    This foreign film will play at Telluride this week after earning raves at Cannes. Marion Cotillard is a Best Actress frontrunner.

    Here’s the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRQyuzcg_Pk

    Hum, there were some raves, but they were in no way the consensus for this film. Response was really mixed, as I remember.

    I want to see Marion Cotillard among the nominees. Since Tilda Swinton and Marion Cotillard won in 2008, they have been cursed. They had baity roles but never made it to the top five again.
    Last year, this curse was about to change with Swinton, but it didn’t happen. Right now, it’s up to Marion! Go, girl!

    I think that, if Cotillard’s performance in this film is as amazing as early reviews are making it out to be, and if Best Actress is as weak of a category as we all think it is, Cotillard might be winning her second Oscar. Her main competition (now that Laura Linney’s film has been screened to tepid reviews) is Keira Knightley, and since Anna Karenina has extremely high bomb potential, a second Oscar for Cotillard is turning into a real possibility.

    On the topic of the “curse” brought up, Tilda Swinton should’ve received her second nomination for I Am Love, replacing Helen Mirren in the Best Actress category in 2010. I still would have picked Mara and Close over her in 2012. As for Marion, she should’ve had Penelope Cruz’s nomination in 2010 for Nine, and Melissa Leo’s nomination in 2011 for Inception.

    Her second nomination for Julia, third for I Am Love and her second award for We Need to talk About Kevin.

    I still think Swinton > Streep last year (most years). Sad. I wonder if the Academy is waiting for Cotillard to carry a movie the way she did in La Mome in order for her to come back as a nominee. She really hasn’t been given another role like that yet.

    I’d LOVE for Marion to get another Oscar nomination, but it’s going to be an uphill battle what with it being in a foreign language and all. Here’s hoping!

    I’ve seen Rust & Bone and can assure you that Marion Cotillard gives the only Oscar worthy female performance I’ve seen this year– another heroic, dynamic, physically challenging performance from the daring French Oscar winner. I really believe she will be nominated
    & possibly win, especially if expected contenders like Linney fall by the wayside as the award-bait films finally arrive, and, as is often the case, underwhelm critics and audiences. Rust and Bone has going for it, in addition to Cotillard fearless performance, very restless and dynamic visuals, and has a frank, unsentimental eroticism and physicality that is riveting; a heady meditation on physical and emotional handicaps, it’s both gritty and rhapsodic, as what you might expect from Jaques Audiard, the director of A Prophet: the roughhouse world he depicts is definitely not your Mama’s France!

    I currently have Marion in my top five, though it depends in the succeeding months. Among all her post La Vie En Rose performances, the only one I’d nominate is Nine.But yes, she deserves a second Oscar nomination.

    There is an excellent chance there will be two French language best actress nominees this year, and Emmanuelle Seigneur might be competitive as well.

    I think Sophia Loren was nominated for 2 Italian Language performances so it is possible. If everything is right, she has it in a bag

    We could get the same lead acting winners as we had five years ago, DDL and MC, I would to see that as those two performances in 2007 were in the top 5 winning of the oscars of all time for me.

    Still think acting categories should be reserved, if possible, for English-language nominees.  Sorry for being provincial, but it’s what I believe.  I guess Ellen Page losing to Cotillard back in the day still grates. There’s 5 of those out there, if you know where to look.
