This year's Best Actress race to the Oscars is a decidedly royal affair. Nicole Kidman is gunning for her second golden statue this Christmas season as the titular Princess and famed screen siren in "Grace of Monaco." Hot on her heels is two-time Oscar nominee, and fellow Aussie, Naomi Watts, with her anticipated take on another Princess in the royal biopic "Diana," directed by Olivier Hirschbiegel ("Downfall").

This year's Best Actress race to the Oscars is a decidedly royal affair. Nicole Kidman is gunning for her second golden statue this Christmas season as the titular princess and famed screen siren in "Grace of Monaco." Hot on her heels is two-time Oscar nominee, and fellow Aussie, Naomi Watts, with her anticipated take on another Princess in the royal biopic "Diana," directed by Olivier Hirschbiegel ("Downfall").

Indiewire got a juicy five-minute glimpse of Kidman as Grace Kelly at Cannes. While that footage has yet to surface online, a trailer for "Diana" did this morning. Clocking in at just one-minute long, the teaser doesn't feature a single line of dialogue, relying instead on Watts' eery resemblance to the late Princess of Wales to reel you in. Let us know if the approach works in the comment section below.

Boasting a script by Steven Jeffreys ("The Libertine"), the biopic centers on Diana's affair with Dr. Hasnat Kahn (Naveen Andrews) that lasted from 1995 until a few months before her death in 1997.
