Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard will be honored at the Lumieres Awards, France’s equivalent to the Golden Globes.
The academy of the Lumieres Awards, which is composed of Paris-based members of the foreign press, will pay tribute and hand out honorary awards to Cotillard and Fremaux during the 22nd edition of the ceremony Jan. 30.
Since winning an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a Cesar and a Bafta for her role as Edith Piaf in “La vie en rose,” Cotillard has worked with some of the world’s most talented and acclaimed directors, from Michael Mann (“Public Enemies”) to Woody Allen (“Midnight in Paris”), Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “Dark Night Rises”), Steven Soderbergh (“Contagion”), James Gray (“The Immigrant”) and Robert Zemeckis (“Allied”). Cotillard also starred in the Dardenne brothers’s “Two Days, One Night” and Xavier Dolan’s “It’s Only the End of World.”
In France, Cotillard has worked with Jacques Audiard (“Rust and Bones”); Guillaume Canet, whose next film “Rock & Roll” will soon come out in France; and, most recently, with Arnaud Desplechin for his upcoming film “Ismael’s Ghosts.”
On top of receiving the honorary prize, Cotillard is also selected for a best actress Lumiere award for her performance in Nicole Garcia’s “From the Land of the Moon.”
