LONDON, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- "La Vie En Rose" earned four Orange British Academy Film Awards in London Sunday.

Marion Cotillard won the award for Leading Actress for her portrayal of iconic French singer Edith Piaf, while the movie also garnered prizes for music, costume design, and hair and makeup.

Cotillard beat out "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" actress Cate Blanchett; "Away from Her" star Julie Christie; "Atonement" heroine Keira Knightley; and "Juno" newcomer Ellen Page for the Leading Actress honor.

"Wow. Wow. Wow. Thank you so much for giving this to me, BAFTA," Cotillard said as she took the stage to collect her prize. "It has been the most incredible adventure. I loved every single second of the shooting -- of all this adventure."
