Thanking Reese Witherspoon and her fellow Big Little Lies actors, Kidman said, “We did this because of our friendship, our creative union and our support of each other. And I love you.” She added, “Laura Dern, Shailene, Zoe we sat at a table and pledged allegiance to each other and commitment to each other and this is ours to share. Wow, the power of women.”

Kidman continued, “This character I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now: abuse … Let’s keep the convo alive.”

Speaking to her husband, Keith Urban, she said, “When my cheek is against yours everything melts away and that is love. It’s true. I love you so much.”

HBO’s Big Little Lies and FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan dominated the category. Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon were nominated for playing Joan Crawford and Bette Davis respectively in the hit FX mini-series and Witherspoon was also nominated for Big Little Lies. Jessica Biel was nominated for the USA Network show The Sinner, as well.
