NICOLE KIDMAN: Oh, first cab off the rank. Yikes. That means my daughters are still awake. So, Sunny, Faith, I love you. I’m bringing this home to you, babies. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for supporting us. Thank you to HBO, Richard Plepler for supporting and committing to us. And when I say “us,” I’m talking about Reese Witherspoon and myself. We did this because of our friendship, our creative union, and our support of each other, and I love you. Also, I want to say, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoe Kravitz, we sat at a table. We pledged allegiance to each other and commitment to each other, and this is ours to share. Wow, the power of women.
Also, I speak on behalf of the five of us because we would not be in existence without this show, and it wouldn’t be as good as it has been, without the mastery of Jean‑Marc Vallee and David E. Kelley. And also Liane Moriarty. And I have to say, Bruna Papandrea and Per Saari, your tenacity is amazing. Thank you. There’s been people in my life, please, for decades who I just ‑‑ if I get a chance to thank them, I’m thanking them. Kevin Huvane , Susan Baxen , Alan Werthheimer Guyer , Chris Andrews , Wendy Day , Antochio Brown , all of you, Miranda, Liz, all of you. I love you. And my mama. My mama was an advocate for the women’s movement when I was growing up. And 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.
And this character that I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now, abuse. 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. Let’s do it. And, Keith Urban, when my cheek is against yours, everything melts away, and that is love. It’s true. I love you so much. God bless you. Thank you.
