Cotillard began acting during her childhood, appearing on stage in one of her father's plays. After a few roles on television, her career as a film actress began in the mid-1990s with small roles in such films as Lisa, War In The Highlands, La Belle Verte, or Furia among other participations in established directors' productions. She rose to prominence in the late 1990s when she was cast in Taxi (1998), a minor role that she reprised in two sequels. She then earned very good reviews and the attention of cinephiles via her portrayal in Les Jolies Choses/Pretty Things. In 2003, she had a small role in Big Fish, which introduced her to English-speaking audiences. She also played in Jeux d'enfants (Love Me If You Dare). She appeared in two critically successful films in 2004: A Very Long Engagement, garnering the César Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, and the drama mystery Innocence.2005 saw Abel Ferrara offering her a small role in his religious movie Mary while she also played in Burnt Out. In 2006, she appeared in A Good Year, Belgian comedy Dikkenek and learnt to play the cello for her role in You and Me.

She was chosen by director Olivier Dahan to portray the iconic French singer Édith Piaf in the biopic La Môme (La Vie En Rose) before he had even met her. Her portrayal was widely praised, including by the eminent theatre director Sir Trevor Nunn, who described it as "one of the greatest performances on film ever." It was dubbed "the most awaited film of 2007" in France, where some critics said that she had reincarnated Édith Piaf to sing one last time on stage.

On February 10, 2008, Cotillard became the first French actress to be awarded the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role since the BAFTAs in 1969 combined the Best British and Best Foreign actress award into one Best Actress category. She is also the first actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for a French language performance since Catherine Deneuve. She is the first actress to win a Golden Globe for a foreign language performance since 1972. She is also the very first person to win a (Comedy or Musical) Golden Globe for a foreign language performance. As La Vie En Rose was also a Czech production, Marion Cotillard was nominated for the Czech Lion for "Best Actress in a Leading Role" on February 21.

On February 22, 2008 she was awarded the César Award for Best Actress, and two days later she received the Academy Award for Best Actress. After Simone Signoret in 1959, Marion Cotillard is the second French cinema actress to win an Academy Award for Best Actress, though French expatriate Claudette Colbert was given an Oscar in 1934. She is the first Best Actress winner in a non-English language performance since Sophia Loren's win in 1961. She is also the first and so far only winner of an Academy Award for a performance in the French language. On March 1, 2008, Cotillard won the Czech film industry's highest acting honor, the Czech Lion Award for Best Actress.

Cotillard has been cast to play Luisa Contini in the film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical Nine.
