The big winners at the awards show have been unveiled.
The season for the Emmy Awards has finally come around again, with 'The Handmaid's Tale' and 'Big Little Lies' leading the winners, Stephen Colbert cracking Trump jokes and Nicole Kidman opening up on the important issue of domestic violence in her acceptance speech.

'The Handmaid's Tale' landed eight gongs altogether last night (September 17th 2017) including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Directing, Writing, Production Design and Cinematography, with Elisabeth Moss getting Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series as Offred, and Ann Dowd and Alexis Bledel as Outstanding Supporting Actress and Guest Actress respectively.
There are ideas for a second season, but nothing has yet been set in stone.
HBO's limited series 'Big Little Lies' - adapted from the book of the same name - proved to be an incredible success for the television network. Bringing a group of hugely different women together, one of which was played by Nicole Kidman, the show flipped the traditional murder mystery shows on their head and told a story like none we'd ever seen before.

When the show came to its close, the mystery came full circle for everybody watching, with the characters we'd all grown extremely close to left to live with the consequences. Fans could only imagine what would happen to each of them; this was after all a limited series and a release only intended to last a single season.

She's not sure how to feel about her latest photoshoot.
We can hardly believe that Nicole Kidman is 50-years-old, but she's still very much the Hollywood glamour queen she's always been. She proved it with a sexy magazine shoot recently, though she's feeling a little embarrassed about how much flesh she was flashing in the images.

If anything is certain, it's that Nicole has absolutely nothing to feel embarrassed about. Her photos with Love magazine are stunning to say the least. They show her strutting around in a red one-piece bathing suit with a cowboy hat and fur jacket, as well as another western style look featuring the same hat, a pair of chaps and a cropped white T-shirt.

In her inimitable loose style, Sofia Coppola remakes the 1971 Clint Eastwood movie from a distinctly feminine perspective. Like her other films, this feels loose and sometimes aimless, demanding that the audience find their own way through the story. It's also a remarkably effective gothic thriller, darkly playing on the vulnerability and innate power of women.
It's set in 1864 Virginia, where the residents of an isolated girls school can hear the Civil War raging in the distance. Teachers Martha and Edwina (Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst) and students Alicia, Jane, Amy, Marie and Emily (Elle Fanning, Angourie Rice, Oona Laurence, Addison Riecke and Emma Howard) have just been getting on with their education in their cocoon-like plantation. Then Amy discovers wounded Union soldier John (Colin Farrell) in the woods. With their own male relatives dead or missing in the war, all of these women are fascinated by this man, an enemy who needs their help. So each begins flirting with him in her own way. But as John considers staying on as a handyman, he's unaware of the jealousies he is igniting around him.
The actors give provocative, layered performances, subtly revealing their internal desires as they interact in unexpected ways. Kidman is the focal point as the stern Martha, trying to remain stoic and in control even as she feels lust for this interloper. Dunst's Edwina is more openly romantic in her approach, while Fanning's Alicia is old enough to desire him in unfamiliar ways. The younger four girls stay mainly on the sideline, even as they add their own layers of intrigue. And Farrell is terrific as the brooding, swarthy man who's unaware of the passions he's stirring up. Where this goes is creepy and intense, as John seems to think that he can pick whichever woman he likes. But he's badly underestimating them.
