OSCAR HOPEFUL: Nicole Kidman won’t be the only Nicole with butterflies in her stomach at the Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday night. Designer Nicole Farhi, who’s married to Sir David Hare, plans to accompany her husband to the Kodak Theater — and she’s already steeling herself for the event. "I know it’s going to be a tense night — and I don’t know how much fun it’s going to be," Farhi said. "When we were at the Golden Globes, David kept saying, ‘We’re not going to win, we’re going to lose’ — and then the film won," Farhi said. Hare, the prolific English screenwriter and playwright, has been nominated for best-adapted screenplay for "The Hours." Not surprisingly, his wife will be dressing herself for the red carpet. Farhi says she plans to don the navy blue tulle dress that was featured in her latest fall runway show.
