Let it be said: Nicole Kidman made it through the 2017 Emmy Awards without any weird clapping moments. But, there was a little incident that made all viewers (or was that just us?) rewind the tape and ask: What exactly am I looking at? That's right: we're talking about the kiss.
When her on-screen husband Alexander Skarsgard won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role in Big Little Lies, Kidman planted a celebratory smooch on her real-life husband Keith Urban's lips. Then, she went ahead and kissed Skarsgard. And, um, that kiss was on the lips, too.
Our first thought: Who could blame her? (Have you seen Skarsgard?) But, the actress hasn't escaped some ribbing for the slightly uncomfortable double smooch. When Kidman appeared on The Graham Norton Show, the television host didn't waste any time in addressing the peck seen 'round the world.
Norton pulled up a picture of the Emmys moment, and Kidman declared, “You are so provocative, Graham.” She was quick to add, “I also kissed my husband, too.” But, really, how's here it all went down — in Kidman's adorably awkward words:
“I did kiss [Skarsgard], but you've got to understand, I did everything with Alex. I’ve got an amazing, supportive husband who I love more than anything in the world, and I gave Alex a congratulatory kiss, and he’s like a mannequin. I mean, not a mannequin. I’m done.”
Well, that cleared things up.
