Marion on the rise...
In more news about Marion Cotillard (you'd think I was obsessed), she's going to recieve the Hollywood Film Award for Lead Actress this year, which is the first award given out of the season. As a whole, the Hollywood Film Award doesn't really mean a whole lot, but it is at least keeping Marion in the conversation, which is important at this stage in the race. Of the winners over the past decade, Kidman (for Moulin Rouge!), Bening (for both Being Julia and The Kids are All Right), Theron (for North Country), Cruz (for Volver) and Williams (for My Week With Marilyn) have all gone on to Oscar nominations. Cotillard herself won this in 2007 and went on the win the Oscar. Still, for every Oscar nominee, there is a Hilary Swank in Amelia or Jennifer Aniston in The Good Girl. Looking over these stats though, the odds are in her favor, and in such a weak year (for Oscar potentials) this could really prove to be the jump start to a solid awards season for her.
After the heartbreaking news the other day with regard to the French Oscar player, this comes as a nice counterbalance to the odds against this amazing actress.
