Nicole Kidman not only faces tough competition from Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes but the Australian star could be without two of her most valued fashion stylists for the A-List Hollywood awards night.
Kidman says her stylists, daughters Sunday Rose, 10, and Faith Margaret, 8, might have more pressing matters than helping her pick the right gown, accessories and hairstyle for the red carpet walk and ceremony in Beverly Hills on Sunday (midday Monday AEDT).
“It depends on what toys they’re playing with and what play dates they have,” Kidman told reporters at the Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts international awards in West Hollywood.
Kidman, Troye Sivan and Yvonne Strahovski are Australia’s Globe nominees.
Lady Gaga, usually a force at the Grammys and other music awards ceremonies, is expected to cross over and be a Globes spoiler for Kidman and Sivan.
Kidman is nominated for the best actress in a drama Globe for her disturbing performance as a broken Los Angeles detective in Destroyer, but Gaga is the favourite for her breakthrough role in A Star Is Born.
The other best actress in a drama nominees are Glenn Close (The Wife), Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me) and Rosamund Pike (A Private War).
Sivan is nominated in the best song category for Revelation, co-written and performed with Iceland’s Jonsi for the Joel Edgerton-directed and Kidman co-starring drama Boy Erased, about the son of Baptist parents forced to undergo gay conversion therapy.
Gaga and her A Star is Born co-star and director, Bradley Cooper, are the frontrunners for their song Shallow, although the category is stacked with music titans with Kendrick Lamar (All the Stars - Black Panther), Dolly Parton (Girl in the Movies - Dumplin’) and Annie Lennox (Requiem for a Private War - A Private War) also nominated.
Kidman is a big Sivan fan after working with the Perth 23-year-old.
“I want to give a shout out to Troye Sivan who is not only in Boy Erased, but also wrote the most beautiful music,” Kidman said at Friday’s AACTA ceremony.
Strahovski is up for a supporting actress Globe for her TV drama series The Handmaid's Tale, against Thandie Newton (Westworld), Penelope Cruz (The Assassination of Gianni Versace), Patricia Clarkson (Sharp Objects) and Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs Maisel).
Vice, the biopic starring Christian Bale as former US vice president Dick Cheney, is the most nominated film with six, followed by A Star Is Born, Green Book and BlacKkKlansman with five.
Disney's Marvel blockbuster Black Panther has three nominations, including best drama.
Cooper is the favourite to win best actor in a drama for A Star Is Born.
He is up against William Dafoe (At Eternity's Gate), Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased), Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) and John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman).
The Globes are one of the major awards ceremonies ahead of the January 22 Oscar nominations and February 24 Oscar ceremony.
