Marion Cotillard left New York earlier this week to attend the BAFTA Los Angeles 2010 Britannia Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles on Thursday. Wearing a grey sequin one-shoulder dress by Elie Saab she presented her ‘Inception‘ director with the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Artistic Excellence in Directing. She was also pictured with Cillian Murphy and Harvey Weinstein.
As poste earlier, the awards ceremony will air on US Television later tonight, Sunday, November 7 on TV Guide as of 7.30pm ET/PT. The actual ceremony will start at 8.00pm after the red carpet special. Is anybody recording this? I would love to have a clip for the site, thank you!

France 4 & 2 finally aired the Taratata episode featuring Marion Cotillard. She appeared as Simone along with Yodelice for the song ‘More than meets the eye’ and then performed the David Bowie song ‘Velvet Goldmine’ as a duo with Yodelice. And then she was also interviewed. Rewatch the entire episode on MyTaratata.com.
She talked about her love of music and how she’s always had the dream to make music but it wasn’t until Yodelice aka Maxim Nucci pushed her that she’s living the dream. Yodelice was quick to praise her, saying that she’s very gifted and quick in learning how to play instruments by herself. She learned how to play the piano at home when she was little and how to play the cello for a film (‘Toi et moi‘) and now the guitar and bass guitar. When told not to minimalize her talents she explained that it was out of respect for musicians that she’s careful not to over emphasize her musical talents. When asked whether she dreamed of becoming a singer (musicienne) or an actress (comédienne) when she was a little girl she said she dreamed of being in musicals (comédies musicales). This lead to the music video Marion was in when she was 14 years old. She loved the song ‘Petite Fille’ a lot at the time and still loves the band Les Wampas. They joked that they could have a re-union on the show. Marion was also asked whether it’s imaginable that there’d be a solo album in the future and she said yes. The host joked that this probably means it’s already in preparation.
Here are links to things that were mentioned in the interview: Petite Fille (pictures, video), Milord duet with Jenifer (pictures, video) and The Eyes of Mars (pictures, video).

Marion Cotillard’s been busy filming her scenes for ‘Contagion‘ lately. Last weekend she was seen around New York City. On Saturday she attended the epic Heaven and Hell Halloween party at the Standard Hotel where actors, fashion designers, models, modelizers and more hang out in costumes. There are a ton of pictures available but only purple DIARY and W Magazine have photographs of Marion.
On Monday, she attended the naag.com Launch Party at the Mary Queen of Scots and was almost incognito – but Jalouse.fr has a picture of her with Cécile Cassel and Cole Alexander.

I recorded bits of this night’s Mon Taratata à moi from my internet TV player. The quality is not the best but you can now enjoy Marion Cotillard in a photo booth choosing a performance by Lily Allen from the Taratata archives for her personal Taratata show. Why Lily? Because Marion loves England and Rock – and that’s what Lily stands for.
There was about 1.5 second at the end of the show I didn’t manage to record where Marion was waving goodbye. Now, I really can’t wait for next week when she’ll actually be performing on the real Taratata show!

Yodélice’s new music video to the first song Breathe In on the new album is out! Watch the music video on UniversalMusic.fr. It features footage from the studio as well as live concerts – and really captures the atmosphere of seeing the band peform live! I’m not sure whether this is the final version or only a teaser – but for my taste it’s far too short!
