Marion Cotillard couldn’t sleep. A virtual Oscar lock since last summer, when her unhinged turn as Edith Piaf in the musical biopic La Vie en Rose first dazzled American audiences, the wait for news of her Best Actress nomination came down to 90 agonizing minutes in the pre-dawn Los Angeles dark. Nothing feels like a sure thing at 4 a.m.

“I try always not to expect so much, so I would say that I was protecting myself,” Cotillard said this morning in an interview with VF.com. “For sure, a lot of people talked to me about this [back] in June. It’s been quite a long time. I’ve tried since then to just enjoy what was going on.”

Among those goings-on were critics’ awards, guild nominations, and her recent Best Actress win at the Golden Globes. Cotillard is gathered again with the usual 2007-season suspects in the Oscars’ Best Actress category. “I didn’t know Ellen Page before Juno, but I think she has something very special,” she said. “And Julie Christie and Laura Linney and Cate Blanchett. Cate Blanchett! I admire her so much. It’s just crazy. When I think about it, it’s just not real.”

So does she think the last six months prepared her for the sleepless Oscar grind to follow? “None of this is hard,” Cotillard said. “In this world there are people who live hard lives, and the month to come will not be hard at all. I really have things to enjoy. There’s no special preparation.” She paused, stifled a laugh. “Except I have to find a dress, of course.”
