Australian star Nicole Kidman has won the Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie prize at the Primetime Emmy Awards.
Nicole Kidman won the Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie prize at the Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (17.09.17).
The 50-year-old star won the coveted award on account of her starring role in the HBO mini-series 'Big Little Lies', which also features the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley, and in her acceptance speech, Nicole thanked her husband Keith Urban and her children.
The Australian actress - who has kids Isabella, 24, Connor, 22, Sunday, nine, and Faith, six - said: ''I have a huge artistic family who supported me throughout all my ups and downs. You have been so loyal to me throughout my whole life thank you for that.
''I have two little girls - Sunnie and Faith. And my darling Keith who I asked to help me pursue this artistic path. And they have sacrificed so much for it.
''So this is yours. I just want my two little girls to have this on their shelf and to look at it and go, 'Every time my mumma didn't put me to bed it's because of this - (at least) I got something!'''
In her speech, Nicole also hailed the impact of the acclaimed series, saying it has ''shone a light on domestic abuse''.
She explained: ''It is a complicated, insidious disease. It exists far more than we allow ourselves to know.
''It is filled with shame and secrecy. And by you acknowledging me with this award it shines a light on it even more.''
In addition to Nicole's personal triumph, 'Big Little Lies' was also named Best Limited Series at the awards bash.
Other big-name winners at the Microsoft Theater - where TV star Stephen Colbert performed the role of host - included Riz Ahmed, who won the Best Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie for his role in 'The Night Of', while Donald Glover was named the Best Comedy Actor for 'Atlanta'.
