Dick Clark productions announced today that Nicole Kidman, a multi-award-winning actor known for her fearlessness and intelligence, will receive the ‘Hollywood Career Achievement Award’ at the 22nd Annual Hollywood Film Awards. Her selection for this award is a tribute to the versatility of her performances over the years, with characters as diverse and extraordinary as an aspiring television personality with a dark motive in Gus Van Zant’s ‘To Die For’ to the iconic and complicated Virginia Woolf in ‘The Hours’; from a wife who, with her husband, embarks on an odyssey of sexual and moral discovery in Kubrick’s ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ to ‘Satine’, the singing and dancing courtesan in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Moulin Rouge!’; and from the unguarded adoptive mother of an orphan boy longing to help others in need in Garth Davis’ ‘Lion’ to a woman on the run who pays a huge price to be hidden in Lars von Triers’ controversial and thrilling ‘Dogville’.
In 2002, Kidman was honored with her first Oscar nomination for her performance in Baz Luhrmann’s innovative musical, ‘Moulin Rough!’ For that role, and her performance in writer/director Alejandro Amenabar’s psychological thriller, ‘The Others’, she received dual 2002 Golden Globe nominations, winning Best Actress in a Musical. The following year, Kidman won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA Award and a Berlin Silver Bear for her portrayal of Virginia Woolf in Stephen Daldry’s ‘The Hours’. She has since been nominated for a total of four Academy Awards – winning one – 12 Golden Globes – winning four.
