Kidman's co-star Alexander Skarsgard took the award for best TV supporting actor for his role as the abusive husband Perry Wright and made sure to thank his "extraordinary, talented" female co-stars.

Kidman also took to honor her mother, Janelle Ann Kidman, for empowering her at an early age. "I speak on behalf of the five of us because we would not be in existence with this show and it wouldn't be as good", she said, referring to their help.

"May we teach our children that speaking out without the fear of retributions is our culture's new north star".
