Marion on the cover of Elle
Marion Cotillard graces the cover of the new French Elle magazine – on newsstands since yesterday. Until I have time to add the actual scans of the magazines itself enjoy the portrait session of the pictures featured in the magazine and enjoy the article.
Noteworthy facts for non-French speakers: Marion Cotillard likened the 2-month rehearsals for ‘Nine‘ to Star Academy and Fame, she refused to campaign for an Oscar nomination this year and is still thinking about recording an album – with songs written by herself. But she’d need the right people to help her with it.
• Marion, la méga star, Elle, February 12, 2010
Thank you Nadine for the heads up that on February 18, 2010, 3.30pm Marion Cotillard will also be the guest on Michel Drucker’s radio show Studio Europe 1 during the ‘Nine‘ special.

Oscar Nomination for ‘Take It All’
Earlier today the nominations for the 82nd Academy Awards (Oscars) were announced. Though Marion Cotillard herself was not nominated the song she performs in ‘Nine‘ was among the 5 nominated songs in the category Music (Original Song). Though this is mainly honoring songwriter Maury Yeston I like to think that Marion’s performance helped it to get nominated and just shows that she herself would have been nominated had she been campaigned as Supporting Actress instead of Leading Actress by The Weinstein Company.
Music (Original Song)
• “Almost There” from “The Princess and the Frog” Music and Lyric by Randy Newman
• “Down in New Orleans” from “The Princess and the Frog” Music and Lyric by Randy Newman
• “Loin de Paname” from “Paris 36” Music by Reinhardt Wagner Lyric by Frank Thomas
• “Take It All” from “Nine” Music and Lyric by Maury Yeston
• “The Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart)” from “Crazy Heart” Music and Lyric by Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett
Here’s Maury’s reaction to his nomination:
“I’m so grateful to Marion Cotillard for doing such a beautiful job with that song. It’s a very special honor to be singled out by the Academy and the world of film and my first foray into that world.”

‘Nine‘ was also nominated in the categories Actress in a Supporting Role (Penélope Cruz), Art Direction and Costume Design. Congratulations! See all Oscar Nominations here.

‘Nine’ will be Birthday Special Gala Screening in Berlin
3 years after getting international recognition when ‘La Vie en Rose‘ celebrated its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, Marion Cotillard could actually come back to Germany. Yesterday, the festival announced their line-up for the “Berlin Special” Gala screenings at the upcoming 60th Berlin International Film Festival. ‘Nine‘ is one of them – and it will actually be the festival’s Birthday Special screening ahead of its theatrical release in Germany. Upon inquiry by Welt Online they could not yet confirm any of the star’s appearances, though. Let’s hope Marion will attend!
