Nicole Kidman has won another award.
The actress won top honors at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday, for her portrayal of scientist Rosalind Franklin in Anna Ziegler’s “Photograph 51”.
Her performance has been universally praised, with the New York Times saying,
“When Nicole Kidman steps out of the shadows, breaking off from a wall of men, and onto the edge of the stage at the Noël Coward Theater, where Anna Ziegler’s ‘Photograph 51’ opened here on Monday night, her eyes beam undiluted willpower. It is a gaze that both chills and warms, radiating and demanding trust in this singularly self-possessed presence. Ms. Kidman makes it clear that she is in charge here, and woe unto those of us who doubt it.”
The Guardian said Kidman gave “a commanding, intelligent performance,” and the “only complaint about Anna Ziegler’s intriguing, informative 95-minute play is that it is not longer.”
