As reported earlier, ‘Nine‘ will be shown at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival as the Birthday Special Gala. This will be on Friday, February 19, 2010 at 9pm the Friedrichstadtpalast. Reportedly, Marion Cotllard

Oscar Nomination for ‘Take It All’
Earlier today the nominations for the 82nd Academy Awards (Oscars) were announced. Though Marion Cotillard herself was not nominated the song she performs in ‘Nine‘ was among the 5 nominated songs in the category Music (Original Song). Though this is mainly honoring songwriter Maury Yeston I like to think that Marion’s performance helped it to get nominated and just shows that she herself would have been nominated had she been campaigned as Supporting Actress instead of Leading Actress by The Weinstein Company.
Music (Original Song)
• “Almost There” from “The Princess and the Frog” Music and Lyric by Randy Newman
• “Down in New Orleans” from “The Princess and the Frog” Music and Lyric by Randy Newman
• “Loin de Paname” from “Paris 36” Music by Reinhardt Wagner Lyric by Frank Thomas
• “Take It All” from “Nine” Music and Lyric by Maury Yeston
• “The Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart)” from “Crazy Heart” Music and Lyric by Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett
Here’s Maury’s reaction to his nomination:
“I’m so grateful to Marion Cotillard for doing such a beautiful job with that song. It’s a very special honor to be singled out by the Academy and the world of film and my first foray into that world.”

‘Nine‘ was also nominated in the categories Actress in a Supporting Role (Penélope Cruz), Art Direction and Costume Design. Congratulations! See all Oscar Nominations here.
‘Nine’ will be Birthday Special Gala Screening in Berlin
3 years after getting international recognition when ‘La Vie en Rose‘ celebrated its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, Marion Cotillard could actually come back to Germany. Yesterday, the festival announced their line-up for the “Berlin Special” Gala screenings at the upcoming 60th Berlin International Film Festival. ‘Nine‘ is one of them – and it will actually be the festival’s Birthday Special screening ahead of its theatrical release in Germany. Upon inquiry by Welt Online they could not yet confirm any of the star’s appearances, though. Let’s hope Marion will attend!

Marion about Rob Marshall
I think by now we’ve all seen Rob Marshall singing Marion’s praises at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Ceremony so I bring you a quote from Marion about the ‘Nine‘ director:
That human empathy defined Rob Marshall’s relationships with the actresses who star in “Nine.”
“I’ve worked with many directors you could really trust,” Marion Cotillard says. “The thing with Rob is, it’s the first time I worked with a director in an atmosphere of love.” Even on a massive set, she says, when Marshall had to use a microphone system to talk to the cast, “It was always this sweet and nice voice that he had. You know sometimes, when you talk about sweetness, it’s not always positive. But with Rob, he really is the sweetest director I’ve ever worked with. And that’s how he gets what he wants.”
