Congratulations to Marion Cotillard who has just won the Best Actress Academy Award for her tour-de-force performance as Edith Piaf in LA MOME (LA VIE EN ROSE). I feared she would lose to the favourite Julie Christie for AWAY FROM HER but as fine as Christie was I was disappointed in the film which suggested that the depth of her character's Alzheimer's Disease was little more than a sweet bafflement.

Cotillard on the other hand gave a performance which was dazzling in it's bravery, depth and commitment.
