According to The Hollywood Reporter Marion Cotillard will receive the Hollywood Actress Award for her performance in ‘Rust & Bone‘ during the 16th annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala Ceremony on October 22 at the Beverly Hilton. Congratulations! This is the second time that she is named Actress of the Year by these awards. She has previously received it in 2007 for her performance in ‘La Vie en Rose‘.
Hollywood Film Festival founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu is quoted as saying:
“It is a privilege to honor her great talent, as well as her outstanding performance in Rust and Bone.”
This only gives proof that all the Oscarologists predicting an Oscar nomination for her might be on the right track (20 of 21 experts are currently predicting this). The Hollywood Film Awards are the first awards show of the 2012 Oscar season and interestingly, Hollywood Film Awards honorees went on to garner a total of 85 Oscar nominations and 32 Oscars in the past nine years.
There were many more articles/interviews posted from Toronto International Film Festival (and one belatedly from Telluride Film Festival) over the past few days. Videos are also slowly emerging. Apart from the ones added today there’s a sneak peak of what looks like a great & funny video with Marion Cotillard & Matthias Schoenaerts. Can’t wait for the full version!

After doing some press interviews earlier in the day, Marion Cotillard attended first the ‘Rust and Bone‘ dinner hosted by Moet & Chandon at Michael’s on Simcoe before heading to the actual premiere of the movie held at The Elgin yesterday. More about the dinner over at Toronto Star. And there’s a new poster for the movie – to be used for promotion in the UK.
[edit:] It seems that right now Marion Cotillard is on stage after today’s screening for a Q&A together with Jacques Audiard & Matthias Schoenaerts. And Movieline has posted a spot-on review, they found words to express what I was feeling after seeing it.

To prepare for his cover sitting with Marion Cotillard for TIME Style&Design’s fall issue, photographer Peter Hapak hit the archives, collecting pictures of Paris and Parisian fashion during the 1930s, including the work of famed French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue. Studying images of women in restaurants, chatting with friends or simply roaming the streets of the city, Hapak easily understood why Paris has long been considered a fashion capital of the world. “All of the women looked like they had walked out of a fashion magazine,” he says. “Fashion is such a big part of the culture there, and you can even feel that history when walking through the city today.”
On set in Paris this August, Hapak tried to evoke this era, capturing Cotillard in designs by French fashion houses Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior, along with other designers like Andrew Gn and Dries Van Noten. “She’s the representation of the French woman for me—elegant, but not too stylized,” says Hapak of Cotillard, who won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2007 for her portrayal of French singer Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. “With the cover look, it felt like she was pulling a dress out of her own closet. It went so well with her style, and she felt really confident in it, that you would have never known she was dressing up for a shoot.”
