"Grace of Monaco" made a dramatic Hollywood comeback when Emmy nominations were announced on July 16. To the surprise of most pundits, it earned a nomination for Best TV Movie. The film stars Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly during the time when Kelly was the princess of Monaco and her husband, Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth), was in conflict with French president Charles de Gaulle (André Penvern). -Break- 'Secret Life of Marilyn' & 'Grace of Monaco': Emmys for portraying showbiz legends? Originally intended for theatrical release, the film never made it to theaters. The production was troubled by criticisms from Kelly's children, a behind-the-scenes battle for final cut and a chilly reception at the Cannes Film Festival where it premiered in 2014. But despite being written off by almost everybody, Lifetime took a chance on it and aired it on May 25, just in time to make it eligible at the Emmys.
