"The character I played represents something that is the centre of our conversation right now — abuse," Kidman said during her acceptance speech for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television, for her role in Big Little Lies.

"I do believe and I hope we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them. Let's keep the conversation alive, let's do it."

The 27-year-old actor, who is nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in I, Tonya, wore a black Gucci dress.

"Being a woman in Hollywood means you will probably have to fight through degrading situations and will be offered chauvinistic roles by men who think that that's all anybody wants to see us play," Robbie wrote in a letter to her industry published last month.

"But even those of us lucky enough to have established a career in the hallowed grounds of show business are still in the shadows of the big trees, constantly reminded that we only grow in the sunshine they allow us."

The Greatest Showman star and his actor-producer wife both donned black for the event.

“I just have unbelievable empathy and am so inspired by all of the people coming out,” Jackman said last month of the revelations of sexual harassment and assault in his industry.

“I think the amount of shame and guilt that is attached to this entire subject and the amount of courage it takes to step forward is humbling to me."
