Very good week-end for Marion Cotillard ! For her portrayal of Édith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose,” she won the César for best actress on Friday night at the French equivalent of the Academy Awards, and the Best Actress Oscar last night in Los Angeles.
Last month, Marion Cotillard was also honored as best actress by the British Academy Film Awards. She also won a Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy or musical.
An amazing performance of Edith Piaf's life...a constant battle to sing, survive, live and love,... from the mean streets of the Belleville district of Paris to the dazzling limelight of New York’s most famous concert halls.
At France's Cesars on Friday, the Cesar for best actor went to Mathieu Amalric for his portrayal of Elle editor Jean-Dominique Bauby, who suffers a stroke and has to live with an almost totally paralyzed body, in Julian Schnabel's “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.”
"La Graine et le Mulet" ("The Secret of the Grain"), a witty social drama about North African immigrant families working in a southern French port town, won the best film award.
Franco-Tunisian filmmaker Abdelattif Kechiche won the Cesar for best director and original screenplay for the surprise hit, while Hafsia Herzi, 21, took the best upcoming actress award for her leading role in the film.
