80th Academy Awards Coverage – Part 1
4.30 pm/1.30 am: Marion Cotillard has been spotted on the red carpet! She’s looking absolutely glamourous and beautiful in a low-cut white dress and a kind of an old-Hollywood hairdo!
4.37 pm/1.37 am: The fashion lady from E! loves Marion’s dress! It’s Jean Paul Gaultier by the way. In the interview she talks about living in the presence and enjoying every minute as well as about her American accent for her role of Billie in ‘Public Enemies’.
5.35 pm/2.35 am: It’s getting earlier and earlier over here. But I’ve added 11 gorgeous HQ pictures to the 80th Academy Awards folder in the gallery.

7.16 pm/4.16 am: Warmest congratulations again! I’m sooo happy! As luck would have it my internet connection decided to act weird in the middle of Marion’s speech Also I couldn’t get it recorded. Sorry! In the meantime I have some other interviews for you, incl. the interview by E! News:
10.13 pm/7.13 am: Thanks to Mycah we have a HQ clip of Marion’s acceptance speech:
TV Alert: La Guerre dans le Haut Pays
This is an alert for all the French Marion Cotillard fans! Can’t wait to hear news of tonight’s Oscar ceremony? Don’t know how to pass the time till the wee hours? Here’s something you can do. Watch La Guerre dans le Haut Pays tonight on Cinecinema Emotion at 10.55pm. To my knowledge the film, originally released in 1998, is only available on DVD in Switzerland as part of a very expensive and rare Ferdinand Ramuz DVD collection and is therefore really hard to catch. Marion’s portrayal of the passionate and young Juliette is sure to break your heart – and I bet you’ll be even more in awe of her talent after seeing this.
Air dates for ‘La Guerre dans le Haut Pays’ on Cinecinema Emotion:February 24, 22.55h / February 27, 02.50h / February 28, 12.00h
Videos from César Awards and more
Many thanks to joliechose for sending in HQ files of Marion Cotillard’s acceptance speech during the 33rd César Awards as well as her interview with Laurent Weil before the ceremony. I’ve thus been able to add really good quality caps of those to the gallery and as usual mq video clips to the Video Vault. Thanks to Paolo I’ve also added tiny bits of Marion’s interviews after her win as shown on France 2 and TF1 in their news reports. Additionally, there’s a small clip of Marion attending the César Nominees dinner a week ago as well as 2 French news reports: Journal d’Hollywood and JT13h.

Premiere + Vanity Fair March
I’ve added my own scans of Marion Cotillard re-enacting a scene from ‘Psycho’ in the Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair. Also big thanks to joliechose who sent me scans of the new issue of French Premiere magazine. It features Marion on the cover and is full of lovely quotes from people who’ve had the privilege of working with her over the years, including Dikkenek co-star Mélanie Laurent. Again, is anybody able to send in a good translation of this? If not, I’ll be trying my own luck on it soon.
There’s also a preview of the upcoming documentary about Marion on the La Vie en Rose promotion tour ‘Mon Clown’. Strangely, it gives a different date for it: March 7 as opposed to the previously announced March 14. If anyone knows which is the ‘real’ date please do let us know!
And a new TV alert: French TV channel M6 will be airing a portrait documentary about Marion Cotillard on March 1, 11.30 am. (source)
07 Premiere (France) – March
02 Vanity Fair (US) – March
