More awards for Marion Cotillard! The votes for the 2007 NRJ Cine Awards were in and Marion won ‘Frenchie of the year’ and ‘Best Look’ for her turn as Edith Piaf in La Môme – and the film itself won ‘Top Box Office’.
If anyone caught it on TV last night, do you have clips of Marion’s appearance? It will be re-aired this weekend on France’s NRJ12 Saturday at midnight and next week on Wednesday at 0.50 am. Can anybody who gets that channel be on the lookout for Marion and make clips for this site? That’d be amazing!
Here the pictures I’ve been able to find so far:
Marion Cotillard will receive the breakthrough performance award for her work as chanteuse Edith Piaf in “La Vie en rose” at the 19th Palm Springs Film Festival. Thesp will be presented with the nod at in a gala ceremony at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Jan. 5.
“Marion Cotillard delivers a tour de force performance as legendary singer Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, which is sure to be recognized throughout this year’s awards season,” Festival chairman Earl Greenburg said in a statement. “This is truly one of the year’s breakthrough performances, and we’re delighted to recognize her for this outstanding role.”
Also the always helpful and lovely Mariana has made marion-cotillard.org her Spotlight at her Sarah Polley website. Many THANKS! Be sure to head over and visit this great source on the Canadian actress/director.
However exciting English Marion Cotillard features are they are still in most cases more or less recycling known facts & pictures. But, guess what I found today at the newsstand? The latest issue of Paris Match (September 13-19) has an amazing article on Marion Cotillard.
Although La Vie en Rose yet has to come to South America Marion Cotillard finished her 6-month promotion tour for the film at the end of August in Japan. She spent 6 days at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Tokyo (Lost in Translation anyone?) and apart from attending the Press Conference (which we have pics from) she also 50 interviews, posed for fans in the streets (who know her from Taxi) or sometimes even helped preparing sushi. Paris Match accompanied her and that’s what the article is about. I’ve added the scans and you can watch behind-the-scenes photos in a video on their website or download it from the Video Vault.
I can’t wait to see the pictures she was posing for during this stay in Japan. Or videos of her interviews – e.g the one where the journalist started singing a Piaf song and asked Marion to dance. If you come across any of them can you please share them with us? That’d be amazing!
I’ve added/replaced some movie stills with HQ ones (thanks Sara Amelia for helping me with these!) Also the scans of various Marion Cotillard features from publications in English are now in the gallery (many thanks Stef for your much appreciated help with some of these) as well as a wallpaper by Sholdina. If you too have some fanart/wallpaper with Marion feel free to send them in – I’ll be happy to add them.

I’ve finally taken the time to figure out how to customize the look of the Video Vault. It should now look like a part of this site and I hope you don’t encounter any problems. I’ve also added a few new clips with Marion Cotillard – expect many more over the coming weeks!
Quote: “Each day a Celebrity Site of the Day is chosen. Not every site can become Celebrity Site of the Day. A site must have something special, for example a good layout, good design, excellent graphics or lots of information to become Celebrity Site of the Day.”
Playbill.com reports that ‘Nine’ director Rob Marshall confirmed the casting of Javier Bardem as Guido, Marion Cotillard as his wife Louisa, Penelope Cruz as mistress Carla, Catherine Zeta-Jones as muse Claudia and Sophia Loren as his mother.
Little bit of trivia: Back in June Marion was assumedly already making a reference to her new role in an interview with Coming Soon when she said:
And how will she follow up this landmark role and performance? “Nothing that I can talk about right now, but it’s going to be a stage musical, sort of rock opera.”
You can now pre-order La Vie en Rose on DVD Region 1 (released Nov 13). In the UK it will come to DVD on November 26.
Also ‘Ma vie en l’air’ is coming to German DVD on October 11 as Love is in the air. It will have French & German audio and as Special Features the Making of (subtitled), 2 Trailers and cast info. Pre-Order here.
When will La Vie en Rose be released on Region 1 DVD? This question has been on the mind of many fan. The suspense is over! While Videoeta still lists a general November release Marion Cotillard’s Road to Oscar has been able to find out more: November 13! And apparently it will be an extended version, too! Which probably means the deleted scenes that can be found on the French DVD will be included in the main film.
As the previously mentioned blog also points out, this is a perfect timing to remind critics and Academy members of Marion’s outstanding performance – thus making an Oscar nomination more possible! Reminding certainly is in need, the film was released in July, which isn’t exactly Awards season.
