Nicole Kidman Shines In Armani As She Wins Big At SAG Awards
NICOLE KIDMAN IN ARMANI AT SAG AWARDS
The Aussie actress won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie for her role in HBO’s Big Little Lies. For the occasion, Kidman wore a stunning floor-length, sleeved Armani gown. She paired the dress with Jimmy Choo heels and purse, an Omega watch and Harry Winston jewelry. Her husband Keith Urban also wore an Armani suit.
Despite being sick with the flu, Kidman made the trek out to the awards show in Los Angeles to collect her statue in person. During her speech, the actress earned a standing ovation for calling out ageism and sexism in Hollywood. “To receive this at this stage in my life is extraordinary, and at this time in the industry when these things are going on and for this role,” said the 50-year-old.

Kidman also thanked older actresses like Meryl Streep and Jessica Lange for paving the way for the next generation. “I want to thank you all for your trailblazing performances you’re given over your career and how wonderful it is that our careers today can go beyond 40 years old,” she said. “Twenty years ago, we were pretty washed up by this stage in our lives, so that’s not the case now. We’ve proven, and these actresses and so many more, are proving that we are potent and powerful and viable.
“I just beg that the industry stays behind us because our stories are finally being told,” Kidman continued. “It’s only the beginning and I’m so proud to be a part of a community that is instigating this change, but I applaud the writers, directors, studios and financiers to put passion and money behind our stories. We have proven that we can do this, we can continue to do this but only with the support of the industry and that money and passion,” she added.
