Daniel Day-Lewis

Daniel Day-Lewis – who won a Leading Actor BAFTA last night – loves Marion Cotillard:

Out of the four, it was Cotillard’s that took most by surprise.

“It has been the most incredible adventure,” said the 32-year-old in an emotional speech. “I loved very single second.”

Collecting his prize, Daniel Day-Lewis paid his own tribute to the French star.
“Never mind all the other qualities in her astonishing performance,” he said. “For sheer balls alone, I feel Marion should have this award as well.”

BAFTA Picture & Video coverage

I’ve started adding pictures of Marion Cotillard at the BAFTA Awards and I’ve also come across 2 lovely interviews. One features a thrilled and over-joyed Marion facing the press after her win and the other is an interview together with Keira Knightley on the red carpet before the ceremony by Sky News. Thanks to KeiraWeb for that one.

If you have any additional videos and especially her acceptance speech please don’t hesitate to send it in! We’d all be soo thankful 🙂
