Thanking her mother, Janelle Kidman, for her sacrifices, as well as visionary director Vallée, Kidman noted her Big Little Lies character's relevance when it comes to the ongoing conversation in Hollywood surrounding sexual assault and harassment. "This character that I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now: abuse", she continued. Kidman's win tonight follows up her win at last year's Emmys, for the same role in Jean-Marc Vallée's critically acclaimed HBO series.

"We are in a position now to elicit change and we can do it all together", Kidman told reporters on the red carpet at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts global awards in Hollywood on Friday. "My mama was an advocate for the women's movement when I was growing up, and because of her, I'm standing here", she said. "My achievements are her achievements".

"I urge all of us not only to support survivors and bystanders who are fearless enough to tell their truth, but to promote restorative justice". They also split their film awards into different categories based on genre.

In addition to Kidman and Witherspoon's noms, Big Little Lies scored four others tonight-for Best Limited Series, and for the performances of Skarsgård, Woodley and Dern-following up on the show's outsized success at the Emmys, where it won eight awards.

In an upset, Sam Rockwell picked up a best supporting actor statue for his work as a racist cop in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Host Seth Meyers wasted no time addressing the harassment scandal that has subsumed Hollywood.

He added: "It's 2018 and marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't, it's going to be a good year".

Franco also thanked his brother Dave, saying he had always wanted to have his own version of film-making brothers the Coens, but now realised he had "my own Franco brother".
