Ni­cole in line for an Emmy

Sunday Mail - - CONFIDENTIAL -

CAN Ni­cole Kid­man cap her re­cent ca­reer turn­around with an Emmy?

That’s what Hol­ly­wood is ask­ing as she firms as favourite to take the out­stand­ing lead ac­tress gong to­mor­row for her por­trayal of abused wife Celeste Wright in the Fox­tel drama Big Lit­tle Lies.

The seven-part drama, co­pro­duced by Ni­cole from the novel by Aussie au­thor Liane Mo­ri­arty, has been nom­i­nated for a whop­ping 14 Em­mys.

Ni­cole has also re­ceived rave re­views for her last two movies The Beguiled and Lion, for which she was Os­carnom­i­nated as best sup­port­ing ac­tress, and BBC mini-series Top of the Lake: China Girl.

“Big Lit­tle Lies is painful to watch,” Ni­cole says. “It’s deeply un­com­fort­able and com­pli­cated, just as I wanted.”

Ge­of­frey Rush is up for out­stand­ing lead ac­tor for his por­trayal of Al­bert Ein­stein in the Na­tional Ge­o­graphic TV series Ge­nius.

A third Aus­tralian ac­tor, Judy Davis, has been nom­i­nated, for her por­trayal of gos­sip queen Hedda Hop­per in FX TV’s Feud: Bette and Joan.

FANS of the Ade­laide-made cult com­edy series Dan­ger 5 now have a rare op­por­tu­nity to own props and cos­tumes from the tele­vi­sion pro­gram.

Start­ing at 9.30am to­day, an eBay auc­tion will go live with more than 150 pieces from the show and will run for the next week.

“Since the show fin­ished, we’ve had so many re­quests from fans to buy things we used in the show,” says Dan­ger 5 co-cre­ator David Ashby.

The auc­tion will in­clude head­pieces, cos­tumes, pup­pets and toys but David says one item in par­tic­u­lar is al­ready at­tract­ing its fair share of at­ten­tion.

“It’s the orig­i­nal copy of a mag­a­zine called Sen­si­ble Chuckle,” he says. “The mag­a­zine ac­tu­ally be­came more fa­mous than the show it­self be­cause it got turned into a meme and blew up on­line.

“Ba­si­cally the auc­tion is not only a rare op­por­tu­nity to get mem­o­ra­bilia that was ac­tu­ally used on screen in the show, but it’s also a great way to pick up some­thing won­der­ful for your man cave ... or even bet­ter, your bed­room.”

RAW PRAWNS: Dan­ger 5 cast mem­bers Dario Russo, Natasa Ris­tic and David Ashby – and friends.
