Marion Cotillard received an honorary tribute during the Gotham Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in New York on Monday evening. Her co-star from Big Fish, Public Enemies and the upcoming Blood Ties smilingly and with a lot of praise introduced the tribute. In her speech Marion Cotillard heralded challenges and new experiences that smaller films provide. She also said that filmmakers need champions and thanked IFP for being those champions. She thanked director Jacques Audiard and Matthias Schoeaerts and dedicated the award to 2 people who have always trusted in her at every stage of her career: her 2 agents Laurent Grégoire and Hylda Queally – all of which were also present.
PLEASE if you can find a video of this lovely speech, can you send it in? I unfortunately didn’t manage to record it from the livestream.
Many thanks to Luciana for her great help with many of the pictures from the event. I also added snippets from news reports as a video.
After the awards Marion Cotillard and others from the Gotham Awards headed over to N. 8 for the ‘Killing Them Softly‘ Premiere After Party. She was pictured with her agent Hylda Queally.
Marion Cotillard’s taped segment on the Chelsea Lately Show aired last night & she looked gorgeous. The interview was really short – just over 6 minutes only – and while there were hints of serious answers it is definitely a comedy show and was mostly geared towards generating laughter. Marion was a good sport though and seemed to enjoy herself. Enjoy!
‘Grand Public’ a, I think new, show that brings in-depth reports about all things culture on French TV channel France 2 aired a segment about Marion Cotillard in Barcelona last Thursday night. I added the clip as well as HQ screencaptures on Friday but forgot to post about it.
They showed how big the anticipation was in Barcelona by showing news clippings and posters for the show. However, the people in charge are cited who say that they didn’t want a lot of mediazation or attention so they were happy it only started in the few days before the show. The report included some footage of Marion and the other performers getting ready before the show.
The report later laid out how important this role was to Marion, how close to her heart. After having been handed the show by her mother, so to speak, in 2005 (they included a few seconds of footage with her mother as Joan of arc) she wanted to reprise it again. So when the people in Barcelona were organizing their celebration of the 600th anniversary of Joan of Arc’s birth and wanted to include Honegger’s oratorio but were lacking a main actress then heard that Marion was interested they jumped at the chance. Apparently, there really doesn’t exist any footage of Marion in the play back in 2005 as they only showed stills and had a reporter recall how it was. He said that she was exceptional and that it showed what she could do. If she could do Joan of Arc in this then she could do Edith Piaf. Which she, as we all know, did. Now, a Hollywood star she’s still capable of doing it.
Another reporter said that it’s a challenging part, when you do it right it can be the highlight of your career but when you mess it up it can be the worst experience ever, even put you out of business.
So seeing again the overwhelming approval of the audience by their (10 min) long applause and seeing an emotional and overwhelmed but satisfied Marion backstage after the show, hugging the producer and talking to the press was quite moving to watch.
I have some more articles & TV reports about this but have to get it ready (in English) first.
I added the video and HD screencaptures of Marion’s appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night – though it was recorded 2 weeks ago on December 6. It was as funny as those Ferguson interviews get, Marion was at ease and played along with his jokes and was goofing around. It’s really entertaining to watch – though actual content-wise there’s nothing new. Oh, and she looked really chic in that outfit and the bright red lipstick.
Marion is featured in the Hollywood Reporter’s annual Actress Roundtable this year! The magazine gets together chosen actresses involved in the years Oscar race, and talks to them about all things actress-y. This year they talk to Marion, Naomi Watts, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Sally Field, Rachel Weisz and Helen Hunt.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Actress Roundtable was held October 22nd at Siren Studios in Hollywood.
The full roundtable discussion has been posted online for us to watch, which you can do below. A text version is featured in the November 30th edition of the magazine with the actresses all looking beautiful on the cover in a new group photoshoot. That is posted below for you too. Mia and I have added the cover, photoshoot pictures, and behind the scenes of the photoshoot and discussion to our Gallery. Needless to say, we will be on the lookout for scans, and if you can help us out with this, please get in touch 🙂
