Nicole Kidman

Nomination: Best Actress for Rabbit Hole

Nicole Kidman started filming Rabbit Hole (which she also produced), about a couple grappling with their young son's death, just a year after giving birth to her daughter Sunday Rose. "There were times when I woke in the middle of the night, and I was having nightmares," she told MTV News. "That's when I know when something's really seeped into my subconscious." Her role as a pragmatic mom trying to move on is one of the most soulful performances Kidman has given in years: She's haunting without being melodramatic.
