Whether or not a star as rarified as Nicole Kidman pays any attention to something as common as social media, she apparently got the message that Twitter has feverishly wondered why she failed to mention her two older children with Tom Cruise when she accepted acting honors at the Emmys in September and at the Golden Globes Sunday night.
Kidman has been the awards-season darling for her performance as a laywer-turned-abused-wife-and-mom in the acclaimed HBO limited series “Big Little Lies.” But the actress has also caused a stir when she’s failed to include Connor and Isabella Cruise in the family members she has chosen to thank.

On Thursday night at the Critics Choice Awards, Kidman finally seemed to rectify that situation with an oblique reference to Connor and Isabella, the Washington Post reported.
In her speech, she said “I want to thank all of my children, who show me so much love.”
