PARIS: Australian actress Nicole Kidman said she was "incredibly honoured" to have been nominated for an Academy Award for her role in the biographical drama "Lion", as the Oscar nominations were announced last night.
"The strangest thing is the older I get, the more exciting it gets," she said, as she arrived at the Theatre National de Chaillot to attend the Giorgio Armani Prive Haute Couture Summer 2017 fashion show.
"Lion" is based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, who was separated from his family at the age of five when he accidentally boarded the wrong train in rural India.
Kidman plays the role of Saroo's adoptive mother Sue Brierley, who brings him up in the southern island state of Tasmania.
Also nominated in the Supporting Actress category are actresses Viola Davis, Naomie Harris, Octavia Spencer, and Michelle Williams.
