Marion Cotillard, Penélope Cruz, Sophia Loren and Rob Marshall attended a press conference for ‘Nine‘ at the St. Regis Hotel in Rome, Italy, earlier today. There was also a huge photocall as well as a screening of the movie later on. So far, I only finished sorting the pictures for the press conference, so stay tuned for more! Many thanks Amanda for her help with the pictures!

Each year, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts publishes a Film Awards Longlist ahead of announcing their final nominees. Marion Cotillard with her performance in ‘Nine‘ is one of 15 actresses short-listed for the “Leading Actress” award. Let’s hope that the confusion about her category placement won’t stand against her when the nominees are announced on January 21.
Marion Cotillard – again for her performance in ‘Nine‘ – is up for the Pantene Best International Actress award at the Irish Film and Television Awards. Other nominees are Penélope Cruz for ‘Broken Embraces‘, Anna Kendrick for ‘Up In The Air‘ and Meryl Streep for ‘It’s Complicated‘. This is a People’s Choice Award – residents of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are able to VOTE FOR MARION COTILLARD! The awards ceremony will take place in Dublin, February 20, 2010.
I think by now we’ve all seen Rob Marshall singing Marion’s praises at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Ceremony so I bring you a quote from Marion about the ‘Nine‘ director:
That human empathy defined Rob Marshall’s relationships with the actresses who star in “Nine.”
“I’ve worked with many directors you could really trust,” Marion Cotillard says. “The thing with Rob is, it’s the first time I worked with a director in an atmosphere of love.” Even on a massive set, she says, when Marshall had to use a microphone system to talk to the cast, “It was always this sweet and nice voice that he had. You know sometimes, when you talk about sweetness, it’s not always positive. But with Rob, he really is the sweetest director I’ve ever worked with. And that’s how he gets what he wants.”

Over the past few days I was busy preparing for this huge post. I added clips and screencaptures of all the promotional interviews Marion Cotillard did for ‘Nine‘ – except talk shows. I also replaced some stills as well as the screencaptures of the 3rd trailer with better ones and added screencaptures of Marion rehearsing her dance routine.

Remember the ‘Nine‘ Luncheon at New York’s Per Se Restaurant on December 14, 2009 – the day after appearing on the Evening News on French TV and the day before the movie’s New York Premiere? Thanks to Nadine we have footage from it. ET aired a short interview with Marion during the luncheon together with some footage of the ‘Nine‘ New York premiere (more on that event later).
She also told a journalist about her plans for the holidays during the luncheon:
Marion Cotillard told me she’s spending Christmas in Brittany seeing her 100-year-old grandmother. Then it’s off to Tanzania for a week with her boyfriend before journeying to Los Angeles for awards season.
And the lunch — it didn’t end until 4pm, at which point Marion Cotillard just about fainted from jet lag, Nicole Kidman went off to do interviews and several people went home to nap or change and get ready for Ryan Kavanagh’s cozy dinner at the Pierre Hotel’s new lounge for his Relativity Media.
I certainly hope Marion is currently enjoying her week in Africa and able to relax from all the ‘Nine‘ and ‘Le dernier vol‘ promotion frenzy!
Yesterday, ‘Le dernier vol‘ (‘The Last Flight‘) entered into its 3rd week in French cinemas. So far it hasn’t been doing as well as could be wished for. I went to see it this past Monday evening and absolutely loved it. I uploaded a ton of ‘Le dernier vol‘ related material that’s been floating around since the movie’s release. Many thanks Nadine and everyone who helped me find these.

I added 3 new interviews about ‘Nine‘. They’re lovely reads, especially the last one.
• Cotillard pushed herself into music of ‘Nine’, The Arizona Republic, Dec 24
• Marion Cotillard: The No. 1 of ‘Nine’, The Baltimore Sun, December 29
• Marion Cotillard: A tiger’s fantasy Nine lives, The Toronto Star, December 30
“Someday, I hope I’ll be more confident,” Marion told me. Then she paused, and laughed a little. “Maybe not. I think maybe it’s better to be insecure, actually.”
“When people ask me how I am like Edith Piaf, how I am like Luisa Contini, then I become very mad,” she declared, eyes blazing. “I am an actress and they are characters I am playing. Why is that so hard for some people to understand?”
“Look, if you work all the time, if just do movie after movie, you’re playing another person more than you’re being yourself and the real you can get lost that way. If you don’t live your real life, then you become empty and the only place you can find authentic inspiration is in reality. That’s where the truth is.”
“Rob (Marshall) told me he wanted to make people feel Guido ought to be with Luisa again. That was my job. Where do I find it all? In my character. Never in myself.” Her voice rises again. “I will never, never use something from my own life. I feel it is too dangerous. If you wake up an old pain, for example, because you have to cry in a scene, then how do you put that pain back to sleep again?”
During the 21st Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Marion Cotillard will be awarded the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award. Congratulations! In 2008, she was awarded the Breakthrough Performance Award at the same festival.
“Following a distinguished career in French cinema, Marion Cotillard has firmly established herself as a major actress in American films,” said festival chairman Harold Matzner. “Her performance in Rob Marshall’s ‘Nine’ is nothing short of breathtaking.”
Past recipients of the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award include Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet.
I updated the Awards & Nominations page as well as the sidebar.
