Earlier today the nominations for the 82nd Academy Awards (Oscars) were announced. Though Marion Cotillard herself was not nominated the song she performs in ‘Nine‘ was among the 5 nominated songs in the category Music (Original Song). Though this is mainly honoring songwriter Maury Yeston I like to think that Marion’s performance helped it to get nominated and just shows that she herself would have been nominated had she been campaigned as Supporting Actress instead of Leading Actress by The Weinstein Company.

Music (Original Song)
• “Almost There” from “The Princess and the Frog” Music and Lyric by Randy Newman
• “Down in New Orleans” from “The Princess and the Frog” Music and Lyric by Randy Newman
• “Loin de Paname” from “Paris 36” Music by Reinhardt Wagner Lyric by Frank Thomas
• “Take It All” from “Nine” Music and Lyric by Maury Yeston
• “The Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart)” from “Crazy Heart” Music and Lyric by Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett

Here’s Maury’s reaction to his nomination:

“I’m so grateful to Marion Cotillard for doing such a beautiful job with that song. It’s a very special honor to be singled out by the Academy and the world of film and my first foray into that world.”

Nine‘ was also nominated in the categories Actress in a Supporting Role (Penélope Cruz), Art Direction and Costume Design. Congratulations! See all Oscar Nominations here.

    Mia, do you have any more info on Marion covering the next issue of Another Magazine? Was it via their newsletter? I haven’t been able to find any information about it at all.

    @ Melfan

    Yeah, the clip was hilarious. Guillaume knows both Martin Scorcese and Leo, so it was all in jest 😆 Apparently Guillaume’s quote is taken from Scorcese’s film – Ragin Bull
