Nicole Kidman's Golden Globes Acceptance Speech Just Connected 'Big Little Lies' to the #MeToo Movement, & It Was Perfect

It's no surprise that Nicole Kidman is the master of acceptance speeches, and her Golden Globes win for Best Actress in a Limited Series on Sunday night proved no differently. Taking home another award for her role in Big Little Lies, Kidman perfected the task of delivering yet another graceful acceptance speech, which you don't often see at the Globes. After all, there is free alcohol at this ceremony!

Kidman's speech was female-focused from the start, first thanking her daughters and then turning attention to her Big Little Lies co-stars. Addressing Reese Witherspoon, who was also her BLL co-producer, Kidman said, "We did this because of our friendship, our creative union and our support of each other. And I love you."

If we didn't already have confirmation of BLL's second season, this moment alone would've had me begging for one, tbh. 

Recognizing each of the main women in the cast, Kidman said, "Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, 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 also shared her mother's history of working as an activist for women's rights, reminding us that the Time's Up and #MeToo movements are far from being new concepts. "My momma 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.”

As she did with her Emmys acceptance speech in the fall, Kidman then discussed her BLL character's experience with domestic abuse and how relevant it was to actresses' mission to protest sexual harassment. 

"This character that I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now, abuse," Kidman said. "I do believe and I hope we can illicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them. Let's keep the conversation alive."

Just when I was wiping my eyes from how inspirational this gift of a woman is, she closed off with thanks for her husband Keith Urban. "When my cheek is against yours, everything melts away and that is love." Okay, I will fight anyone who doubts these two's status as one of Hollywood's loveliest couples.

Props to Kidman for always being a classy example of a powerful woman in the film and TV industry. Here's to her and the rest of the Big Little Lies cast surely making more of these inspirational speeches in the future.
