Nicole Kidman is one of Hollywood’s most elegant and beautiful actresses and while in the past she has been nominated for – and won – Oscar awards, this year’s nomination kind of came out of nowhere. Nicole Kidman is nominated for Best Actress for her role in Rabbit Hole. It is her third nomination. She has previously won once and lost once.

Rabbit Hole tells the story of a very happily married couple whose life is flipped upside down and forever changed when their young son is hit by a car and killed.  Becca (Nicole Kidman) had given up her very successful career to be a stay at home mom and now she finds herself with nothing left. Not only has she lost a child she must now redefine who she is and what her life means. Becca develops a strange bond with the young man who drove the car that killed her son. While Becca is trying to find herself and search for meaning in her son’s death her husband, Howie (Aaron Eckhart) is trying to repair their marriage and encourage her to move on, maybe even have another baby. The movie is a powerful drama about a loving couple whose lives come unhinged during an unthinkable loss and how they deal with it.

Nicole Kidman was previously nominated for Oscars in 2003 For Best Actress in The Hours (she won this one) and 2002 for Best Actress in Moulin Rouge (she lost this on). Her nomination here is a little bit of a surprise if only because the movie itself has no other nominations. She deserves it and it is nice to see good work be rewarded, but I think the odds are very much stacked against her. This year Best Actress is one of the most competitive categories of the 2011 Oscars and the huge favorite is Natalie Portman. Portman has been taking home pretty much every award she has been nominated for this year for her role in Black Swan so it would be a huge upset if anyone but her won The Oscar for Best Actress.

Still, Nicole Kidman is very talented and this nomination does bring some notoriety to a good movie that has some great performances. Will She win Best Actress Oscar tonight?
