Australian stunner Nicole Kidman says she is still looking for a date to take her to the Oscars later this month.
The 34-year-old actress was escorted by her father to the Golden Globes awards ceremony in January.
She is also often seen at awards ceremonies with her Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann but said he would not be her Oscar date.
Asked who she would be taking to the Oscar show, she said today: ‘‘Not Baz but I don’t really have anybody to bring at the moment. I’m looking.’’
Kidman - wearing a short tiered gold dress - was speaking as she and her follow nominees gathered at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles for the annual pre-Oscars lunch.
She is nominated for a best actress Oscar for her role as the Parisian courtesan Santine in the musical Moulin Rouge.
Kidman said she was thrilled to be nominated for Moulin Rouge.
She said she was filming on the day the nominations came out and some cast members held up a sign telling her she was nominated in the best actress category.
But Kidman - who many thought may have received an Oscar nomination for her role in supernatural thriller The Others - wasn’t sure which film she had been shortlisted for.
She said: ‘‘I said, ‘What film?’ and I was thrilled that it was Moulin Rouge because my relationship with Baz and with Ewan and with that movie was such a long part of my life.
‘‘I felt I didn’t want to let Baz down. I felt he would be sad and very disappointed if I didn’t pull through.’’
Kidman is competing against Sissy Spacek (In The Bedroom), Halle Berry (Monster’s Ball, Renee Zellweger (Bridgit Jones’ Diary) and Britain’s Dame Judi Dench (Iris) for the coveted award.
