Reassuring Marion of my love…

It has started again fellow, bloggers. People bitching about her Oscar win almost 2 years ago! It’s a trend encouraged by a certain blogger and I’m posting this just to make my perspective clear.

.
Say what you want, but to me it’s simple. Marion’s Oscar winning performance as Edith Piaf is one the best this category has EVER seen. The makeup helped a lot, but look beyond that: it’s a heartbreaking, emotional, well-balanced, efficient performance! The scene where she realizes her lover had died is one of the most emotionally devastating scenes this decade had given us!
.
I don’t know how good she is in Nine and I’ll be as objective as I can when time comes! And yes, Julie Christie was great in Away from Her but that’s no reason to hate Marion’s win! To me, she REALLY deserved it!
.

Thank you, Marion for your inspiring performance! And let’s hope the bitching slowly goes away as people realize what a magnificent performance you’ve given us!

[this post has no intention to upset people. :) just fighting back, with love, as I feel there’s not enough support out there]

I don't know why people hate on this win so much. And even if they didn't love the win, how can anyone hate Marion Cotillard? She's so un-hateable.

I agree. Her performance is huge and the perfect showpiece for a whirlwind of a film.

Concurred. Marion is a brilliant, beautiful actress. She has become one of my favorite modern performers. Her youth and beauty should not take points away from her talent. I thought she stole the show in Public Enemies as well.

I agree. Terrific performance. Bravo.

Meredith that's definitely a given. As much as I like Depp, Marion was flawless and stood above all in Public Enemies.

I don't think that a lot of people hate this win. But the movie was AWFUL.

I definitely don't agree on the movie being awful, but it's hard for me to be objective on it, as it's my type of movie :)

Nice to see all this Marion love.

I have Public Enemies, but I just didn't get the opportunity to see it.

Thank you very much for this post. Marion deserves love for her brilliant and DESERVING performance.

She is awesome in Public Enemies. If you're a big fan of hers, I'd recommend watching that as soon as possible. It's a very flawed script, but Depp and Cotillard are irresistible when they are on screen together.
