30% of voters were wrong!

OSCARS 2011: Shorty attended the big night as the dutiful husband.
This time the two were composed, and did not stare into each others eyes lovingly.
Thank you for that Mr and Mrs Kurban. 
In our latest poll, 30% of readers said Kidman would win the Oscar for best actress in Rabbit Hole. The 2011 Oscars have rolled out now ... and Kidman didn't win. Congratulations to Natalie Portman.

Some would say Kidman didn't even deserve to be nominated, but that's the way campaigns go. Money speaks volumes. We're not saying Natalie Portman should have won either, but ALOT of money was spent on the Black Swan Oscar campaign. To be honest, Black Swan is an over-rated film and one that will not be added to this DVD library anytime soon.

Back to Nicole. What is next for a lady so desperate for attention? Do you think she will be satisfied to sit at home and play Mum to new baby Faith Margaret? Think again, folks.

Nicole is due to 'perform' in the Broadway version of "Sweet Old Bird of Youth", this year alongside the delicious James Franco  Not sure if it is a wise career choice for Franco to be connected with Kidman, but stranger things have happened. Kidman also has MORE film premieres to attend with the release of the thriller  Trespass with Nicolas Cage. She likes the red carpet treatment.

So there you have it. The darling Oscars are over for another year. Do you think Natalie Portman deserved to win the best actress Oscar? Our vote actually went to Annette Benning, in case you were wondering.

I felt so much love for the surrogate

LEFT: On their honeymoon in 2006, long before the kids arrived
RIGHT: With Sunday, the child Nicole carried without any surrogate help
Nicole Kidman was interviewed on Australia's Sixty Minutes tonight. The birth of Faith Margaret to a surrogate (rumoured to be her personal assistant), is an experience Kidman refers to as  "deeply emotional, moving."

"Having given birth and then being there to see my child born in that way, I felt so much love for our surrogate, gestational carrier," said Kidman.

Kidman also explained why she uses the term 'gestational carrier' as opposed to 'surrogate' - something she was criticised for in the days following the announcement of baby Faith's birth.

"We were trying to be accurate," she shares. "The term 'gestational carrier' is used if it's your biological child and if it isn't, then you use 'surrogate.'  

Perhaps the real reason she used the term 'gestational carrier' is to make sure people believe  her own 43 year old eggs were used. Not for a minute does she want you to believe otherwise. I mean, does it really matter? She should love the baby regardless of whether it is biologically hers or not.

Opening up about her roller-coaster ride with fertility, Kidman reveals, "Anyone that's been in the place of wanting a child knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss you go through. Struggling with fertility is such a big thing and it's not something that I would run away from talking about. We were in a place of desperately wanting another child and I couldn't get pregnant," she says tearfully. "I get emotional just talking about it, because I'm so grateful."

Wonderful that the surrogate was able to help  .... again?

GROUP HUG: We are such good friends, and share surgery secrets
Keith's hair extensions came too

The PR assistant must be too busy looking after Faith Margaret to check Nicole's wardrobe! The 43 year old famewhore, who claims she no longer uses botox attended the premiere of JUST GO WITH IT in New York this week.  Never one to miss out on a photo opportunity, Nicole turned up in a leather skirt and leather jacket, plus her hair extensions. The face looked remarkably tight for someone who no longer uses botox.

What really took the cake was the forced hug by the three ladies who are all in the film, including Jennifer Aniston. Interestingly, Kidman has only a cameo in the comedy so probably didn't need to attend at all ... right? It's all too much really, isn't it?
