Independent Spirit Awards Nomination

The nominations for the Film Independent Spirit Awards were announced today and Marion landed a nomination in the Best Actress category for her role in The Immigrant! An unexpected but exciting event since this means she is in the minds of critics for both The Immigrant and Two Days, One Night.

Three of the best actress noms went to films that received a single nomination — Julianne Moore for “Still Alice,” Jenny Slate for “Obvious Child” and Tilda Swinton for “Only Lovers Left Alive.” Also selected were Marion Cotillard for “The Immigrant” and Rinko Kikuchi for “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter.”

  1. Oh my God, I’m so damn happy! I’m super happy about watching the greatest actress of all time, the one and only Marion Cotillard being nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for her insuperable performance as Ewa Cyluska in The Immigrant! It fills me with joy and excitement. She should sweep all the awards with her immensely powerful and hauntingly beautiful work in Gray’s film. Any list of Best Actress contenders would look empty without the incomparable Marion Cotillard of either The Immigrant or Two Days, One Night in the lead. Both performances should be considered among the 10 greatest performances ever put on film. She gave the absolute best (Two Days, One Night) and the absolute second best female performance (The Immigrant) at the same year. I’ll be more than thrilled to watch her win a second Oscar for either. I’m also extremely excited (not to sound mean) about watching Reese Witherspoon being snubbed for Wild. Having seen the film in a screening, I must say that her work there, whille really good, is far from Oscar-worthy. Watching her being snubbed in favor of sublime work (and truly Oscar-worthy work) by actresses as talented as Tilda Swinton for her exceptional performance in Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive (I’m sure obviously there’s not a chance she’s going to be acknowledged for her tremendous turn from the Oscars though), I’m over the moon. Bringing groundbreaking talents for towering work in front and snubbing Oscar vehicle turns by limited actors always feels great!

  2. I’m so happy for this! it’s great to see that her performance in The Immigrant won’t be totally ignored in this awards season.
    Now I hope she gets an Oscar nomination for Two Days, One Night!
