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.

Nicole has received an Oscar nomination for Rabbit Hole!
Annette Benning – Black Swan
Nicole Kidman – Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence – Winter’s Bone
Natalie Portman – Black Swan
Michelle Williams – Blue Valentine
February 27th is the big day!
This is Nicole’s 3rd Oscar Nomination. Nicole is the only previous winner in this category; 4 of the 5 nominees have been nominated before, with Jennifer Lawrence being the only newbie. Nicole of course won back in 2003 for her performance as Virginia Woolf in The Hours.
This is the only nomination for Rabbit Hole – sadly nothing for David Lindsay Abaire for Adapted Screenplay. You can see the full list of nominations here.
CONGRATULATIONS on this fantastic achievement Nic! We’re extremely happy for you and know how much you deserve it.
Feel free to leave your congratulations for Nicole by posting a comment here.
EDIT: Nicole’s reaction to her nomination (thanks ‘eegah’ for commenting with the link):
“What an extraordinary journey this film has taken me on! Rabbit Hole has been a labor of love and I’m so thankful to John Cameron Mitchell, David Lindsay-Abaire and the brilliant cast. This nomination reflects all of the heart and soul that these people have put into it and I can’t thank them enough.”
It was mentioned in one of the articles from the BAFTA LA Tea Party that Newsweek had done an Oscar’s roundtable which included Nicole, and now the feature has been released online! I don’t have time to make a detailed post about it or add the photos to our Gallery, but you can view the articles, quotes, videos and fantastic photos at the Newsweek site:
I have to say I’m very excited to see her next to James Franco and that Michelle Williams is in there with Nic too! It’s a great group of actors. Browse through the pages in the link above, and check back here tomorrow/in the next few days for screencaps etc.
And remember, tomorrow is the day the Oscar nominations are announced, so keep your fingers crossed for Nicole, and send out lots of positive thoughts!!! I’ll be bringing you coverage as it happens here, and we’ll also have a livestream for you to watch it.
Keith Urban is ready for some football! The country superstar, who welcomed his second child last month, is set to perform at a Super Bowl XLV celebration in advance of the big game. The party, which will air on FOX, will also include performances by Maroon 5, as well as special red carpet interviews.
The Super Bowl gig is perfect for the Aussie, who admits to being an avid fan of the sport, thanks to his movie star wife, Nicole Kidman. “She’s a passionate, giant supporter,” Keith explains. “She’s a big NFL fan, and she sort of turned me on to it. Since I’m from Australia, it was all sort of new to me.” In fact, his affinity for football now runs so deep, he even filmed a special documentary last year about the sport, ‘Keith Urban: Half-time in Real Time,’ that he taped while in Dallas to perform at half-time during a game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New Orleans Saints.
Nicole Kidman is in the midst of award seasons but told OnTheRedCarpet.com at a recent tea party to celebrate the upcoming BAFTA awards that she still remembers her first award show fondly.
“I suppose I remember going to the Academy Awards with Tom [Cruise] when I was about 23 or something and that was like, completely overwhelming, but fun,” Kidman said. “It’s quick and fast and furious for a little while and then I go back to Tennessee and relax. I don’t stay up that late.”
Nicole and Keith’s Oprah Australian special episode aired in the US on Friday, and we now have screencaps and vids for you! A very big thank you goes to my ever-wonderful friend Brianne for making us a clip (which will be uploaded soon), and some fantastic HD screencaps! So, 200+ HD caps are now in the Gallery for you, and read on further down this post for videos. Nicole and Keith’s interview was very short, and they later returned for the grand finale sing-a-long. The interview was nice, they talked about their Aussie life, and Nicole and Oprah’s mutual love for Scrabble, which was pretty funny!
You can read more about Oprah’s other Aussie shows here.
Enjoy the screencaps
EDIT: A downloadable video of the parts featuring Nic has now been uploaded to the site. Thanks to Brianne for it!
Nicole has been featured in a number of magazines recently, and I would love to provide scans of them all for you! Unfortunately, being in the UK I’m not able to get them straight away, if at all. Therefore I am asking for your help! If you are able to scan one of these magazines that feature our Nicole, then please get in touch! You will of course be credited for your contribution, and I think all visitors would be very grateful for your help too.
I’m looking for these magazines:
- W – February 2011
- USA Weekend – January 7th-9th 2011
- People – January 24th 2011
- Australian Women’s Weekly – February 2011
And of course, if you have seen Nicole in any other magazines and would like to share scans from that then we’d love that. Basically, anything we don’t already have on the site is appreciated
As alluded to in this post, Nicole is on the cover of the current issue of Australian Women’s Weekly! They’ve used photos from last years photoshoot for Ladies Home Journal, but it is a new interview. You can see the cover to your left, with thanks to both Maria & Marica for sending me it in HQ. Further down this post is an article from the AWW website about the feature.
If anyone can provide Nicole’s Magic with scans from this issue then please drop me a line, all visitors would be very grateful to see them!
According to Janet Charlton’s Hollywood blog, the couple had not planned on going public with the story so soon – and was perhaps hoping to sell the scoop to a celebrity magazine when they were ready to break the news. But at CAA’s Golden Globes after-party on Sunday night, Kidman’s agent was overheard by a reporter congratulating the actress, making the status of Kidman’s uterus a hot topic on the Australian morning show Sunrise, reports Charlton. When TMZ contacted the couple to enquire if Kidman was pregnant, they confirmed the surrogacy news
