Welcome to 2011! I know I haven’t managed to add all the missing pictures from 2010 appearances and magazine features to the gallery but since I already skipped it last year for these reasons I decided to compile a review of 2010 nontheless. What are your choices? Feel free to comment!
Best News: Marion Cotillard being awarded the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival last January and ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) being the most successful French movie of the year. And of course Marion joining the French rock band Yodélice as Simone.
Worst News: After Marion’s participation in the oratorio ‘Jeanne au bûcher‘ was announced for November back in August we didn’t hear anything further. November came and went without the special performances happening. And 48 hours before the year ended Harry Potter passed ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) at the French box office keeping it from being the most successful movie of the year in France.
On Sunday the International Press Academy handed out the Satellite Awards. While Marion Cotillard didn’t win for her nominated supporting performance in ‘Inception‘ (Jacki Weaver did for ‘Animal Kingdom‘) the movie itself won in the categories ‘Original Score’ (Hans Zimmer), ‘Cinematography’ (Wally Pfister), and ‘Art Direction & Production Design’ – 3 wins out of 11 nominations.
But good news is that they uploaded Marion’s acceptance speech from when she won ‘Best Actress’ on December 16, 2007 for her performance in ‘La Vie en Rose‘. She wasn’t able to attend but recorded this lovely message from Paris.

As promised, I added scans of the new feature about Marion Cotillard and Maud Fontenoy in the latest issue of Paris Match. Unfortunately, the version of the cover with the 2 of them is only for the digital issue. The actual printed magazine has Prince William & Kate on the cover. So the quality of the cover in the gallery is not the best.
Kindly do not redistribute the magazine scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were scanned exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
A few months ago, on October 8 – on a Friday after having taped the Vivement Dimanche show and skipped a local ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ premiere due to being too sick to attend earlier the same week – Marion Cotillard accompanied Maud Fontenoy to the Collège Valmy in Paris for the launch of the project ‘Saving Marine Biodiversity’. Also present were French Ecology Minister Jean-Louis Borloo and French Paris commissioner of education, Patrick Gerard. The Maud Fontenoy Foundation is supplying the educational kit to 7 031 schools in France. Marion Cotillard said that when she was the same age as the students there was no talk of biodiversity at school. Back then, people didn’t realize yet that the planet is degrading. So she encouraged the students to lern about the issue so that their generation can make a difference. Smilingly, she noted that seeing them learn about biodiversity makes her want to go back to school. Watch a video on Bioaddict.fr.

Jonathan Ross – former BBC presenter of Film 2010 – has found a new job. Despite intending to take a year off from television after leaving the BBC this summer, he’ll be back next week. As the new face of Cinemoi– the French specialist channel shown on Sky Channel 443 and Virgin Media channel 445.
The film buff, who has taken shares in the channel, will take up a varied role as a presenter, producer and creative director. His first interview for Cinemoi will be with Marion Cotillard, the Oscar-winning star of La Vie en Rose, which will be screened next month.

Marion Cotillard is on the cover of the new Paris Match in France – together with French sailor Maud Fontenoy. The pictures were taken mid-November in La Rochelle on Maud’s boat. The interview gives us insight into their collaboration that properly took after Marion attended the Maud Fontanoy Gala on world ocean’s day back in June. Check back later this week for more about their collaboration and the actual scans.
