EDITED on December 20th: Noomi Rapace won the award for Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama
Keith Urban’s wife, actress Nicole Kidman, has certainly influenced the songs her husband has written and chosen over the past few years, which have been featured on albums ‘Defying Gravity,’ and ‘Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy Thing.’ He says her influence is also felt on his new album, ‘Get Closer,’ but just not in the same way.
“Not directly in the way as with ‘Stupid Boy’ and ‘I’m In,’” Keith tells The Boot. If you remember, after hearing ‘I’m In,’ Nicole told her husband, “That’s a really sexy song. You should do that song.”
“They were both songs that she thought were really good,” Keith continues. “But at the same time, there are things that I’m thinking about and I ask her what she thinks about these songs, as well. She’s very present in the spirit of these songs when I come home with a little tape recording of us playing ‘Put You in a Song,’ or something, and I have my little cassette player and I crank it in the kitchen like I did that afternoon when I got home. I said, ‘I really like this one,’ and she was grooving to it and thought it was really good, too. If she’s grooving around, that’s a really good sign. [laughs]”
Keith co-wrote his current single, ‘Put You in a Song,’ with Jedd Hughes and Sarah Buxton, who was also a co-writer on his 2007 hit, ‘Stupid Boy.’

Yahoo Movies have posted another clip from Rabbit Hole entitled ‘Another Angel’ – I think we’ve seen at least parts of this before but it’s a fantastic clip…
Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban have proven themselves to be Australia’s celebrity power couple, while the company behind Walking With Dinosaurs has stomped its way to the top of BRW’s list of highest earning entertainers of 2010.
With earnings of $20 million, country singer Urban sustained his number five position, while actress Kidman dropped slightly from the ninth spot to number 10 after making $9.6 million this year.
But making their debut as the top of the list in big way were the production company Global Creatures.
An estimated 6.6 million people from across the globe have seen their Walking With Dinosaurs show, which earned $140 million and generated ticket sales worth $350 million in 2010.
The next highest earners of the year were veteran rockers AC/DC who made $131.4 million.
Kidman’s close friend Naomi Watts was the highest earning woman on the list, coming in at number seven with earnings of $11.9 million.
Children’s entertainers also did well with The Wiggles taking third spot with $33.5 million and Hi-5 coming in ninth with $9.7 million.
Hugh Jackman (number four, $21.5 million) and Cate Blanchett (number eight, $10.8 million) and promoter Paul Dainty (number six, $15 million) rounded out the top 10.
Nicole Kidman, celebrity matchmaker?
Indeed. The Oscar winner plays Aaron Eckhart’s grieving wife in the drama Rabbit Hole, out next month. And while talking about her movie with USA TODAY’s Donna Freydkin, she made a point to throw in a good word for her single co-star.
“He’ll make someone a great husband. Which is actually what Aaron is: a really decent guy with an enormous amount of love to give. So for all those women out there, he’s looking for a wife,” says Kidman. “He’s a really good husband.”
How does Eckhart feel about the endorsement? Bring it on, he says with a laugh.
“From your lips to God’s ears. I need a good woman!” he says.
Okay. A day after it was announced that today’s newly minted Indie Spirit nominee and probable Oscar nominee James Franco is co-hosting the Oscars, here’s the latest from the actor’s never boring career.
It turns out that Franco is very much in the mix to play opposite Nicole Kidman next fall on Broadway in “Sweet Bird of Youth.”
The role of course would be that of Chance Wayne in the Tennessee Williams classic was played on screen by Paul Newman. The last time it was on Broadway, Christopher Walken had the role. That was in 1975.
Nicole, obviously, is taking the Elizabeth Taylor role of Alexandra deLago. It’s her second Broadway play, and Franco’s debut if it all gets ironed out.
In this production, David Cromer is directing. The talks between Franco and producer Scott Rudin have been going on for a while, I am told. But the hitch has been whether the production can do rehearsals late in the day next fall to accommodate Franco’s school schedule. Apparently, Yale gives homework!
No confirmation yet, but it does seem like this is going to happen. Hot ticket? The hottest, I’d say. Kudos to Rudin, too. He’s also got two Oscar-buzzed movies this season, “The Social Network” and “True Grit.”
