Nicole Kidman Honored at Santa Barbara Film Festival

Nicole Kidman Honored at Santa Barbara Film Festival

Nicole Kidman picks up the top honor during the 2011 Santa Barbara International Film Festival held at the Arlington Theater on Saturday (February 5) in Santa Barbara, California.

The 43-year-old Aussie actress received the Cinema Vanguard Award, which honors someone who takes artistic risks and has made a significant contribution to film.

Nic said, “I suppose that’s in my blood. I don’t even see it as taking a risk, I just see it as staying true to my heart and instinct.”

FYI: Nicole wore a Nina Ricci dress, Pierre Hardy shoes, Fred Leighton earrings, and a Prada clutch.

    Jared you should band KAZ and Sligo because they are the same person just spamming useless crap on the comments board.

    Someone with as large as feet like Kidman should not be wearing shoes like that. From the knees down, I’d swear I was looking at a tranny.

    Can’t act her way out of a bag.

    And she shows way too much gum when she smiles that plastic smile.

    Next!

    Just hope & pray that once all of the awards hoopla is over that she goes home to those beautiful little girls & that wonderfully talented Keith & spends some long quality time with them. They grow up so fast & they are the greatest “award/reward/gift” anybody could hope to have. Whether she wins the statue or not she’s already received something priceless. Wishing them all every possible blessing & grace.

    @mary:

    That’s right mary, here we go again with their sick, nasty comments.

    And look at this ignorant comment from E! message board and that hag Mimosa:

    “Excuse me….but who would actually be screaming to see ol’ Granny Freeze? No one. Her PR team must’ve paid a few hundred out of work people to make noise when the limo pulled up. And yes…PR firms have been known to employ fake fans.
    Either that, or they were actually excited to see someone else…LOL!

    Of course…this could be an exaggerated story too….and there were only 3 crazies screaming at anybody and everybody who showed up. It’s not like this particular film festival is all that big of a deal. It’s not Cannes. ”

    Yeah right, they’ve paid all these people to show up with cameras & lights to photograph & interview Nicole, just for PR. Not that she’s an Oscar-winning actress that’s highly praised, or has fans that follow her life & career that showed up to catch a glimpse of her.

    Check this out for yourself to see all the “exaggerated, fake & paid” press & fans screaming…lol

    Nicole deserves the Oscar this year for Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman will get it however. Black Swan was the worst movie. I wish people would vote based on the actual performance not the hype.

    Did you check out those crazy people on the E link! ?

    Whoa, , now that is serious metal illness.

    Why would E! want that kind of trash on their site?

    That site must be in real trouble to promote that kind of thing?

    @I_know_you!:

    When have we heard that before! According to them Nicole has paid every “fan” at a movie premiere, the “fans” lined up along her wedding day route, bought Keith awards, bought herself nominations, positive reviews, and entire venues of tickets for Keith’s concerts to get him on the highest grossing tour list. Because Keith can’t sell out a county fair.

    Those nutballs are delusional at best.

    Yes, Keith rocked it with a song from his new album “Get Closer” even though the audience looked half comatose. He’ll come back later with some more songs. He’s a great talented artist and his band is great as well.

    Nicole is so deserving of this honor and, yes, she should win the Oscar. Her acting was above outstanding. Natalie Portman will win because of the hype and the initial training for the role, but the movie and her role are overrated. “Margot at the Wedding” was a movie not many people saw, but Nicole was beyond awesome in that role. People with intelligence realize her total talent and what a wonderful person she is. Her husband, Keith Urban, is equally talented in his field. Keith is an awesome entertainer and such an intelligent man. I am not a lover of country music, but I found the music of Keith Urban and was enthralled. People need to listen to his music; he tells beautiful stories in his songs; not the usual sad, drinking country songs. Keith and Nicole so deserve their beautiful family and the happiness they have.

    @hello dolly:

    One of the many skeptic boards where membership is required. That’s right, besides posting on e, JJ and Urban Myths all day they post on message boards too.

    astilbe-michele-neverland47-pier7girl used to moderate over there. NHA United is stolen from NKU (Nicole Kidman United), a Nicole fansite that welcomed Keith fans with open arms. It was a bad for the skeptics because they had a huge fanbase and could prove time and time again that the skeptics were liars.

    The picture is their banner. nomorefan got served on E because of it. She said she had no clue what NHA (Nicole Haters) was but the truth was she was also moderating and everybody knew it. The skeptic boards are supposed to be a secret and skeptics pretend they don’t exist. They became so paranoid that at a certain point another member had to vouch for you and say they knew you for you to gain membership to a new board. There’s less than 10 of them. You tell me how much backstabbing had been going on my then. They didn’t know who was who! BAHAHAHAHAHA!

    What is up with the dress? I would never buy a dress that wasn’t finished at the bottom. I bet she paid a fortune for it, too. Nicole, where are all the pretty dresses you once wore?

    Jeanne Says:

    @hello dolly: Speaking of time, who spends all their time searching everything there is to know about the Urbans, and then stalk those that don’t go to the Church of KUNK to worship? How many hours are spent searching and saving every post that is made by complete strangers on other sites, public and private? What is wrong with having a private message board; there are thousands of them out there ranging from any topic you can think of? What effort did you go through to find skeptic boards and try to get on them and why? To spy and steal? How badly do you need to win? It is the same old same old. You don’t know anything new, but you must win, right? We aren’t going anywhere. You will never intimidate us to stop because you continue to be pathetic with your “efforts”. How many hours in the day do you spend with real people versus internet people?

    OH DON’T GO ANYWHERE. KEEP ON YOUR FOOLISH , VULGAR, RUDE, NONSENSE SO THE WORLD CAN SEE HOW NUTS YOU ARE.
    News flash, normal people do not wate 5 years of their life with hate.

    EVERY WORD YOU POST MAKES YOU LOOK WORSE. And especially CRAZY..

    The posters here want to have a little intelligent conversation and you are not able to do that, so trot back to E! with your tail between you legs and talk to yourself and answer yourself, and your couple of crazy tag team nuts

    Thanks to whoever posted you idiots pictures. I couldnt stop laughing. Mom Jeans? Home made fan shirts? Good grief!

    @Jimmy W.: Another disturbing attempt to make us shake in our boots. You use the name of an artist that is well-liked. Is this supposed to make us stop? By the way, wrong skeptic. To blue, “News flash, normal people do not wate 5 years of their life with hate.” What are you doing right now? By using upper case letters, in the internet world, that means you are yelling. Is that really necessary? Calm down; they are only celebrities – not your family.
