Marion Cotillard @ Oscars 2008

Modern mermaid Marion Cotillard (in Jean Paul Gaultier) arrives at the 2008 Oscars held at the Kodak Theatre on Sunday in Hollywood.

Cotillard, 32, picked up Best Actress in a Leading Role for her work in La Vie En Rose.

She broke down in years the moment her name was announced. Marion managed to get this out before walking offstage: “Thank you life! Thank you love! It is true there are some angels in this city. Thank you! Thank you so much!”

  • jexxica

    She really deserves it.

    It was so nice to see her winning it. I cried.

    She is the best

  • amber

    I’m so happy for her! She looked genuinely surprised. Right before she won I said she needs to win just for her amazing physical transformation – Marion is GORGEOUS and had to play someone…..yeah, not that gorgeous, lol. Now I have to see the movie – my French professor loved it and said it was amazing.

  • piper, with a low

    I loved her in La Vie en Rose.

    But what makes it better was her reaction to her win.

    So refreshingly emotional and genuine.

  • anja

    She’s gorgeous!

  • natalie

    she was so genuine on stage. she totally didnt think shed win. Congrats!

  • csxyz

    That was a beautiful moment. She looked gorgeous, too.

  • shiela

    Booooooooooooooooo. A brilliant actress? at what age 24 or 25? Good grief. How many movies has she made? anyone? I would of been happy if any of the other women won. Laura Linney should of gotten it…she has made so many good movies. Jennifer Hudson has a lot of comments on here under her name that apply here regarding this award last year going to her…another brillant actress?geeeez

  • Daisy

    YAYYY i’m so happy she won!
    i knew right after i saw the film that she deserved an oscar
    and she looks absolutely stunning!

    vive la mome marion!

  • LL

    Congrats on good work in a great film.

  • Hugo

    I loved her speech Congrats on the win you deserved it

  • Mafe

    shiela u idiota she’s 32, and has made over 32, the fact that u dont watch french movies doesnt mean she hasnt been in the film industry for a while and is perfectly deserving of the award !

  • elks

    Totally deserving. And to think she wasn’t the frontrunner and there was less hype about her than the other nominees.

  • leilo

    for #13
    look on IMDB marion has done a lot of movies , 43 projects in fact
    she’s 32 !
    congrats marion for your award, it’s totally deserved!
    she’s beautiful

  • dudes

    im glad the academy has chosen sheer power of performance over hype and age.

  • sandrine

    QUELLE PERFORMANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • anonymous

    she is soooooooo beautiful, brilliant actress, i love her and i am soooooooooo happy that she won the oscar. congr. to her.

  • anonymous

    and she deserved the oscar.

  • anonymous

    and i love her hair do and her dress is absolutely beautiful.

  • zim

    She won thanks to the Weinstein brothers they are the one who helped her without them she was nothing.

  • homey

    I love it when the underdog wins. In this age of empty celebrity and actresses being known more for the publicity hype than for actual real talent her win is so refreshing.

  • dudes

    je suis tellement ravi qu’elle a gagne!!! bravo marion. je suis un peu decu guillaume n’etait pas a cote de toi!

  • amber

    Well said, homey!

  • dirrtyboi

    Marion gave one of the best performance in oscar history.
    very well-deserved!

  • Ann

    For once the Oscars get it right. Marion gives the most incredible performance I have ever seen as Edith Piaf. Well done!

  • anonymous

    i am glad she won the oscar she deserved it, and she is so gorgeous, and i loved her hair do and her dress was absolulety beautiful.

  • lily

    So well deserved. I didn’t see this one coming. I just didnt’ think they would honor her in this category, thought it would be under foreign film or something.

  • Kristya

    No one deserved it more. Best dressed of the night too! She is so amazing.

  • lola

    Sheila you are an idiot. You should not comment of things you know nothing about. She has been in the French film industry for a very long time. Look it up smarty pants.


    she seemed very likeable…watching her after-oscar interview and said she felt weird for a month of talking about herself because it’s not something she wants to do…she thinks that the movie should be able to just speak for itself…so all the campaigning is weird for her because they don’t do that in France.

    Congrats to all the winners!

  • hmm

    gorgeous dress, she’s beautiful

  • lana

    so to win an Oscar a beautiful actress has to play dress up ugly hmmm…..

  • Staffo

    Absolutely brilliant actress!!! I love her! Great performance! Can’t describe my joy when they announced her name! I literally had an orgasm of the heart!!! :D

  • Marieme

    Congratulations to Marion! What a charming and delightful person. She is a welcome breath of fresh air to these ceremonies and I hope to see much more of her. (Can’t believe how well she has learned to speak English. Must be hard.)

  • Marion

    Yayy I’m so happy she won! I’m french so I’m very proud she, as a french actress I love, could win an Oscar, it’s so huge! I’ve almost seen all of her movies and she’s the best ever, she has a real talent, which is being rare in France now… And this is totally random, but my name’s Marion too, so it makes me love her even more haha! Congrats!!

  • nona

    loved her in “Love me if you dare!” She’s a great actress and wowza, what a dress.

  • Jo

    She looks super great ! <3

  • jj

    Wonderful , Breath Taking. see la mome its exuleratin i kid u not!

  • Karen

    She deserved it more than anybody this year. She is authentic and her speech was beautiful. Congratulations to Marion!

  • choux

    all who think she didn’t deserve this win (shiela/zim) obviously have not yet seen the movie. Marion was amazing in the role of Edith… and for such a beautiful actress to go through that transformation was mesmerizing!

  • anonymous

    we all know she deserved the oscar , except for couple of jealous haters and it is so transparent where their jealousy coming from so we better ignor those two.

  • Orange soda

    she is amazing… I love her movies! and I am super glad she won!! She deseved it!

  • postwatcher

    Ariel called…she wants her fin back.

  • lisa lorcan

    Lovely actress…toatlly deserving and a refreshing and sweet sweet acceptance speech. So happy she won and NOT Julie Christie who had on a orange ribbon in solidarity with the ACLU to close the prison in Guantano bay……NO ONE wants your politics at the Oscars.

  • LT

    My favorite performance of the year!! So glad she was recognized.
    She was utterly brilliant!! Still thought Angie should have been nominated too. Ellen Page needs to pay more dues. Why do they nominate so young? I disagree with that. Give her time to prove herself and build a body of work.
