Nicole Kidman Fails to Mention Irrelevant Kids With Tom Cruise in Emmys Speech

The Emmys were last night. I didn’t watch because 90 Day Fiance was on and it’s the greatest reality show on television. It should have won all the Emmys.

Nicole Kidman ended up winning the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in Limited Series or Movie for her role in Big Little Lies. In her speech, Kidman did that thing where she thanked her family for supporting her.

“I have a huge artistic family who supported me throughout all my ups and downs. You have been so loyal to me throughout my whole life. Thank you for that. I have two little girls, Sunnie and Faith, and my darling Keith, who I asked to help me pursue this artistic path. And they have sacrificed so much for it. So this is yours. I want my two little girls to have this on their shelf and to look at it and go, ‘Every time my momma didn’t put me to bed it’s because of this.”

Nothing wrong with that, right? WRONG! This is 2017 and everything is wrong and nothing is beautiful. While most thought Kidman’s speech was fine and cliched, others were upset that Kidman didn’t mention Isabella and Connor, the two kids Nicole adopted with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

This is the dumbest criticism ever. First off, Nicole probably isn’t allowed to talk about the kids because of some clause in her divorce. If Tom Cruise ensured that Katie Holmes couldn’t publicly date Jamie Foxx for five years, I guarantee he put some clause in there that says, “you can never mention our kids should you ever win an Emmy, Oscar, Tony, or Globe.” Tom Cruise is nuts, ok.

But, more realistically, it’s all about context. Sunnie, 9, and Faith, 6, are still young and live at home with Keith and Nicole. They probably missed their mom while she was out filming this show and Keith had to be the one to take care of them. That’s why she thanked those three for their sacrifices.

Connor, 22, and Isabella, 24, have their own lives and don’t need to be tucked in by mom every night.

So, instead of getting outraged for the sake of getting outraged, let’s all just take a step back, stop watching award shows altogether, and watch more 90 Day Fiance.
