Big Little Lies star Nicole Kidman celebrated the "power of women" as she picked up the first prize at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.
The actress got the Los Angeles ceremony off to a strong start as she claimed the accolade for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, beating fellow nominees including her TV co-star and co-producer Reese Witherspoon, and she dedicated the accolade to their female-strong cast.
Addressing Reese from the stage, the Emmy-winner told the audience, "We did this because of our friendship, our creative union, and our support of each other, and I love you...
"Also, I wanna say, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoe Kravitz: we sat at a table, we pledged allegiance to each other and commitment to each other, and this is ours to share. Wow, the power of women!"
The award was Nicole's fourth Globes honor, and after giving a sweet shout out to her young daughters Sunday and Faith at the top of her speech, she turned the spotlight on her husband, country singer Keith Urban.
"Keith Urban, when my cheek is against yours, everything melts away, and that is love," she gushed, growing emotional as she added, "I love you so much!"
Sam Rockwell became the night's second big winner as he beat Christopher Plummer, Richard Jenkins, Armie Hammer, and Willem Dafoe to claim Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
Meanwhile, event host Seth Meyers kicked off the prizegiving by making light of Hollywood's sexual misconduct scandals, cracking tongue-in-cheek jokes at the expense of disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey.
"There's a new era underway and I can tell, because it's been years since a white man was this nervous in Hollywood!" he quipped.
The majority of stars attending the Golden Globes wore black to show solidarity for the new Time's Up movement, which calls for an end to inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace, and for global equality. Meryl Streep, Viola Davis, Gal Gadot, Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria, Witherspoon, and Kidman were among the celebrity campaigners who took part in the red carpet black-out.
