Marion Cottilard Gets Best Actress Oscar Award
The Oscar results are out. Marion Cotillard, who won the Oscar for best actress for her role in the Edith Piaf biopic “La Vie en Rose”, is the first French woman to take home the best actress Oscar since Simone Signoret’s win in 1960.
Cotillard is a Greenpeace spokeswoman and was among the artists involved in “Dessins pour le climat,” an album project that was released in 2005 and raised money for the environmental activist group.
The LA News film critic describes the glittering ceremony “as the most boring in memory”. But even then the 80-year-old Oscar event is eagerly awaited far and wide. “No Country for Old Men” won best picture at the Academy Awards on Sunday night, with brothers Joel and Ethan Coen winning best director and best adapted screenplay for the film and Javier Bardem taking home best supporting actor for his portrayal of a sociopathic killer.
