Keith Urban is one lucky man.
On Sunday night, Jan. 7, Keith watched his wife, Nicole Kidman, win her fourth Golden Globe trophy. She thanked him at the end of her acceptance speech, saying, “Keith Urban, when my cheek is against yours, everything melts away, and that is love. It’s true. I love you so much.”
Now, that’s a big love!
Keith was beaming as he sat in the audience during Nicole’s big moment. She was the first winner of the night, which meant she could send out a message to her young daughters, who would have still been awake.
She said, “Sunny, Faith, I love you. I’m bringing this home to you, babies.”
Nicole won the Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture for TV category for her leading role in HBO’s “Big Little Lies.” She was quick to thank her co-star and co-producer on the project, Reese Witherspoon, who was sitting beside Keith as they watched her speech.
Nicole said to Reese, “We did this because [of] our friendship, our creative union and our support of each other, and I love you.”
She also saluted her other “Big Little Lies” co-stars Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz, saying, “This is ours to share. Wow. The power of women!”
Keith and Nicole were both dressed in black in keeping with the evening’s theme of equality for women in the workplace. Nicole drew a parallel between the women in Hollywood and those in other industries who have spoken out in the last few months against the men who have harassed them during their careers.
“This character that I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now — abuse,” said Nicole. “I do believe, and I hope we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them. Let’s keep the conversation alive.”
Nicole also thanked her mother for teaching her to stand up for women’s rights.
She said, “My mama was an advocate for the women’s movement when I was growing up. Because of her, I’m standing here. My achievements are her achievements. Antonia Kidman, my sister, and I say thank you Janelle Kidman for what you fought for so hard.”
Congratulations on your big win, Nicole!
