As we previously reported, Marion will be one of the honorees at tonight's Palm Springs International Film Festival. Marion is being honored with the Breakthrough Performance Award:
Before her widely hailed role as tragic French chanteuse Edith Piaf in this year's "La Vie en Rose" - a depiction for which she will be receiving the festival's Breakthrough Performance Award - Cotillard had starred in nearly 50 TV shows and films (mostly in France), including Tim Burton's "Big Fish" in 2003, and "A Good Year" opposite Russell Crowe in 2006.
Other honorees include Halle Berry, Sean Penn, and Emile Hirsch (!)
As far as I know, this isn't a "struck" event, so all honorees are expected to attend. This is welcome news after the latest developments in the awards stratosphere (no actors are expected to attend either the Broadcast Film Critics -- originally scheduled to be aired on Monday night, or the Golden Globe Awards). We will keep you posted on the latest developments and, for what it's worth, wish the WGA the best of luck in their battle with AMPTA.
