The star-studded cast and crew of “Nine” had plenty to celebrate at the glittery premiere held Tuesday, Dec. 15, in New York, for their flashy musical had just received five Golden Globe nominations that morning, and ten Critics’ Choice nods the day before. So what better way to enjoy the moment than to bring the family along for the fun?
Leading man Daniel Day-Lewis flew solo, as did his co-stars and fellow Globe nominees Marion Cotillard and Penelope Cruz. Nicole Kidman’s man, Keith Urban was in Australia playing a country concert, so she brought her best friend Naomi Watts along to see the show. Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson, who gives a sexy, sultry performance as an Italian prostitute in the story of famous Italian director Guido Contini and the women in his life, clutched her mother Terri Jackson on one arm and husband Josh Duhamel on the other.
Dame Judi Dench also has a key role in the movie, so she brought her daughter Finty Williams to check it out; and Kate Hudson, whose “Cinema Italiano” number is the most exciting moment in the film, closely hugged her mother, Oscar-winning actress Goldie Hawn.
Speaking of Hudson, Nicole Kidman said at an earlier press conference, “I came into the rehearsal room, and I saw Kate dancing like up a storm. And I went, ‘Wow that’s amazing!’ I can’t wait for people to see that part of her, and maybe she’ll do a Broadway show out of this because she so deserves it.”
Lots of other famous families attended the premiere to check out all the singing and dancing that the Oscar-nominated “Chicago” director Rob Marshall created in “Nine.” There was Madonna and daughter Lourdes Leon, twin sisters Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen, Djimon Hounsou and wife Kimora Lee Simmons, Tobey Maguire and wife Jennifer Meyer, and Donald Trump and wife Melania Knauss-Trump.
