"It's true. I love you so much", Kidman said to applause. "Because of her, I'm standing here".

Big Little Lies is up for Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, while its other cast members are nominated for Best Performance By an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Alexander Skarsgaard) and Best Performance By an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television (Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley).

In addition to her husband, Kidman also thanked her mother.

An emotional Nicole Kidman has used her Golden Globe acceptance speech to honour her mother for the work she did in Australia as an advocate for women.

"To the people out there who are feeling silenced. we see you, we hear you and we will tell your stories", she added.

These Celebrities Didn't Wear Black to Golden Globes 2018
Instead, the 36-year-old slipped into a sliced red dress - allowing her naked breasts and killer pins to be put proudly on show. Together we can center the voices of the most marginalized among us.

' [Co-stars] Reese [Witherspoon], Zoe [Kravitz], Laura [Dern], Shailene [Woodley] - we pledged allegiance to each other, and this is ours to share'.

"This character that I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now: abuse", Kidman said during her speech. But she appears to be taking to Instagram to spotlight a cause ― the Time's Up movement against workplace sexual harassment, which Kidman hashtagged in her first post. "Let's keep the conversation alive". "The power of women".

And finally, Kidman turned her attention to her husband of more than 10 years, Keith Urban.

The star won the best actress in a limited series prize for her role as a victim of domestic violence in Big Little Lies. "When my cheek is against yours, everything melts away", she said to him. The Australian actress started by confessing her love and respect for her co-star and friend Reese Witherspoon.

It's not unusual for the married couple to wear black on a red carpet, but by doing so on this night they fell in line with the Time's Up initiative - a voice for women who've suffered sexual harassment and assault.
