Nicole Kidman named Best Film Actress

Nicole Kidman was named Best Film Actress at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London on Tuesday (06.06.17)

The Australian star – who was on hand to collect her prize at Berkeley Square Gardens, following her acclaimed performances in ‘Big Little Lies’ and ‘Lion’ – took the opportunity to remind actresses that age shouldn’t restrict their career ambitions.

During her acceptance speech, the 49-year-old star said: “I want to tell all the women out there – it is not over at 40. It is not even over at 50.”

Nicole has recently enjoyed a career resurgence and the actress admitted that the award represented an early birthday present, which she will officially celebrate on June 20.

She said: “I’m going to take this as a birthday present – I’m about to turn 50 in two weeks, and I never thought this would be one of my best years.”

Meanwhile, British pop group Little Mix won the Music Act award, while singer-songwriter Dua Lipa was given the Next Breakthrough gong.

TV host James Corden – who has returned to London for a week-long residency of ‘The Late Late Show’ – was named the Man Of The Year.

James’ award comes shortly after he admitted to feeling like a “tourist” on his return to the UK capital from Los Angeles.

Speaking shortly after the recent terrorist attack in London, the 38-year-old star said: “I’ve felt like a tourist drinking it all in.

It’s such a wonderful place to be and we’re going to try to celebrate that as much as we can, and provide people with a bit of light and levity throughout everything that has been going on in the news, politically, here right now.”
