Nicole Kidman was the first big winner of the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards last night. Her acceptance speech included a heartfelt thank you to her husband, Keith Urban.
After taking the stage to accept the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series for the HBO series Big Little Lies, she thanked an array of women who had inspired her and helped her along the path to stardom. Before finishing up, she took a moment to acknowledge Urban.
“When my cheek is against yours, everything melts away,” she told him from the stage. “I love you.”
Kidman’s speech was one of many powerful moments during the ceremony. Most in attendance were dressed in black as a show of support for the #TimesUp movement. The campaign was created as a response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal and other recent allegations of assault and harassment from other figures inside and outside off Hollywood.
In the weeks following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Keith Urban released his song “Female.” The tune, which also features Kidman on guest vocals, was initially reported to have been inspired by the Weinstein allegations. However, Urban’s co-writers were later quoted as saying that it had not been directly influenced by the news story.
