More PSIFF photos; Cotillard won't cross picket line @ GGs

A Socialite's Life has two photos posted of Marion on the Palm Springs International Film Festival red carpet (click on thumbnails for larger image):

And here is a snippet about the Golden Globes, where Marion is a nominee, and the ongoing writer's strike (also from A Socialite's Life):

The red carpeters were asked about the possibility that there might not be a Golden Globe awards ceremony next week due to the ongoing writer's strike. It took a Frenchwoman to keep it real. "La Vie En Rose" star Marion Cotillard said she wouldn't be crossing the picket line despite not even being an actor's guild member. "I think that everyone involved in a project should share the benefit of it," said Cotillard in regards to the writers' demands to receive more shares of the proceeds from projects.
It is a little disappointing we won't get to see Marion, a first-time nominee (though it's doubtful it'll be her last time at the Globes), collect her Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical/Comedy Globe, though her solidarity towards the WGA's mission is very admirable.

And remember -- Tonight the BFCA's (Critics Choice Awards) air at 9 P.M. EST on VH1. As this is not a struck event, most -- if not all -- nominees are expected to attend. Marion is nominated for Best Actress, and La Vie en Rose is up for Best Foreign Language Film.

Problem is, that even though she is a great actress, this may be the last (or last for quite a while) time she gets nominated for these awards. Look at Juilette Bionache. You know what a political racket is. Looks like it may go ahead now, just without the cameras, which is good.
