Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Nicole Kidman is wowing critics with her performance in Rabbit Hole, in which she plays a happily married woman whose life is turned upside down when her young son dies in a car accident. Kidman is no stranger to Hollywood awards season. The Australian actress is the owner of three Golden Globes, a BAFTA and an Oscar—not to mention countless nominations.
This Aussie actress first caught our attention in 1990, playing Tom Cruise's character's love interest in Days of Thunder. Not only did she go on to marry her leading man, but she finished up the 1990s by earning critics' praise for her roles in Billy Bathgate and To Die For. In 2001, shortly after her marriage to Tom Cruise ended, Kidman made a triumphant turn in Baz Luhrmann's romantic musical Moulin Rouge!. A string of box office- and critical-successes followed, including The Others, The Hours and Cold Mountain. In 2006, she married musician Keith Urban. The couple welcomed daughter Sunday Rose to the world in 2008, and in early 2011, their daughter Faith was born.
