Oscar History: One win from one nomination
Won: Best Actress in a Leading Role for La vie en Rose (2007)

Oscar Present?
Role: Ewa, an immigrant forced into prostitution – and into a strange relationship with her pimp and his cousin

Awards:

Nominations: N/A

Festivals:

  • Cannes Film Festival (2013) – World Premiere; In Competition
  • New York Film Festival (2013)

Why? Cotillard hasn’t been back since her 2007 win; maybe it’s time for a comeback. This performance snagged her a year-end honor…

Why not? Along with her work in Two Days, One Night. Her French-language performances gain more awards traction traditionally – and even then, Cotillard’s Rust and Bone (2011) performance missed Oscar’s lineup, despite getting in with Globe, SAG, and BAFTA. Her performances might split votes

Ranking: No. 11 as of Dec. 1, 2014
