Alexander Skarsgård was part of a show-stopping moment at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, and it happened before he even got to the podium to accept a trophy for his win.
As News.com.au reports, fans went wild when, as Skarsgård made his way to the stage after he won the Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Award for his role in “Big Little Lies,” his TV wife, Nicole Kidman, locked lips with him, while her real-life husband, Keith Urban, stood by her side.
The kiss on the lips was a shocker for many, and the Twitter responses prove it:

Only Alexander Skarsgård can kiss a lady on the mouth in front of her husband and get away with it #Emmys

Some don’t blame Kidman for skipping the cheek and going right to Skarsgård’s mouth — even with her loving husband watching:
TBH if I was Nicole Kidman I’d kiss Alexander Skarsgard on the lips in front of my husband, too. #emmys
