An all-European foursome takes home acting honors at Sunday’s Oscars — France’s Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose), England’s Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood), England’s Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton), and Spain’s Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men). Backstage, they pose for a collective moment of celebration.
Best Actress Marion Cotillard, whose role as Edith Piaf transformed her into a dowdy street hustler to beloved songbird to frail invalid, delivers one of the night’s most genuine speeches.
Tilda Swinton rises in surprise when she’s named Best Supporting Actress for her role in Michael Clayton, arguably the night’s biggest upset. Swinton beat out favorites Cate Blanchett (I’m Not There) and Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone) to take home her first Oscar.
Daniel Day-Lewis kneels to The Queen (Helen Mirren) to accept the Oscar for Best Actor.
Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard win the Oscar for Best Song, but Irglova’s speech is cut off. Host Jon Stewart breaks precedence by bringing Irglova back onstage, where she delivers another of the night’s more plaintive, heartfelt thank yous.
