NICOLE KIDMAN ("CHRISTINE") first came to the attention of American audiences with her critically acclaimed performance in Phillip Noyce's riveting 1989 Australian psychological thriller Dead Calm. Kidman, the only Australian actress to win a Best Actress Oscar, has since become an internationally-recognized, award-winning 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 2002, she was honored with her first Oscar nomination for her performance in Baz Luhrmann's innovative musical, Moulin Rouge! For that role, and her performance in writer/director Alejandro Amenabar's psychological thriller, The Others, she received dual 2002 Golden Globe nominations, winning for Best Actress in a Musical. She was awarded her initial Golden Globe for a pitch-perfect, wickedly funny portrayal of a woman obsessed with becoming a TV personality at all costs, in Gus Van Sant's To Die For, and has been nominated three additional times for her performances in Jonathan Glazer's Birth, Anthony Minghella's Cold Mountain, and Robert Benton's Billy Bathgate.

In 2010, Kidman starred opposite Aaron Eckhart in Rabbit Hole, for which she received Academy Award, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best Actress. The film was developed by Kidman's production company, Blossom Films. Kidman's additional film credits include Margot at the Wedding, The Golden Compass, Academy Award winning animated musical Happy Feet; Just Go with It, Nine with Daniel Day Lewis, Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard, Australia, Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus, The Interpreter, Bewitched, The Human Stain, Dogville, Eyes Wide Shut, Birthday Girl, The Peacemaker, The Portrait of a Lady, Batman Forever, Malice and Far and Away. She also narrated the documentary release (Sundance Grand Jury Award and Audience Award-winner), God Grew Tired of Us, and also narrated the film biography of Simon Wiesenthal, I Have Never Forgotten You. In October 2012, Kidman starred in Lee Daniel's The Paperboy with Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and John Cusack. Her performance earned her an AACTA, Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nomination. The following year she was seen in Chan-wook Park's Stoker with Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Dermot Mulroney.

Kidman will next be seen starring as Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco, which premiered at Cannes Film Festival. She will also be seen in The Railway Man and Before I Go To Sleep, both films of which she stars opposite Colin Firth, Radius' Paddington, and Queen of the Desert in Morocco where she stars in the title character of Gertrude Bell with James Franco, Robert Pattinson and Damian Lewis. She most recently completed production on Strangerland with Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes and is currently in production on The Family Fang with Jason Bateman which her Blossom Films is producing.

In theater, Kidman made a highly-lauded London stage debut in the fall of 1998, starring with Iain Glenn in The Blue Room, David Hare's modern adaptation of Schnitzler's La Ronde. For her performance Kidman won London's Evening Standard Award and was nominated in the Best Actress category for a Laurence Olivier Award.

In 2012, Kidman was seen in HBO's "Hemingway and Gellhorn" alongside Clive Owen. Her portrayal as Martha Gellhorn earned her Emmy, SAG and Golden Globe nominations.

In January of 2006, Kidman was awarded Australia's highest honor, the Companion in the Order of Australia. She was also named, and continues to serve, as Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Development Fund for Women, UN Women, whose goals are to foster women's empowerment and gender equality, to raise awareness of the infringement on women's human rights around the world and to end violence against women. Kidman has also lent her voice in support of the Women's Cancer Program at Stanford with Dr. Jonathan Berek. Along with her husband, Keith Urban, she has helped raise millions over the years for the Women's Cancer Program which is a world-renowned center for research into the causes, treatment, prevention, and eventual cure of women's cancer.
