Satellite Awards 2007 & 2010
On Sunday the International Press Academy handed out the Satellite Awards. While Marion Cotillard didn’t win for her nominated supporting performance in ‘Inception‘ (Jacki Weaver did for ‘Animal Kingdom‘) the movie itself won in the categories ‘Original Score’ (Hans Zimmer), ‘Cinematography’ (Wally Pfister), and ‘Art Direction & Production Design’ – 3 wins out of 11 nominations.
But good news is that they uploaded Marion’s acceptance speech from when she won ‘Best Actress’ on December 16, 2007 for her performance in ‘La Vie en Rose‘. She wasn’t able to attend but recorded this lovely message from Paris.

Paris Match Scans & Back to School
As promised, I added scans of the new feature about Marion Cotillard and Maud Fontenoy in the latest issue of Paris Match. Unfortunately, the version of the cover with the 2 of them is only for the digital issue. The actual printed magazine has Prince William & Kate on the cover. So the quality of the cover in the gallery is not the best.
Kindly do not redistribute the magazine scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were scanned exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
A few months ago, on October 8 – on a Friday after having taped the Vivement Dimanche show and skipped a local ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ premiere due to being too sick to attend earlier the same week – Marion Cotillard accompanied Maud Fontenoy to the Collège Valmy in Paris for the launch of the project ‘Saving Marine Biodiversity’. Also present were French Ecology Minister Jean-Louis Borloo and French Paris commissioner of education, Patrick Gerard. The Maud Fontenoy Foundation is supplying the educational kit to 7 031 schools in France. Marion Cotillard said that when she was the same age as the students there was no talk of biodiversity at school. Back then, people didn’t realize yet that the planet is degrading. So she encouraged the students to lern about the issue so that their generation can make a difference. Smilingly, she noted that seeing them learn about biodiversity makes her want to go back to school. Watch a video on Bioaddict.fr.

Mon Taratata à moi choosing David Bowie
On Friday evening a new episode of Mon Taratata à moi aired on France 2. That’s the version of the show where artists choose a performance by someone else from the Taratata archives for their personal Taratata show – while sitting in a photo booth. This time Marion Cotillard chose David Bowie because he’s a real genius and there’s really no need to say more about him.

Marion Cotillard on Taratata
France 4 & 2 finally aired the Taratata episode featuring Marion Cotillard. She appeared as Simone along with Yodelice for the song ‘More than meets the eye’ and then performed the David Bowie song ‘Velvet Goldmine’ as a duo with Yodelice. And then she was also interviewed. Rewatch the entire episode on MyTaratata.com.
She talked about her love of music and how she’s always had the dream to make music but it wasn’t until Yodelice aka Maxim Nucci pushed her that she’s living the dream. Yodelice was quick to praise her, saying that she’s very gifted and quick in learning how to play instruments by herself. She learned how to play the piano at home when she was little and how to play the cello for a film (‘Toi et moi‘) and now the guitar and bass guitar. When told not to minimalize her talents she explained that it was out of respect for musicians that she’s careful not to over emphasize her musical talents. When asked whether she dreamed of becoming a singer (musicienne) or an actress (comédienne) when she was a little girl she said she dreamed of being in musicals (comédies musicales). This lead to the music video Marion was in when she was 14 years old. She loved the song ‘Petite Fille’ a lot at the time and still loves the band Les Wampas. They joked that they could have a re-union on the show. Marion was also asked whether it’s imaginable that there’d be a solo album in the future and she said yes. The host joked that this probably means it’s already in preparation.
Here are links to things that were mentioned in the interview: Petite Fille (pictures, video), Milord duet with Jenifer (pictures, video) and The Eyes of Mars (pictures, video).

New Yodélice music video ‘Breathe In’
Yodélice’s new music video to the first song Breathe In on the new album is out! Watch the music video on UniversalMusic.fr. It features footage from the studio as well as live concerts – and really captures the atmosphere of seeing the band peform live! I’m not sure whether this is the final version or only a teaser – but for my taste it’s far too short!
