Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman and Margot Robbie lead the charge for the 2018 Golden Globes nominations

They're flying the Aussie flag!

By Bella Brennan
The 2018 Golden Globe nominations have been announced and there's a slew of Australian talent dominating the 75th Golden Globe Awards.
Nicole Kidman's powerful portrayal as Celeste in HBO's Big Little Lies, which has just been confirmed for a second season, has landed her the Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a mini-series or TV movie nomination.
Causing even more reason to celebrate Big Little Lies and Top of the Lake: China Girl - with both series boasting Nic's name - are up for the best television limited series or motion picture made for television.
Nic's proud husband Keith Urban took to social media to praise his wife's accomplishments, writing on Twitter: "Hey baby- CONGRATULATIONS on all the GLOBES love this morn!!!!!! Incredibly proud of you, the work, and all the BLL and TOTL team. THE STARS ALIGNED!!! xxxxxx - KU #GoldenGlobes."
Meanwhile the mother-of-four said she was stoked with the news.
"Beyond excited, honored, and thankful to be nominated and in such good company! Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press Association for recognising Big Little Lies and Top of the Lake: China Girl. Xx Nic," she wrote on Facebook.
Nic's bestie Hugh Jackman's latest musical offering The Greatest Showman has landed him a nomination for best actor in a musical or comedy and the 49-year-old is pinching himself!
"Over 7 years ago we began the journey to get @GreatestShowman made into a major motion picture. Through all of the (literal) blood, sweat and tears .... giving up was never an option. As it is said - with great risk comes great reward. Thank you #HFPA! @goldenglobes," Hugh penned in a heartfelt reaction.
Homegrown hero Margot Robbie has also walked away with a nomination for best actress in a musical or comedy motion picture for her much-hyped role as controversial ice skating identity Tonya Harding in I, Tonya.
Reacting to the nomination, the 27-year-old took to Instagram to express her excitement.
"Cheers to the HFPA for giving us something to celebrate this morning! THANK YOU #itonya #goldenglobes."
The Golden Globes honour the best talent in film and TV and kick off the 2018 award season on January 7th next year at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
They are considered the precursor to the Academy Awards.
