BIG upset! Huge upset!

Julie Christie was rolling over everyone this season – and it was thought to be a done deal at the BAFTAs too. She is British after all.

But it was Marion Cotillard tonight who surprised everyone. On the carpet and on stage.

Note the tears in her eyes in the press room, completely stunned by her victory. And of course the Chanel dress. LOVE the wings of the angel! Not for everyone, certainly not for most. But for a French girl, with intangible French style and grace, that signature French overbite and that je ne sais quoi… it works. It totally works.

Can’t wait to see her at the Oscars!!

And on the romantic side of things – Guillaume Canet was with her! Squeal! Click here to watch Marion’s adorable acceptance speech and here to watch her interview afterwards.

George Clooney is an idiot.
