That’s how Marion Cotillard plans to celebrate her Golden Globe nomination. “I am really enjoying every minute and second of it!”

Cotillard is on the phone with me from Paris, where she says she didn’t find out she was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy (for her remarkable turn as the late Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose) until two hours after it was announced.

“It was not the morning here for me,” Cotillard says of the official announcement that took place at about 5:30 a.m. PST. “The announcement was like 2 p.m. here, so I was in the middle of something at my friend’s house. I listened to my voicemail, and my agent had left me a message like an hour before!”

The news is even sweeter for the 32-year-old first-time nominee, because she is “a French actress, and this is a French movie.”

No doubt Cotillard will be wearing a dress from one of her favorites—Jean-Paul Gaultier and Chanel are at the top of her list—on the red carpet. “I don’t know yet, because I didn’t want to think about this before today,” she says. “I’m sure by tomorrow we’ll be working on this.”

Cotillard’s competition includes Amy Adams (Enchanted), Nikki Blonsky (Hairspray), Helena Bonham Carter (Sweeney Todd) and Ellen Page (Juno).

So, what does she think Piaf would make of all this?

“She would laugh,” Cotillard says. “She was laughing all the time.”
