To start with I added some articles and interviews to the press archive:
“Each time is unique in its own way. It was my dream as a kid to be in an American musical. It’s an amazing movie and a very special movie, and I hope that people will be made more aware of it by this.”
“The light of my dream is still on and it’s really shining bright today.”
“I feel so good! I’m so, so, so happy! I’m so happy for the movie and I’m so happy for all the people who worked so hard with us because this film really was an ensemble job that we all did. We can’t separate anyone from all these nominations … This nomination is very special. It was my dream when I was a kid to do a musical, so already to be part of this adventure – especially with Rob Marshall who is a genius … This [is] a dream that became true for me and a reality.”
Yay! Marion Cotillard was nominated for her second Golden Globe (in the same category as 2 years ago):

The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards will be held Friday, January 15, 2010 at 9:00pm PST and will be broadcast live on VH1.
Before looking ahead let’s quickly review where Marion’s been in the last weeks:
November 14-16 she attended public ‘Nine‘ events in New York. Afterwards she did some ‘Nine‘ promotion in Los Angeles before returning to Paris, France. In the first week of December she was in Shanghai with David Lynch to shoot a short movie for Dior (thus missing the London ‘Nine‘ premiere). She returned to Paris, France last week where she started doing ‘Le dernier vol‘ promotion. Most notably on TV last Wednesday and yesterday but of course also behind the scenes. Places she could have gone as well – if she could be in two places at the same time – are the ‘Nine‘ premieres in Dubai and Los Angeles as well as the ‘Public Enemies‘ premiere in Japan. Due to Marion’s and Guillaume’s commitments there will be no ‘Le dernier vol‘ premiere this week in France (source: director Karim Dridi on official Facebook page).
What lies ahead? Marion is travelling to New York now.
December 15, 2009
• ‘Nine‘ premiere in New York, 6pm ET Watch live
• Larry King Live on CNN at 9pm ET (together with Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Daniel Day Lewis, Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz, Sophia Loren, Fergie and director Rob Marshall)

December 16, 2009
• Variety ‘Nine‘ Screening with Q&A, AMC Lincoln Square (NY) at 8.30pm (with director Rob Marshall)
Probably she’ll be heading to Los Angeles for awards season afterwards. Remember, ‘Le dernier vol‘ opens in France on Wednesday (Dec 16) and ‘Nine‘ opens in New York and Los Angeles on Friday (Dec 18).
Now online! The interview with the whole ‘Nine‘ cast & director Rob Marshall as aired on ABC Nightline on December 10, 2009 as well as one outtake and the full transcript of the original unaired interview!
Earlier tonight Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet were interviewed about ‘Le dernier vol‘ (‘The Last Flight‘) during the evening news on French TV. I was ready and recorded the video myself so I was able to make good quality screencaptures. Enjoy!
Yes, it’s been 7 years [since last filming a movie together] – but we’ve stayed in touch (laughs)
