Golden Globe Nominee Nicole Kidman On Her Favorite Film This Year (Not Counting ‘Destroyer’)

Nicole Kidman stars in awards contender “Destroyer,” but her favorite film this awards season — apart from her own, of course — is Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman.”

“I loved ‘BlacKkKlansman’ — I’m so happy for them,” Kidman told TheWrap following her Golden Globes nomination for her role in Karyn Kusama’s thriller. “I’ve known Spike for so many years.”

Kidman had just landed in Los Angeles when she heard about her Golden Globes nomination. “I just got off the plane from Australia and I was walking through the airport and I got all of these texts and I was just so happy that ‘Destroyer’ got acknowledged because Erin Bell is such an unusual female role to be acknowledged for,” Kidman said. “I think it helps other films like this to be made.”

The actress was nominated in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama category, alongside Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”), Glenn Close (“The Wife”), Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Rosamund Pike (“A Private War”). Throughout her career, Kidman has received 13 Golden Globe nominations and four wins, for “Big Little Lies” last year, 2003’s “The Hours,” 2002’s “Moulin Rouge” and 1996’s “To Die For.”

Kidman knew “Destroyer” was a special project when it was in production, she said. She also said that the film took an enormous toll on her family, so seeing the film acknowledged was an amazing feat.

“We were working so hard — 15, 16 hour days — and people were there because of passion, not because of money,” Kidman said. “It was a low-budget film and doing it every day we were all hoping it would special. It’s always hope — people were giving their blood, sweat and tears.”

She also said she would be bringing her husband, country singer Keith Urban, to the award show on Jan. 6.

Next up for Kidman is “Aquaman,” in which she plays Queen Atlanna. James Wan’s superhero entry hits theaters on Dec. 21.

“Talk about completely different [projects]!” she said. “Obviously, ‘Aquaman’ was fun and ‘Destroyer’ was an enormous amount of work for every frame of that film. James Wan [is someone] who I adore, and my kids get to see ‘Aquaman’ — they don’t get to see ‘Destroyer.'”
