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 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
Thanks to dedicated ‘Marion-researcher’ JV – member of the forum at the official Cotillard family website – I came across some fabulous pictures of Marion Cotillard trying out costumes for her upcoming role as Billie in ‘Public Enemies’. See all pictures on Voici.fr. I’ve added most to the newly opened ‘Public Enemies’ gallery here on the site. I’ve also finally brought the sidebar up to date with the current status of Marion’s upcoming projects.
As announced earlier, here some fantastic pictures of Marion Cotillard. How more adorable can she look? I so love the 2 dresses she’s wearing to these new events & portraits. Kudos to Chopard for honouring Marion – they really seem to like her. They’ve awarded her with their Chopard trophy at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival before. Marion also attended their event at least year’s Cannes festival and appeared in a special portfolio to advertise Chopard in various issues of Elle magazine. Guests who turned up at Marion’s honoring included Amy Ryan, director Julian Schnabel, Harry Dean Stanton, Cuba Gooding Jr, Eric Mabius and Rob Morrow.
I also found 4 additonal pictures of the Oscar Nomination portrait session. Enjoy!
