Nicole Kidman has been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild award for her role as Princess Grace in the 2014 TV movie Grace Of Monaco, even though the production was widely seen as a complete disaster. The 48-year-old Australian actress was nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie category…
Also nominated in that category were Queen Latifah for Bessie, Christina Ricci for The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, Susan Sarandon for The Secret Life Of Marilyn Monroe and Kristen Wiig for The Spoils Before Dying.
Kidman’s film was so troubled it went from feature film that had Oscar hopes to a Lifetime movie that did poorly in the ratings. When the movie was screened in Cannes in 2014, it was booed.
In May 2014 Kidman responded to criticism from the Princely family by talking to DailyMail.com: “I know they’re upset. I would be too if it were my mother. It’s a child’s job to protect their parent. In that regard, I get it. I get why the children are upset. I can’t say much other than that I have great respect and regard for their mother.”
BuzzFeed called Nicole’s performance ‘ridiculous and a touch offensive.’ The New York Times added: ‘Nicole works so hard to re-create the movie star’s voice, mien and magic that the distance is only magnified.’ The critic then went on to note that while Kelly was ‘fire and ice,’ Kidman is mostly ‘ice.’
Tuesday marks the next phase in the easing of restrictions in France, offering people a glimmer of hope for summer.
The oral exam for the baccalaureate in Monaco is cancelled this academic year and third trimester will not count towards final results, in line with a decision by France’s education department.
Since the strictest of the lockdown rules were lifted in early May, the Grimaldi Forum team has been hard at work to make the venue a safe and welcoming place for the public when events start back in autumn.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
