The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards were on in L.A. on Monday 18 September and our very own Nicole Kidman was up for Most Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series for Big Little Lies... which she won. She gave a very emotional speech, thanking her family and shining the light on domestic violence. 

The show swept up on the night also winning Outstanding Supporting Actress, Laura Dern, Outstanding Supporting Actor, Alex Skarsgard, Outstanding Director for a Limited Series and also the big one - Best Limited Series overall.
