In her acceptance speech Nicole thanked her co-star Reese Witherspoon saying: “Reese. I share this with you. Without you I would not be standing up here.”

Nicole also used her acceptance speech to talk about the often hidden issue of domestic Violence. After thanking her husband and daughters for supporting her,  Kidman said that she hoped the Emmy win would teach her daughters a valuable lesson about the power of acting. “I want them  to know sometimes when you’re acting you get a chance to bring a bigger message. And this is their contribution and your contribution. We shone a light on domestic abuse,” she said.
