“I feel like I would be a terrible director because I always have so many ideas. A director has to make choices, and that’s not my strong suit,” Kidman told The Hollywood Reporter on the AFI red carpet. She emphasized that her interests align more with the responsibilities of a producer. “I’m very good at being passionate and supporting the voices and reading a script and going, ‘I love this script,’ or seeing somebody and going, ‘I love this actor, I love this director, how do I support them?’ And they maybe have done nothing [before], but I want to get behind them. That’s what I love doing; it excites me, and it really makes me happy. I love shining the light on other people or helping to do that.”

Through her production company, Blossom Films, Kidman has produced a variety of projects including Big Little Lies, Nine Perfect Strangers, The Undoing, Love & Death, Special Ops: Lioness, and Expats.

During the ceremony, Kidman reiterated her commitment to supporting emerging talent, stating, “There’s so many more exciting young directors and voices that are completely original and need to be heard, and they have a lot to say. We need to give them a chance to say it and to hear them, and I am here, I am ready to roll up my sleeves. I am here always to support those voices.” She also individually thanked all of her previous directors during her acceptance speech.

The event was attended by Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Morgan Freeman, Naomi Watts, Zoe Saldaña, Aaron Sorkin, Zac Efron, Miles Teller, Joey King, Mike Myers, and her husband Keith Urban, all of whom came to honor Kidman. Reflecting on receiving a life achievement award at 56, Kidman commented, “When they told me that Meryl got it at around the same time I was like, ‘OK, that’s OK, that’s cool.’ But at the same time you just go, I’ll take whatever you give me because in terms of the work, I just love doing the work.”
