Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban Share Awkward Kiss After Golden Globes Win

The Golden Globe winner redeemed herself by delivering a flawless speech and singling out her husband.

The Golden Globes got off to an awkward start.

Nicole Kidman took home the night’s first award for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie for her role as Celeste on Big Little Lies, and things went a little awry between Kidman and her husband, Keith Urban.

Before making her way onstage to collect her award, Kidman rushed to plant a kiss on Urban, only he wasn’t exactly ready for the moment, prompting an awkward 10-second exchange between the couple where she couldn't seem to locate his face.

Once Kidman made her way to the stage, she made light of the significance of the Golden Globe win in the current climate.

“My mama was an advocate for the women’s movement when I was growing up and because of her, I’m standing here. My achievements are her achievements. Antonia Kidman, my sister and I say thank you, Janelle Kidman, for what you fought for so hard,” Kidman said.

“This character that I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now: abuse,” she added. “I do believe and I hope we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them. Let’s keep the conversation alive. Let’s do it.”

Kidman closed out her heartwarming speech by singling out her husband.

“Keith Urban, when my cheek is against yours, everything else melts away and that’s love,” Kidman said, her voice breaking with emotion.
