Congratulations! Variety reports that Marion Cotillard will receive a career tribute during the 22nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards ceremony held on November 26 at Cipriani Wall Street in downtown Manhattan. Other tributes will go to Matt Damon, director David O Russell and Participant Media’s Jeff Skoll. The ceremony will also award winners in seven competish categories including feature, documentary, breakthrough director and actor, and ensemble.
Joana Vicente, Executive Director of the Independent Film Project, which run the Gotham Awards, is quoted as saying:
It is with pride and great pleasure that we give tribute to these luminaries, each of whom plays an amazing role in expanding the language of film, breaking boundaries along the way. Each has a unique voice and clearly defined vision of cinema for the current generation, bringing perspective and relevance to the film world today (Source).
Marion Cotillard is not only a delight to watch, she is one of the most talented women working in cinema around the world today. Her acting choices are always challenging and rewarding, and her performances show that she is a truly skilled artist, totally dedicated to her craft. We are so honored to present this Tribute to a woman of her magnitude (Source).
Le Monde featured an article about James Gray’s upcoming movie starring Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix in their magazine M this past weekend. I added digital scans (sorry for the somewhat poor quality). It featured new stills from the movie. It looks so exciting and I can’t wait to see the it. Apparently, the audience at a masterclass during the Zurich Film Festival last month – held by the movie’s producer Greg Shapiro – were also treated to some footage from the movie (Screendaily.com). However, it will probably be released next spring (Bluewin), so we have to be patient.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Marion Cotillard will receive the Hollywood Actress Award for her performance in ‘Rust & Bone‘ during the 16th annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala Ceremony on October 22 at the Beverly Hilton. Congratulations! This is the second time that she is named Actress of the Year by these awards. She has previously received it in 2007 for her performance in ‘La Vie en Rose‘.
Hollywood Film Festival founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu is quoted as saying:
“It is a privilege to honor her great talent, as well as her outstanding performance in Rust and Bone.”
This only gives proof that all the Oscarologists predicting an Oscar nomination for her might be on the right track (20 of 21 experts are currently predicting this). The Hollywood Film Awards are the first awards show of the 2012 Oscar season and interestingly, Hollywood Film Awards honorees went on to garner a total of 85 Oscar nominations and 32 Oscars in the past nine years.
We’re being hit with loads of news. The 56th BFI London Film Festival (October 10-21) unveiled their line-up earlier today – and guess what, ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) is on it. Not only that, it is also competing in the category Official Competition. There are 12 films in each of the 3 competitive categories. There are 2 screenings:
Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 8:30 PM
Sunday, October 14, 2012 12:30 PM
The festival’s comment to the plot synopsis of the “unpitchable” film is:
That such potentially lurid material is explored with subtlety and emotional complexity is tribute not only to Audiard, but to his extraordinary leads. Marion Cotillard is mesmerising in arguably her most challenging role yet, while up-and-comer Schoenaerts impresses mightily as an apparent lunk suddenly forced to look for his hidden resources. Rust and Bone is as punchy and abrasive as its title suggests – but intensely moving and surprisingly poetic too.
Additionally, Variety reports that Marion herself will be participating in a Screen Talk during the festival.
As previously posted Marion Cotillard will perform as Jeanne d’Arc in Arthur Honegger’s oratorio Jeanne au bûcher with the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona (OBC) on November 17 and 18.
