I’ve diligently transferred all the existing video clips of Marion at public appearances from the old to the new archive – bringing the total count in the new archive to 110. I’ve also added 4 new clips: 2006 Cannes Festival, 2007 Hollywood Awards Interview (by a rather ignorant reporter…) and 2009 Oscars Backstage & Red Carpet.
And here’s the transcript of what Marion said to Kate Winslet during the recent Oscar ceremony:
Kate Winslet, with each new role you continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Your brilliant performance in “The Reader” encompasses all the qualities that have always drawn us to you: passion, vulnerability and extraordinary depth. As your character move through time, love and the most dire of circumstances we, as your audience Kate, never lose a connection to you. This is yet another unforgettable portrait from one of our most gifted actresses and one of our most inspiring. Thank you!
And something cute I found online:
Fresh off her emotional acceptance speech, best actress Oscar winner Kate Winslet was still shaking when she came backstage.
“Oh my God. Oh my god. Did I make any sense?” she asked presenter Marion Cotillard.
“Totally. Don’t worry,” Cotillard, last year’s winner, told her.
“I’ve got to phone my kids,” Winslet, still shaking, said as she headed toward a hallway.
