Kidman took home the award in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television category for her portrayal of abused housewife Celeste Wright in "Big Little Lies". Of the 11 television shows and performers that won Globes Sunday night, seven won Emmys a year ago.
The evening's award marked the fourth Golden Globe for Kidman.
The actress also praised the movement, and the women who began coming forward last fall with revelations of sexual harassment and misconduct began speaking out.
Also dressed in black, she said: "Many of us were taught not to tattle, it was a culture of silencing and it was normalised". In October, she gave a statement to People defining her thoughts on the wave of abuse allegations rocking Hollywood: "As I've stated before publicly, I support and applaud all women and these women who speak out against any abuse and misuse of power - be it domestic violence or sexual harassment in the workforce".
The Australian actress started by confessing her love and respect for her co-star and friend Reese Witherspoon.
"Big Little Lies" cleaned up at the Emmys, asserting HBO's continued dominance in prestige television. It's fitting that "The Handmaid's Tale" was front-and-center during the show. Creator David E. Kelley is also returning to write and produce the new episodes. Maisel come following the regime shakeup at Amazon Studios, which saw the two top executives, Roy Price and Joe Lewis, exit in quick succession in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. "Every check cleared. We could not have found a better partner".
Despite his 2016 Emmy, Ansari seemed surprised to pick up the Globe for his role in Netflix's "Master of None" - or maybe that's further evidence that he's a good actor.
That series, based on the Margaret Atwood novel by the same title, landed three Golden Globes nominations.
"My mamma was an advocate for the women's movement when I was growing up and because of her, I'm standing here", she said. An eighth victor, Aziz Ansari, won an Emmy in 2016.
