Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts won accolades on the red carpet at this year's Golden Globes, even before the awards were handed out today.

Kidman turned heads in a stunning black sleeveless Alexander McQueen creation - featuring gold studs around the shoulders and a sexy see-through black bodice falling into a long fitted skirt.

Kidman's hair was soft and flowing and shoulder length.

Husband Keith Urban, who was by her side, gave his wife's outfit "two thumbs-up".

But he admitted on the red carpet that when he first saw Kidman in the dress he said: "You look hot, you can't wear that."

Interviewed on the red carpet, Kidman said when a husband tells you that you look hot, you've got to wear it.

Kidman, who is currently filming the Grace Kelly biopic, said that while the late Monaco princess hadn't influenced her fashion, the role had made her more interested in fashion.

Compatriot and good friend Naomi Watts was also elegant in a high-necked, backless burgundy Zac Posen gown with long sleeves and a soft flowing organza train - with bling courtesy of Lorraine Schwartz.

Joined with hubby Liev Schreiber, Watts talked of her film The Impossible, which is about Indian Ocean tsunami drama, for which she received a Best Actress nomination.

"The film should affect people - if was the biggest natural disaster of our time."

She said filming was emotional because she and co-star Ewan McGregor shot the film in the actual locations where the story on which the film is based occurred.

"We stayed in the same hotels (as the family), we were always reminded of what went down in 2004."

Meanwhile Hugh Jackman, who sported a goatee, was joined on the red carpet by his wife Deborah Lee Furness who wore a classic black dress with an asymmetrical neckline.

Rather than commenting on their fashion choices, the couple talked about Jackman's recent success with his string of nominations for his role in Les Miserables.

"It's not too shabby," said Furness.
