Thanks so much to Pierrick for sending in these lovely scans of a recent feature on Marion:
We'll have an English translation soon for those of you who (like me) only have a basic understanding of the beautiful French language.
kvc has been keeping us quite busy and very generously sent out the following article on the BAFTA results. Here's an excerpt:
Cotillard's performance as Edith Piaf in "La Vie En Rose" has earned her quite a lot of admirers, if not many statuettes. Canadian Ryan Gosling gushed to Variety in December that, "Not only did she craft a flawless impersonation of a famous personality, but Marion's humanity elevated her performance to a devastatingly honest and yet seemingly effortless personification of integrity and grace.
"To me, this is more than just a great performance; it's a document of this actress's overwhelming ability to love."
Finally, Amely directed us to a beautiful scan of Time Magazine's piece on Marion last month (you might remember my crappy black and white scan). Here's the image in all its glory:
Then we have a link to Time's Oscar predictions. They maintain that Marion will take the Oscar, but don't celebrate just yet, they then say Julie Christie "should win." But don't hate on them too much, they do say that Keira Knightley was robbed. I tend to agree; I wish I could have seen her nominated. I was never a big fan until I saw "Atonement" last year and I was thoroughly impressed.
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to send us kind thoughts; it is much appreciated!
