Marion wins BAFTA!

This is such happy news! Marion Cotillard won Best Actress at tonight’s BAFTA Ceremony in London! Congratulations!

Marion won over fellow nominees Cate Blanchett, Julie Christie, Keira Knightley and Ellen Page. This is what Keira Knightley had to say on the red carpet before the ceremony:

I don’t know how many awards we are going to win but I’m so excited the film has 14 nominations. I’m not going to say I’m confident about winning (best actress) because there are some really amazing inspiring performances. Marion Cotillard is my hero at the moment. She’s amazing in La Vie En Rose.

The ceremony should be airing right now on BBC One in the UK – and is being aired over in the US on BBC America, not sure about the times, though. It will also be available for viewing online. Not being able to see it right now I’m guessing it will only be made available online after the TV airing.

From the Press Release:

La Vie en Rose received the highest number of wins with 4 BAFTAs. Marion Cotillard received the BAFTA for Leading Actress for La Vie en Rose for her portrayal of Edith Piaf. The film also won awards for Music, Make Up & Hair and Costume Design, presented posthumously to designer Marit Allen.
