A boy from a remote village finds himself, by accident, alone and lost in the streets of Calcutta – and, from there, in a comfortable home in Tasmania, adopted by loving Australian parents. In Lion, the cinematic version of this real life story, Nicole Kidman plays Sue Brierley, the boy’s devoted adoptive mother – and her first Australian character in a long while. "Sue is like so many of my mom’s friends, and so it was my way of connecting back to my country”, she told us. “I wanted to make it for (my children), because I think the message (of the film) is unconditional love.” This is Nicole’s 11th nomination. She won twice in the Best Actress-Comedy or Musical category – in 1996 for To Die For, in 2002 for Moulin  Rouge!- and once as Best Actress-Drama, in 2003 for The Hours.
