotony, but instead becomes a showcase for more bodily dysfunction. By this stage, director Dennis Dugan has lost the rhythm as well, dragging the story out with unremarkable twists. You may root for Sandler and Aniston to just ‘go with it’, but only so you can be done with it.
The surprising casting choice is Nicole Kidman, however, rediscovering her touch for comedy. At first, her character lends little to the film, but come a terrific set piece near the end of the movie, it had me wishing she’d find a darker comedy role, akin to her magnificent turn in Gus Van Sant’s To Die For, all those years ago.
