ABC News supports Cotillard

ABC gives their Oscar predictions. While they believe Christie will take the Oscar, they believe it should go to Cotillard.


Julie Christie ("Away from Her")
Cate Blanchett ("Elizabeth: The Golden Age")
Marion Cotillard ("La Vie En Rose")
Laura Linney ("The Savages")
Ellen Page ("Juno")

Who will win
Julie Christie

Who should win
Marion Cotillard

Veterans and newcomers crowd the best actress field, and the vote for who will win versus who should win is split between the two. Julie Christie, 66, holds Hollywood's respect for her roles in classics like 1965's "Doctor Zhivago" and 1963's "Darling," for which she won a best actress Oscar. Her performance in "Away From You" may sway the Academy to give her another.

"People in the industry think it's a terrific role, a terrific performance," said Gregg Goldstein, film reporter for The Hollywood Reporter. "They feel like she deserves it because of her career."

But French newcomer Marion Cotillard, 32, wowed critics with her poignant portrayal of Edith Piaf in "La Vie En Rose" and in January scored the best actress Golden Globe for the role.

"I think Marion Cotillard deserves to win," Vecchiarelli said. "There was something unsurprising about the fact that Julie Christie did a great job in her role."
