Cotillard to get New York honour
Marion Cotillard will receive a tribute to her career at the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards.
The 37-year-old French actress will be presented with the glitzy gong at the 22nd ceremony, in celebration of her acclaimed career which includes her Oscar-winning performance as Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose as well as credits in The Dark Knight Rises and Contagion.
Marion, who will be at the London Film Festival for the premiere of her new French drama Rust And Bone, joins Matt Damon, director David O Russell and Participant Media's Jeff Skoll in receiving a career tribute, Variety reported.
"It is with pride and great pleasure that we give tribute to these luminaries, each of whom plays an amazing role in expanding the language of film, breaking boundaries along the way," said Joana Vicente, Executive Director of the Independent Film Project, which run the Gotham Awards.
"Each has a unique voice and clearly defined vision of cinema for the current generation, bringing perspective and relevance to the film world today."
The 22nd annual Gotham Awards, which celebrate independent film and kick of the awards season, will take place on November 26 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York.
