    Marion Cotillard: Ellen Page In Juno Was ‘Amazing’

    Both La Vie En Rose’s Marion Cotillard and Juno’s Ellen Page received the news today that they were both nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award.

    It was a first for both of the talented thespians.

    “I couldn’t believe this, to be amongst these incredible beautiful stunning actresses I admire so much,” exclaimed Ms. Cotillard to People.

    “I just discovered Ellen Page. I saw Juno a few weeks ago. I think she’s amazing, so to be with those actresses is something really unbelievable and special.”

    In an analogy that could be lost somewhat in translation, the La Vie En Rose star explained that “it’s as if I had swallowed some fireworks or something like this. My friends and my family in Paris, they are so happy.”

    If Page wins the Oscar on February 24, she will be the youngest winner ever for Best Actress. Marlee Matlin is currently the youngest at 21 years old, but the Juno star is only 20 and has her beat by a few months.
