With 15 Golden Globe nominations and five wins to her name, it’s no (big) secret that Nicole Kidman is a Hollywood Foreign Press Association sweetheart after winning her latest award for actor for David E Kelley’s HBO series « Big Little Lies » in Best TV Movie / Limited Actress of 2018, she’s close to hitting the jackpot in that exact category once again thanks to another of Kelley’s HBO efforts , « The Undoing », a six-part miniseries based on the 2014 novel by Jean Hanff Korelitz « You Should Have Known » and debuted on Sunday, October 25
Directed by Susanne Bier, the show centers on Kidman’s character, Grace Fraser, who leads a most idyllic life in New York City as a successful therapist about to publish her first book, A Woman in her devoted husband Jonathan (Hugh Grant) and loving mother of their son Henry (Noah Jupe) But he is quickly upset after the violent death of someone the family knows and Jonathan suddenly disappears, which opens a Pandora’s Box containing disturbing details about her involvement in a public disaster, raising questions as to whether Grace really knew the man she married
Judy Berman (Time): « Kidman is a character who oscillates between insight and self-delusion, porcelain doll fragility and quiet determination. She plays this kind of role so surprisingly well, with a physique so haunted and heartbreaking… ”
Jen Chaney (Vautour): “Kidman has always had a knack for unearthing simultaneous fragility and tungsten-level strength in each of the women she plays, and this role gives her a great opportunity to start over Wearing long Coiled red braids that were once her signature, Kidman fully indulges in Grace’s mix of desperation and stubbornness »
Dave Nemetz (TV Line): « Kidman does most of the heavy lifting here, and unsurprisingly she’s great […] Kidman has a thousand different emotions to play with, and she’s able to go from confused to scared. to sad to angry within moments, giving the series a heavy emotional anchor even as the twists start to pile in «
Jeff Sneider (Collider): “As usual, Kidman delivers a rock-solid performance as Grace, and Bier’s extreme close-ups of her eyes – suspicious and red with concern – help communicate the confusion. general character, as Grace seems to do flipping back and forth between what she believes and what she wants to believe «
As of this writing, the actress sits third in our combined Globes running ratings, behind Shira Haas and America’s “Mrs Cate Blanchett, both of whom scared Emmy nominations for their respective series earlier this year, but were beaten by Regina King of « Watchmen » Since « Watchmen » aired in 2019 and therefore already competed in last year’s winter prizes, the Globes race is now probably wide open This is great news for Kidman as the HFPA loves being the first group to take over the latest shows in town
Cynthia Erivo (« Genius: Aretha ») and Michaela Coel (« I May Destroy You ») complete the lineup scheduled for fourth and fifth places respectively But ‘Aretha’ – which was originally due to debut on Nat Geo this spring but has been pushed back indefinitely after production was forced to shut down due to COVID-19 – does not yet have a premiere date, while that « Destroy You » aired on HBO over the summer and might not be a priority once the Globes launch next February And unlike « The Undoing, » no show is expected to make the cut for Best TV Movie / limited series, which is a prerequisite for a victory in the category of leading actresses in the past five years; Maggie Gyllenhaal was the last to triumph without her 2015 nominated show (« The Honorable Woman »)
Kidman can also take advantage of the fact that Kelley has been a lucky charm for his actors at the Globes. To date, he has produced a whopping 59 total acting nominations and 14 wins, including seven offers and three wins for « Lies. « (including two names and one win for Kidman) So she is well placed to win her sixth career statuette for » The Undoing «
Three of Kidman’s other four Globe wins were on the film side: two in Best Motion Picture / Musical for « To Die For » (1995) and « Moulin Rouge! » (2001), and one in Best Dramatic Actress for « The Hours » (2002) Her last was for her production work on « Lies » in Best Limited Series, a category to which she can also return as an executive producer. on « The Undoing »
It’s also worth mentioning that Kidman may earn an additional name for Ryan Murphy’s feature film « The Prom » – an on-screen stage adaptation of the 2018 Broadway musical of the same name that will be released. on Netflix on December 11 – in the Best Supporting Actress category
