The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Sydney Confidential -

Ni­cole Kid­man may be the Aussie name on every­body’s lips headed into to­day’s Emmy Awards, but she is not the only star from Down Un­der on cen­tre stage in the lead-up to the red car­pet. Hol­ly­wood was abuzz over the week­end with pre-Em­mys par­ties, and a string of Aus­tralians were out in the lead-up to to­mor­row's cer­e­mony. The Aus­tralian Emmy Nom­i­nee Sun­set Re­cep­tion was held yes­ter­day and the Aussies turned out on force for the event. Or­ange Is The New Black star Ruby Rose ar­rived with girl­friend Jes­sica Origliasso from Aussie band The Veron­i­cas. The pair ap­peared to be cou­ple dress­ing in black and white. It would not be a Aussie film event without Ge­of­frey Rush. The leg­end of the in­dus­try is nom­i­nated to­day for his role de­pict­ing Al­bert Ein­stein.

Also in at­ten­dance were cos­tume de­signer Perry Meek, who has al­ready picked up an award, ac­tors Matt Levett and Oliver Ack­land and Big Lit­tle Lies author Liane Mo­ri­arty.

“I was ner­vous, but in a way I knew I was hand­ing it over to such tal­ented peo­ple,” Mo­ri­arty said of the show’s suc­cess.

“The names that we got ob­vi­ously with Ni­cole Kid­man and Reese Wither­spoon … was just in­cred­i­ble.”

“I’m sort of to the side but just en­joy­ing ev­ery mo­ment.”

Kid­man is the favourite to take out the Best Ac­tress gong for her role in Big Lit­tle Lies. Win or lose, the Aussie will surely be a hit on the red car­pet, reg­u­larly fea­tur­ing on the award cir­cuit’s best-dressed list.
