jamie and i got in sunday night just in time to watch the oscar's on the dvr and were so excited to see 2 of our favorites win.
marion cotillard for la vie en rose...now we can't say we are avid edith piaf fans, but we always try to see the nominated films and performances (within reason). this film is quite heavy, but an amazing performance by both cotillard and the oscar winning makeup team for their transformation of cotillard from her adorable self to the french icon. even if you aren't exactly up on piaf's troubled life (we weren't), the performance is amazing and uncanny. she dove into this role headfirst, shaved her eyebrows and everything. if you've seen her in big fish or a good year then see la vie en rose, you'll see what i mean.
julie christie was the favorite to win, which we do want to see her performance in away from her, but we couldn't help root for the underdog and lesser known cotillard here.
we were also pumped to see glen hansard and marketa irglova win for best song. quite a feat to beat out alan menken's 3 nominations for enchanted!
