NICOLE KIDMAN HONOURED AT WOMEN IN HOLLYWOOD TRIBUTE

FROM PEOPLE

NICOLE KIDMAN was honoured Monday night at ELLE’S 15th annual WOMEN IN HOLLYWOOD tribute.

NICOLE and HALLE BERRY were among the noted actors who took home ICON AWARDS at the dinner and ceremony, which was held at THE FOUR SEASONS HOTEL in Beverly Hills.

NICOLE looked radiant in a Prada minidress. “It’s nice to be a part of a celebration,” she remarked. “It’s a lovely time to be working in Hollywood.”

At the ceremony later, SHIRLEY MacLAINE presented NICOLE with her award and marveled, “She’s in the Meryl Streep category in my opinion. She’s maybe, with Meryl, the two best.”

Australian ISLA FISHER, star of WEDDING CRASHERS, also spoke openly of her admiration for NICOLE: “She’s kind of the acting equivalent of a nine gang jujitsu master yellow belt.”

When ISLA accepted the CALVIN KLEIN SPOTLIGHT AWARD from COURTENEY COX, Ms. Fisher’s boyfriend, BORAT star SACHA BARON COHEN, proudly filmed her speech with a handheld camera.

Meanwhile, a Roberto Cavalli clad HALLE beamed as DIANE KEATON welcomed her on stage. She told the celeb packed audience about how DIANE wrote an inspirational note to her after her OSCAR win for MONSTER’S BALL. “I always go back to those words, Diane – that winning wasn’t everything.”

The evening’s other attendees included EVA MENDES, KATE BECKINSALE, JENNY McCARTHY, KERRY WASHINGTON, NICOLLETTE SHERIDAN and SHERYL CROW.

  1. so uh what do think of nicole in this

    obviously not oscar bait…but when was the last time a uh more in step with potential franchise/blockbuster worked for her ???

    and i hope if there’s a guy/sidekick or love interest. he’s put as much on the margins as the girlfriend usually is in action movies. *yeah* 🙂

    i wonder if this film is gonna be pushed as an ensemble or as the nicole show ???

  2. I don’t know, glim.

    I think NICOLE can do anything. But people regard her as a serious actor with a wide range. Especially since she won the OSCAR.

    I have no idea why she’d want to make a RAIDERS type blockbuster at this stage of the game. (Except, of course, for the *ahem* green stuff.)

    So who knows?

    I think the lead guy will be pushed as more of a costar if he’s equal to her in terms of status (the same level of star power, an OSCAR winner, an industry vet) and he’ll be more of an ensemble guy if his current level of prestige and fame are lesser than NICOLE’S.

    I believe so, anyway.

    Might be good for her to mix it up and have some fun. She usually takes on pretty heavy parts.

    We’ll have to wait and see….
