I’ve diligently transferred all the existing video clips of Marion at public appearances from the old to the new archive – bringing the total count in the new archive to 110. I’ve also added 4 new clips: 2006 Cannes Festival, 2007 Hollywood Awards Interview (by a rather ignorant reporter…) and 2009 Oscars Backstage & Red Carpet.
And here’s the transcript of what Marion said to Kate Winslet during the recent Oscar ceremony:
Kate Winslet, with each new role you continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Your brilliant performance in “The Reader” encompasses all the qualities that have always drawn us to you: passion, vulnerability and extraordinary depth. As your character move through time, love and the most dire of circumstances we, as your audience Kate, never lose a connection to you. This is yet another unforgettable portrait from one of our most gifted actresses and one of our most inspiring. Thank you!
And something cute I found online:
Fresh off her emotional acceptance speech, best actress Oscar winner Kate Winslet was still shaking when she came backstage.
“Oh my God. Oh my god. Did I make any sense?” she asked presenter Marion Cotillard.
“Totally. Don’t worry,” Cotillard, last year’s winner, told her.
“I’ve got to phone my kids,” Winslet, still shaking, said as she headed toward a hallway.

I transferred all the movie trailers & clips of projects with Marion Cotillard from the old video archive and added also a few more, all I could find, actually. Among them a rare trailer for “Lisa“. There are now also French trailers for “A Good Year” and “Big Fish” as she provided her voice for the French versions as well. I also added a few trailers with either English audio or subtitles, e.g. for “Mary” or “Burnt Out“. In addition, I added some DVD Extras for “Jeux d’enfants“, “Taxi 2“, “La Boîte Noire” and “Les Jolies Choses“. There are now a total of 63 videos in the new archive – more to come!
I’ve installed a new Video Archive. Huge thank you goes to my wonderful host Fan-Sites.org, who’s hosting the media part of the website! I hope you’ll love the fact that you’ll be able to directly play the videos instead of having to download & unzip them first as much as I! Over the coming days the old archive will be transferred to the new one.
I’ve also taken the opportunity to some videos of Marion Cotillard during the recent Oscars. Thanks Mariana for recording one of the red carpet interviews!

[edit March 7:] I’ve enabled user registration so that rating and commenting of the pictures work. Let’s see how long we can escape the spam, otherwise I’ll have to disable it again. Have fun!
Today was one of those rare occasions when I tried to create layouts myself. Results can be seen in the media parts of the website. Feedback is much appreciated! I will try to get the new layout for the main website up soon – stay tuned!
We have a beautiful new layout by the insanely talented Lucile from Lie Awake Inc. What do you think? Please comment. I hope you like it all as much as I do.
Best display is in Firefox or Internet Explorer 7. However, I’ve really tried to make the layout work in all kinds of browsers. Please let me know if you come across any bugs. Thank you!
And the Gallery is back! A HUGE thank you to Gertie from Fan-Sites.org for hosting our extensive gallery & video archives. I’ve been extremely busy transferring all the files to the new server and I hope you won’t come across missing files. If you do please let me know. Over the coming hours also the Television category should be filled with pictures.
