Thanks to Gabriel – visitor of Marion Cotillard’s Road to Oscar – for the heads up. French TV channel Canal+ aired a new interview with Marion Cotillard and La Vie en Rose director Olivier Dahan on Saturday as part of their César nominee special. It seems to have been recorded at the same time as the César nominees dinner took place on Wednesday. Marion Cotillard seems very exhausted – no doubt due to her recent cold which surely isn’t getting better quickly with all the travelling across continents and jetlag. I hope she’ll soon feel better. Also, the interviewer in my opinion should have tried to ask different questions when she realized both of her interviewees weren’t going to give her the answers she was looking for. Nevertheless, it is an interesting watch and in the intro montage you can spot some footage of the ‘Public Enemies’ costume fitting.

The last scan update for today. February issues of both the US and the Italian Men’s Vogue feature Marion Cotillard.
Another Media Alert: Marion is featured in the March issue of US Elle in a 14 (!) page photo spread. See scans of the gorgeous pictures at the Fashion Spot Forum. Thanks Mycah for the heads up and Jen for the link. Scans will come soon to the gallery here.
I have now added scans of all the magazines I have and that were published in 2007 and 2008 and feature Marion. Do you have some magazines that are missing? Could you maybe scan them and contribute to the site? I’d be very thankful. I will soon – not making any promises as to when, though – start scanning earlier publications.
The day before it was removed from the newsstand, I accidentally came across an issue of German magazine called Stern reporting on this event. Of course I had to buy it and scan it for the site! The article is a translated and shortened version of the afore-mentioned transcript. To make things even better I also added the outtakes of the photos used in the magazine (and in a previous issue of Newsweek) to the gallery.
I have spent a tremendous amount of time this afternoon scanning various magazines featuring Marion Cotillard. In this first batch there’s nothing totally new but nevertheless I’m sure you will be enjoying them.

I think I have now finished adding all the pictures and videos of Marion Cotillard at last Sunday’s BAFTA Awards. Due to the high amount of pictures of Marion on the red carpet, in the pressroom and attending after parties – mostly HQ – I decided to divide them into 3 different albums. Additionally to adding a video of Marion presenting an award to Javier Bardem I’ve also replaced the existing clip of her own win with one that includes the full presentation speech of Harvey Keitel and the clip from La Vie en Rose. Finally, there’s a clip called ‘Various’ – it includes small glimpses of Marion on the red carpet, Eva Green, Keira Knightley and Daniel Day-Lewis mentioning Marion and Marion’s comment about being confused with Keira by fans on the red carpet.
If you have any additional pictures/clips please feel free to send them in. Also, does anybody have a better quality clip of Marion’s acceptance speech? Could you in that case please send in screencaptures? That’d be awesome!

We also learn why Marion Cotillard’s part in ‘Public Enemies’ is somewhat daunting:
The first thing I have to do to erase my French accent is think that it is actually possible, whereas for the moment, I think it’s not. I have a lot of work.
Since I hadn’t updated on this when it was hot news I hadn’t found the time to do so amidst all the frenzy surrounding Marion Cotillard’s win at the BAFTAs. But she was named Actress of the Year at the 28th Annual London Film Critics’ Circle Awards last Friday – beating fellow nominees Laura Linney, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Angelina Jolie and Anamaria Marinca. She looked fabulous in a Chanel dress:
Update Feb 16 Added a few HQ pics to the album bringing the total count up to 54
Marion Cotillard is back in France – or at least for the time being. She attended the dinner held in honour of all the nominees for a César award. Remember, the ceremony’ll take place on February 22 and if you live in France you can watch it take place live on Canal + as of 9pm. Marion Cotillard is sure to win – else it’ll be a very serious case of snubbing, I think. Many thanks to Mariana for some of the pictures.
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
Thanks to Marion Cotillard’s Road to Oscar for the heads up. This year’s Oscars Portfolio in The New York Times Magazine features Marion Cotillard. The issue will come out this Sunday, February 10.
Language may also be an obstacle for Marion Cotillard, who played the legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose.” In what is a particularly striking breakthrough performance, Cotillard shifts in age and mood from Piaf’s early days as a hustling street urchin to her death at 47. Cotillard has starred in hit films in France and appeared opposite Russell Crowe in “A Good Year” in 2006, but “La Vie en Rose” is, much like Penélope Cruz’s performance in “Volver” in 2006, a breakthrough, because suddenly she was seen as a serious actress. Yet no French actress — including Catherine Deneuve or Isabelle Adjani — has ever cracked the accent barrier in America. Cotillard is determined to try: she has taken intense Berlitz classes to learn pitch-perfect English, and she has already been cast in a big-screen adaptation of the musical “Nine,” which will also star Javier Bardem. Cotillard’s ability to mesh utterly with the life of Edith Piaf is not unlike the sense of commitment and attention to detail that dominates Daniel Day-Lewis’s work.
I’ve updated the gallery with all the new pictures. If anyone is able to send in file versions of the videos for the Media Vault please consider doing so. I would be so happy
