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!

I have for you a clip of Marion Cotillard’s entire presentation at the BAFTA ceremony this past Sunday as well as screencaps of the show. A number of times when a winner made his way to the stage on the right side of the alley Marion could quickly be spotted. I’ve also added captures of these moments.
TF1 aired a Marion Cotillard special during their programme 50min inside. Nothing really new except you can see her arrive at the Paris Fashion Week a month ago and some new excerpts from almost 2 year old interviews. The rest of the clip shows various French journalists talk about her life after the Oscars and when she will return to France.
Remember back in February when we linked to an article about Hawksley Workman that mentioned him having “spent some time in Los Angeles working and writing songs with Golden Globe winning actress Marion Cotillard”? Well, these new songs for Cartier LOVE (Hawksley also recorded an original song) could really be the result. I found this on HawksleyWorkman.com:
While you’re there, make sure you also check out Oscar winner Marion Cotillard’s Hawksley-produced effort “The Strong Ones”.
Also, could it be that it’s him who’s providing the background vocals on Marion’s track?
To find out what exactly those LOVE bracelets are that all of these songs are advertising check out this article at Paste Magazine. And if you have trouble downloading the song from the Cartier website go here.
I have had some additional videos in relation to the recent Oscars sitting around on my computer. I finally organized them for the Video Vault and made screencaptures of some for the gallery. Be sure to check out the videos – apart from covering Marion Cotillard’s Oscar win they also show footage of ‘Taxi’ premieres, interviews from early last year and from when Marion attended a screening of ‘La Môme’ with her grandmother.
Unfortunately, the gallery system has encountered some kind of problem – it won’t let me add any new pictures. I’ve tried every solution I was able to find in the application’s support forums. However, nothing helped. During the 8 months I’ve been using this system it’s not the first time it’s been playing weird. So despite the advantages – disable hotlinking to full sized versions especially – I’ve decided to move the pictures to a fabulous Coppermine installation. Of course this will take some time but both versions will be accessible. Whatever gets removed from the old gallery can be found in the new one.

France’s Le Grand Journal interviewed Marion Cotillard about her Oscar win. The interview was aired Tuesday eveing on Canal+. I’ve added the HQ clip as well as screencaptures. Among other things – such as ‘was her thank you speech prepared?’ – we learn that she flew to Chicago today to start work on ‘Public Enemies’ – her new movie with Johnny Depp and by Michael Mann.
For a full English translation read Delsa‘s comment on a similar entry – containing a YouTube version of the same video – on Marion Cotillard ‘s Road to Oscar.
I suppose Marion was giving some interviews for US television programmes too. Has anybody been able to catch any? Reports about them, pics or even clips would be most welcome!
First of all my apologies for all the downtime you are currently experiencing with the site. It is all because of the massive increase of visitors since Marion’s historical moment at the 80th Academy Awards. I hope the site’ll soon work a lot better again. I myself am still trying to get some much needed sleep here and there and am feeling totally out of my usual rhythm. But thinking of Marion Cotillard’s win at the Oscars is still making me smile so much! She was only the second French actress ever to receive the coveted statuette as Best Actress and also only the second actress – after Sophia Loren for an Italian film – to receive an Oscar in the Best Actress category for a performance that isn’t in English. Oh, and of course she is also the first and so far only winner of an Academy Award for a performance in the French language.
Wasn’t her speech adorable? While her BAFTA acceptance speech was dominated by genuine surprise and shock I felt she seemed almost fragile and definitely overcome by emotions when accepting the César in her home country. But at the Oscars she was simply full of joy! And I loved her ‘poetic’ reference to the angels.
Oh — thank you so much. Olivier, what you did to me, Maestro Olivier Dahan, you rocked my life. You truly rocked my life. Thank you so much to Picturehouse for your passion, members of the Academy, thank you so, so much. And — wow. Well, I’m speechless now. I — I — well, I — thank you life, thank you love, and it is true, there is some angels in this city. Thank you so, so much.
Special online thanks Hylda, Bryna, Mara, Laurent, Bastien, I love you!
Canada.com named this the best acceptance speech of the evening – giving it a grade A-.
Length: 47 seconds
Quote: “Thank you life, thank you love, and it is true, there is some angels in this city.”
Wins marks for: Her display of pure joy. Witness her thanks to La Vie En Rose writer/director Olivier Dahan: “Olivier, you rocked my life. You truly rocked my life!”
Loses marks for: Saying she was “speechless” in the middle of her, um, speech and then continuing to go on. Aaah well, English ain’t her first language.
In addition to the already added clip of the Thank You Cam – where Marion quickly says a few thank yous in French – I’ve now also added the full video of the Pressroom interview. She answers questions about her performance and about the now finished awards season. She says that she’s totally overwhelmed with joy and sparkles and fireworks and everything that goes like ‘boom boom boom’, names Peter Sellers, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett and Toni Colette among others as her favourite actors and concludes by choosing the song ‘Padam’ by Edith Piaf as the one that best describes her feelings at the moment. And she sings a few notes of the song. Be sure to download the video – it is a must-see!
President of France Nicolas Sarkozy congratulates Marion Cotillard in an official statement (Full statement on AmbaFrance):
I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to Marion Cotillard, who has just received the Oscar for Best Actress for her masterful interpretation of Edith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose”, directed by Olivier Dahan.
Half a century after Simone Signoret, a French artist has received the Best Actress award at the Oscars. It was a good omen that Catherine Allegret, Simone Signoret’s daughter, herself had a role in “La Vie en Rose”.
Marion Cotillard embodies an Edith Piaf who is unsettling in her realism, emotion and passion. Her interpretation brings to life the story of a woman who gave French song its acclaim and authenticity; a singer, too, who closely united France and America.
I have almost 300 additional pictures from the Oscars saved to my computer. I will soon upload them to the site – so stay tuned!
4.30 pm/1.30 am: Marion Cotillard has been spotted on the red carpet! She’s looking absolutely glamourous and beautiful in a low-cut white dress and a kind of an old-Hollywood hairdo!
4.37 pm/1.37 am: The fashion lady from E! loves Marion’s dress! It’s Jean Paul Gaultier by the way. In the interview she talks about living in the presence and enjoying every minute as well as about her American accent for her role of Billie in ‘Public Enemies’.
5.35 pm/2.35 am: It’s getting earlier and earlier over here. But I’ve added 11 gorgeous HQ pictures to the 80th Academy Awards folder in the gallery.
7.13 pm/4.13 am: MARION COTILLARD WINS THE OSCAR!!!!!!
7.16 pm/4.16 am: Warmest congratulations again! I’m sooo happy! As luck would have it my internet connection decided to act weird in the middle of Marion’s speech Also I couldn’t get it recorded. Sorry! In the meantime I have some other interviews for you, incl. the interview by E! News:
10.13 pm/7.13 am: Thanks to Mycah we have a HQ clip of Marion’s acceptance speech:
Many thanks to joliechose for sending in HQ files of Marion Cotillard’s acceptance speech during the 33rd César Awards as well as her interview with Laurent Weil before the ceremony. I’ve thus been able to add really good quality caps of those to the gallery and as usual mq video clips to the Video Vault. Thanks to Paolo I’ve also added tiny bits of Marion’s interviews after her win as shown on France 2 and TF1 in their news reports. Additionally, there’s a small clip of Marion attending the César Nominees dinner a week ago as well as 2 French news reports: Journal d’Hollywood and JT13h.
