Nicole Kidman is catching heat on social media after thanking her children with Keith Urban in her Emmy acceptance speech, but failing to mention the two children she adopted with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
Kidman accepted the award for Outstanding Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for HBO's Big Little Lies, tearfully thanking Urban and her daughters Sunday, 9, and Faith, 6.
"I have two little girls, Sunday and Faith, and my darling Keith," Kidman, 50, said in her speech. "This is yours. I want my little girls to have this on their shelf and to look at it and go, 'Every time my mommy didn't put me to bed, it's because of this. I got something!'"Fans were surprised that Kidman didn’t even mention Isabella, 24, and Connor, 22.
On social media, many condemned her, but others pointed out that Kidman is likely considered a “suppressive person” by her daughters, who are Scientologists. Leah Remini, a former Scientologist and outspoken critic of the religion, recounted in her book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, that Kidman’s eldest daughters treat her with hostility. Remini says that when she asked Isabella if she’d seen Kidman recently, she responded: "Not if I have a choice. Our mother is a f---ing SP."
There were also opinions about Kidman kissing her co-star Alexander Skarsgard on the lips. As he headed to stage to accept is own Best Supporting Actor role in Big Little Lies, Kidman quickly kissed him. "Nicole kidman really kissed alexander skarsgard (her tv husband) on the mouth in front of her real husband lmao," one person summarized the situation via Twitter.
