Second Nomination for ‘Nine’
Marion Cotillard has been nominated a second time already for her performance in ‘Nine‘. This time by the Detroit Film Critics Society and in a different category (this is the only nomination for ‘Nine‘):
6. Best Supporting Actress
Marion Cotillard, Nine
Vera Farmiga, Up in the Air
Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air
Mélanie Laurent, Inglourious Basterds
The 2009 winners will be announced on December 18, 2009. There really is some confusion regarding her placement. As we posted a while back, The Weinstein Company is campaigning her as lead since she has the most screentime of all the ladies and also to give the other actresses a shot at winning supporting awards. However, since ‘Nine‘ is an ensemble Marion’s role is maybe more aptly described as supporting. Let’s see how this’ll turn out. In my opinion, it’s just nice to see that her hard work is being appreciated as it is.
November appearance on ‘Oprah’
Finally, the video and captures of Marion’s appearance on Oprah together with Daniel Day Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Kate Hudson on November 18, 2009.

Marion featured in Envoyé Spécial
Yesterday’s Star profile in Envoyé Spécial on France 2 was about Guillaume Canet. As the documentary also had footage from the ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘ and ‘Le dernier vol‘ sets as well as the Gaumont reception at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, there was also new footage of Marion Cotillard. I added the caps and an edited clip.
Guillaume is a Ferrari, Marion a Porsche.

Marion on Time’s Top 10 Movie Performances List
TIME charts the highs and lows of the past year in 50 wide-ranging lists under the title The Top 10 Everything of 2009. Marion Cotillard is featured on the Top 10 Movie Performances List for her performance in ‘Nine‘:
5. Marion Cotillard as Luisa Contini in Nine
The actresses in Nine, Rob Marshall’s musical drama based on Federico Fellini’s 8½, come alive when they sing. Penélope Cruz, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren and (wow) Fergie all lend their solo turns knowing eroticism and high snazz. But Cotillard, as the wife of a desperate filmmaker (Daniel Day-Lewis) is in command of her character whether she’s singing, speaking or just staring darts at her philandering mate. Pain rarely seemed so proud, or hurt so regal, as in Cotillard’s rendition of the ballad “My Husband Makes Movies.” The actress’s showy turn as Edith Piaf in La vie en rose earned her an Oscar. Here, she’s simpler, deeper, better.
