HAPPY FEET

NICOLE KIDMAN (Norma Jean) first came to the attention of American audiences with her critically acclaimed performance in the riveting 1989 psychological thriller "Dead Calm.” She has since become an internationally recognized awardwinning actress known for her range and versatility. In 2003, 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.” In the year prior, she was honored with her first Oscar nomination and second Golden Globe Award for her work on Baz Luhrman's "Moulin Rouge!” She was awarded her first Golden Globe for her portrayal of the wickedly ambitious Suzanne Stone in Gus Van Sant's "To Die For,” and has been Golden Globe-nominated four other times for her performances in "Birth,” "Cold Mountain,” "The Others” and "Billy Bathgate.”

Last year, Kidman starred in Sydney Pollack's thriller "The Interpreter,” and with Will Ferrell in Nora Ephron's "Bewitched.” She narrated this year's Sundance Grand Jury Award and Audience Award-winning documentary "God Grew Tired of Us,” and was recently seen in "Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus,” directed by Steven Shainberg, which premiered this fall at the Telluride Film Festival and the RomeFilmFest.

Upcoming films for Kidman include Oliver Hirschbiegel's thriller "The Invasion,” with Daniel Craig, and Noah Baumbach's as-yet-untitled feature, also starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jack Black. She is currently filming "The Golden Compass,” director Chris Weitz's screen adaptation of the first volume in Phillip Pullman's popular fantasy trilogy, "His Dark Materials.” Kidman is also the narrator in the forthcoming film biography of Simon Wiesenthal, "I Have Never Forgotten You.” Early next year, she will reunite with "Moulin Rouge!” director Baz Luhrmann and fellow Australian actor Hugh Jackman to film an epic love story set in Australia's outback.

Kidman's additional film credits include Robert Benton's "The Human Stain”; Lars von Trier's "Dogville”; Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut”; "The Peacemaker,” with George Clooney; Jane Campion's "The Portrait of a Lady”; "Batman Forever”; "Malice”; and Ron Howard's "Far and Away.”

In January of this year, Kidman was awarded Australia's highest honor, the Companion in the Order of Australia. She was also named Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), a role that will focus on raising awareness of the infringement on women's human rights around the world. For the past nine years, Kidman has served as the UNICEF Ambassador for Australia. Three years ago, she became the first Chair of the Women's Health Fund at UCLA, at the David Geffen School of Medicine.
