Nicole Kidman is speaking out about domestic violence again. Nicole Kidman is asking her “3.5 billion strong and beautiful sisters” to support each other in the fight against domestic violence. The 50-year-old actress, who won an Emmy for her role as Celeste Wright, a lawyer who is physically and emotionally abused by her husband, in HBO’s series Big Little Lies, penned an open letter in Porter magazine’s Winter issue addressing the inequalities faced by women.
With so many great shows on TV during the last year, there were a lot of great costumes. Here are some memorable moments and designs from the Emmy nominees.
The finale of Big Little Lies was an emotional, twisted doozy, and an affirmation of deep female friendship that withstands insane odds. Now-widowed Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman) closed out the show cavorting on the beach with the other moms. For the first time, we saw her showing actual skin, now that her abusive husband is dead after a fortuitously timed push down the stairs.
Nicole Kidman is a shoo-in for an Emmy nomination, and likely a win for her searingly understated, quietly anguished portrayal of an abused wife in Big Little Lies. The finale to the buzzy HBO series, co-starring Reese Witherspoon as the town scandalmonger and Shailene Woodley as a mysterious single mother raising a child of rape, will air Sunday night.
Laura Dern seems to be everywhere these days. That’s because she is. She’s the ferocious Renata in Big Little Lies, she’s a recovering drug addict in Wilson, and she has two top-secret roles in Twin Peaks and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And it’s only March. Her secret to nailing those disparate performances: “You try to find your way in when you read a script.”
