Nicole Kidman is receiving a new milestone. The American Film Institute’s Board of Trustees announced that it will present Kidman with the institute’s Life Achievement Award, which it described as “the highest honour for a career in film.”

Kidman, who most recently starred in April’s The Northman, will receive the award at a gala tribute at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre on Saturday, June 10, 2023. The actress is the 49th person ever to receive a Life Achievement Award from AFI and the first Australian actor ever to receive the honour, as stated in the press release.

The chair of the AFI Board of Trustees, Kathleen Kennedy, said in a statement, “Nicole Kidman has enchanted audiences for decades with the daring of her artistry and the glamour of a screen icon.” “She is a force both brave in her choices and bold in each performance,” Kennedy added. “AFI is honoured to present her with the 49th AFI Life Achievement Award.”

Kidman, who has been nominated for five Academy Awards and won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2003 for her performance in The Hours, has also won a BAFTA Award, two Emmys and six Golden Globes in her nearly four decades-long careers.
