    Greatest Nicole Kidman performance ever put on film???

    I’m not counting her work on television.
    I know there are so many terrific performances she did across the decades that I’m gonna leave out. But sadly there’s only ten options available, so you can write down what you think it’s her greatest performance if I didn’t put it on the list.

    Vote and comment.

    Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus (2006) remains my personal favorite Kidman performance and movie.

    The one she should have won her Lead Oscar for…

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    I think initial hesitation around her then was being Mrs Tom Cruise.

    I know and I don’t understand why. I mean I don’t see how if you saw that film you wouldn’t at the very least nominate her for that.

    IMO she should have won for that in 1996, Renée Zellweger should have won in 2002 for Chicago instead of Kidman and Shohreh Aghdashloo should have won Supporting Actress in 2003 for House of Sand and Fog instead of Zellweger.

    Industry jealousy. Your life is easy because you married the biggest movie star in the world. You’ll never have trouble finding work because keeping you employed looks good for us with your husband. Hollywood unfairly likes to humble people. When he divorced her she became vulnerable. And because she had enough sense not to publicly disparage him but do quality work in specialty house movies it built momentum in her favor.

    Anyway here’s how I’d rank her performances (of those I’ve seen) :

    1. To Die For
    2. Dogville
    3. Eyes Wide Shut
    4. Lion
    5. The Killing of a Sacred Deer
    6. The Beguiled
    7. The Golden Compass (the film was trash but she was phenomenal)
    8. Dead Calm
    9. Moulin Rouge
    10. Paddington
    11. Bombshell
    12. The Hours
    13. Australia

    Well thank god she managed to move past being Mrs Tom Cruise and become an Oscar winner and multiple times nominee and an Emmy winner.

    Julianne Moore and Diane Lane were still quite superior IMO. I think she was very deserving for Jerry Maguire and deserved a nomination but she was never the best in her category IMO. Her win for Cold Mountain is literally one of the worst wins EVER.

    I haven’t seen Far From Heaven or Unfaithful but I thought Renée was actually great in Chicago and certainly better than Kidman in The Hours (I say this as someone who thinks Kidman is a better actor) that year. I guess I’m also in the minority because I don’t mind her win for Judy that much either. It was still well deserved even if I thought Jessie Buckley in Wild Rose and Lupita Nyong’o in Us were more deserving but still I prefer Zellweger to some of the other wins this decade in this category and still thought she was an excellent winner.

    This being said her win for Cold Mountain was ATROCIOUS. I mean I may think people are a bit too harsh on Zellweger sometimes but no one will ever convince me tell me when watching the clips shown below that she wasn’t the weakest nominee in that category that year and that Shohreh Aghdashloo didn’t deserve that Oscar. It’s a shame because Shohreh was absolutely phenomenal throughout that entire film and I don’t know whether she’ll have a chance to get nominated again or win.

    It is interesting the contrast in the audience reception of her two wins. Like when she won for Judy the crowd gave her a standing ovation whilst when she won for Cold Mountain there was a whole sense of apathy.

    I’m a big fan of Kidman’s performance in MOULIN ROUGE! A less bright actress in that role would ruin the entire movie – for me, it’s her career defining performance.
    Kidman is a superior actress and she has shown great work even in lesser movies. A actress to celebrate for sure.

    My TOP 10 Kidman performances:
    #1 – Moulin Rouge! (2001)
    #2 – Birth (2004)
    #3 – To Die For (1995)
    #4 – Destroyer (2018)
    #5 – The Hours (2002)
    #6 – The Paperboy (2012)
    #7 – The Others (2001)
    #8 – Lion (2016)
    #9 – Dogville (2003)
    #10 – The Beguiled (2017)

    1995 was a great year for the Best Actress race.
    The final Oscar nominees shortlist was quite impressive imo:
    * Susan Sarandon, Dead Man Walking (WINNER)
    * Elisabeth Shue, Leaving Las Vegas
    * Sharon Stone, Casino
    * Meryl Streep, The Bridges of Madison County
    * Emma Thompson, Sense & Sensibility

    The only nominee I could switch for Kidman would be Sharon Stone, but even Stone was great in that Martin Scorsese movie
