Making Headlines – Part 2
Regarding the title… I only have Marion Cotillard’s recent wins at the César and Academy Awards ceremonies in mind. Here the promised scans – most of them are of publications that feature Marion Cotillard’s name if not also her picture on the cover: Elle (March 3), Le Figaro Magazine (March 1), France Dimanche (February 29), Point de Vue (February 27), and Los Angeles Times (February 25).
Mariana sent in a scan of British Night & Day of Marion’s BAFTA win – and I’ve added some other miscellanous scans as well to the Clippings album.
Thanks to Mimi we also have scans of VSD. Many thanks! The article reports that Marion apparently declined a publicity contract for a famous cosmetics brand – because it is on Greenpeace’s black list.
80th Academy Awards Coverage – Part 4
Ok, I’ve finished sorting and resizing all the remaining pictures from the Oscars and the after parties. Many thanks to the always wonderful Mariana for some of the pictures. Enjoy!

Making Headlines – Part 1
Obviously, Marion Cotillard’s Best Actress win at the Oscars is making headlines throughout the world. I’ve now added scans of the most recent issues of Vanity Fair Germany and Paris Match – both feature Marion on the cover. The latter also features an interesting interview with Marion’s dad: Jean-Claude Cotillard (see scan #11).
Remember that although the scans are tagged I am happy to see a link back to this site here should you decide to post them in e.g. a messageboard. I have come across a number of my scans – especially rare ones such as the Japanese magazine features – having been posted on various places uncredited and with illegible tags. Buying and scanning magazines is something I enjoy doing for a fansite but it costs money and time. So instead of simply taking them for your own use please take the additional time of maybe commenting on here how much you appreciate them and add a link back to Magnifique Marion Cotillard should you post them someplace else. It would be much appreciated!

Le Grand Journal: Oscar win interview
France’s Le Grand Journal interviewed Marion Cotillard about her Oscar win. The interview was aired Tuesday eveing on Canal+. I’ve added the HQ clip as well as screencaptures. Among other things – such as ‘was her thank you speech prepared?’ – we learn that she flew to Chicago today to start work on ‘Public Enemies’ – her new movie with Johnny Depp and by Michael Mann.
For a full English translation read Delsa‘s comment on a similar entry – containing a YouTube version of the same video – on Marion Cotillard ‘s Road to Oscar.
I suppose Marion was giving some interviews for US television programmes too. Has anybody been able to catch any? Reports about them, pics or even clips would be most welcome!

I’ve added many more pictures of Marion Cotillard arriving at the Oscars as well as from during the ceremony. The album 80th Academy Awards – Arrivals & Ceremony now contains 140 pictures. Note the pictures of Marion and Cate Blanchett greeting each other on the red carpet as well as Helen Mirren and George Clooney congratulating her after her Best Actress win. I’ll soon add the photos from the Pressroom and the after parties too.
