Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman, Rachel Weisz and Timothée Chalamet will be honored next month at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Kidman, a multi-award-winning actress known for her fearlessness and intelligence, will receive the Hollywood Career Achievement Award during the ceremony.

Her selection for this award is a tribute to the versatility of her performances over the years, with characters as diverse and extraordinary as an aspiring television personality with a dark motive in Gus Van Zant’s “To Die For”;  the iconic and complicated Virginia Woolf in her Oscar-winning role in “The Hours”; a wife who, with her husband, embarks on an odyssey of sexual and moral discovery in “Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut”; Satine, the singing and dancing courtesan in Baz Luhrmann’s “Moulin Rouge!”; the unguarded adoptive mother of an orphan boy longing to help others in need in Garth Davis’ “Lion”; and a woman on the run who pays a huge price to be hidden in Lars von Triers’ controversial and thrilling “Dogville.”

With three films coming out before the end of this year, Kidman has already received praise for her transformative performances in Karyn Kusama’s “Destroyer” and in Joel Edgerton’s “Boy Erased.”

In addition to her chameleonic performances, Kidman is being recognized for her career-long support of independent filmmakers, particularly women.  Through her production company, Blossom Films, she has produced many projects, including last year’s “Big Little Lies,” which was a phenomenon that entered not only the cultural, but the social zeitgeist.

Rachel Weisz in “The Favourite”

Weisz and Chalamet will receive the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award and Hollywood Supporting Actor Award, respectively, at the Hollywood Film Awards.

An Academy Award winner, Weisz (“The Constant Gardener,” “The Mummy”) will be recognized for her role in Fox Searchlight’s “The Favourite,” a festival breakout. Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Favourite,” also starring Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Nicholas Hoult, premiered to rave reviews at the 2018 Venice Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival and New York Film Festival and will be released by Fox Searchlight on Nov. 23. She recently produced and starred in Sebastián Lelio’s “Disobedience” alongside Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola. The film, which is based on the novel by Naomi Alderman, premiered at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews, was released by Bleecker Street in April, and releases in the UK on Nov. 30.

Chalamet (“Call Me By Your Name,” “Lady Bird”) will be honored for his for his critically lauded portrayal of Nic Sheff in Amazon Studios’ “Beautiful Boy,” directed Felix Van Groeningen, in select theaters this month. “Beautiful Boy,” based on the memoir “Beautiful Boy” by David Sheff and the book “Tweak” by his son Nic Sheff, chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring story of survival and recovery in a family coping with addiction.

Also, Chalamet is currently filming “Little Women” with director Greta Gerwig and this spring will star in “Dune,” directed by Denis Villeneuve. Chalamet recently wrapped production on “The King” which will be released in 2019.
