This appears to be the only nomination for Rabbit Hole at the Golden Globes this year. The awards are held on Sunday January 16th 2011.
EDIT:MTV.com have a reaction from Nicole on her nomination:
Nicole Kidman, a Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture (Drama) nominee for her work in “Rabbit Hole,” said in a statement, “It took more than four years to get our little movie off the ground, and to be recognized for my work in a film that means so much to me is truly such an honor. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press [Association] for your continued support.”
Ten years ago, Nicole Kidman was enduring a shocking divorce from actor Tom Cruise, amid a swirl of rumors she was struggling with infertility issues after she revealed that she had she suffered a miscarriage early in the marriage. So it’s understandable that the now 43-year-old actress still can’t believe how picture perfect her life has turned out with second husband Keith Urban and their 2-year-old daughter, Sunday Rose.
“I’m in a state of absolute wonder, having all this in my life, I never thought this was going to be me in my forties. A new baby. I just love the energy of young children in the house, it is just lovely. It puts me in a state of humility and compassion,” Kidman told Pop Tarts while promoting her new drama “Rabbit Hole,” which she both starred in and produced. “I just want to have my husband, my baby and Bella and Conner. For me, they’re my favorite people in the world.”
In the film, Kidman plays the role of Becca Corbett, a woman devastated by the tragic loss of her four-year-old son and battling to keep her marriage to Howie (Aaron Eckhart) afloat. And in real life , it’s no surprise she and Urban are pretty protective of their little one.
More award nominations for Nicole today, this time from the Critics Choice and St. Louis Film Critics Association.

Top 10 Movies 6. Rabbit Hole
A couple, Becca (Nicole Kidman) and Howie (Aaron Eckhart), attempt to cope with the sudden death of their young child. Uh-huh: there have been so many manipulative movies on this subject that simply to hear the plot of Rabbit Hole could induce a case of mourning sickness. But the tone achieved by writer David Lindsay-Abaire (adapting his Pulitzer Prize–winning play) and director John Cameron Mitchell (who did the splendidly rambunctious indie films Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Shortbus) is fine and generous, an unbroken series of subtle, privileged moments. Kidman, in a career-best performance, and Eckhart lend pitch-perfect calibration to the couple’s shared and separate agonies. It’s as if previous treatments of the subject were a series of failed experiments, and Rabbit Hole is the Eureka! moment. This is how movies can bring a great, grave theme to indelible dramatic life.
Nicole will be a guest on Live With Regis & Kelly on Friday December 24th! Make sure you tune in if you can. We’ll hopefully have screencaps and a video sometime soon after (bearing in mind the day after is Christmas ).
