What will & should win Best Comedy at the Emmys?

"If Veep wins I won’t complain. Really smart series that ended on a perfect note." - Lucky

"Russian Doll is probably the most affecting show I watched over the last year. It's brilliant and I love it - but as you say, its format and its tone is not at all friendly to it winning this. I" - ScottC

"Fleabag: Exhilarating, high wire stuff. Any episode is a masterclass of writing." -Arkaan

Kidman in Cannes. Part 1. 

Jose here. The time we've all been waiting for has come, Nicole Kidman has made her first appearance at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival *insert heavenly choir* the Oscar winner has approximately four projects that will be screened in and out of competition at the festival, which means we might get to see her as many times as we did when she was in the jury four years ago! To celebrate we are picking up with our Kidman in Cannes series with Nicole at the premiere of How to Talk to Girls at Parties.

Bask yourself in the glory of the full look after the jump.

Who She Wore: Rodarte 
Which Director She's Trying to Lure: Since her Alexander McQueen gown from the Golden Globes it seems Nicole has been trying to lure Bill Condon into casting her in a Beauty and the Beast sequel. I like how more than ever she's embracing everything glitter. Some might find the dress a bit too matronly, but between the hemline, the jewels and the perfect shows she makes this classy and sexy.
What Mrs Coulter would think of this: *sly grin*

Clearly, Elle Fanning was as excited as we are to see Nicole, since she didn't attend the photocall earlier during the day.

And, wouldn't you give your firstborn to be invited to this wedding?

Which of Nicole's upcoming red carpets are you most excited about?

This gown looks like a The Beguiled piece, but sparkling

She does look matronly. Also the movie was
Not very well received.

Sure, but will she finally win Best Actress?

May 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBrad

At least she doesn't look Sandy Powell Silly.

Brad. Maybe but child actresses in Loveless and Wondertruck, Adele in 120pm and Huppert have bigger shot apparently based of review and predictions

May 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAmazingAmy

Nic and Elle.... damn!!!!!

I am getting crazy abuela in a bath robe. What is her actual age now?

May 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterJono

Rarely does the popular star of the festival win any award but she really should at this point. Kidman did not plan this. She ended up with four projects at Cannes purely by virtue of embarking on interesting work with interesting directors, two of them women.
The word on How to Talk to Girls at Parties makes it sound like a light diversion. The word on The Killing of A Sacred Deer makes it sound absolutely phenomenal (even the bad reviews). I am worried for The Beguiled (mostly because critics can be cruel with Sofia Coppola and Nicole is doing a southern accent which many people cannot get over) but i am not worried for Top of the Lake because i think it s going to be amazing.

There are no child actresses in Loveless. The contender is Maryana Spyvak. From what I've read she's the clear favorite right now. Huppert and Adele are in ensemble pieces and didn't get the best reviews of their movies.

Who's holding her hand in the pic with Elle Fanning.

We can see it's not Sandy because of the cuff collar (although it's clearly someone in Red carpet wear).

I'm guessing the light reflected from the dress is so dazzling Nicole was temporarily blinded, and needed guiding every step to the screen. That also explains why she's so close to Elle trying to recognise her.

May 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterBJT

It's Rodarte. She gets points for even trying but they are a black hole of a fashion house swallowing up actresses whole.

May 22, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDerreck.

It's John Cameron Mitchell holding her hand

May 23, 2017 | Unregistered Commentercal roth

Has Sandy Powell gotten to dress Nicole before? I feel like this might be the first time... They seem like natural fits.

May 24, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterGlenn Dunks

She is the best actor. Also, the movies are a superhit. you should download final fantasy 9 android game.
