Another Cannes Festival has gone by, and with it, a veritable graduation slideshow’s worth of memories. Remember Adam Driver lighting a post-cinematic-musical-cunnilingual cigarette during his many-minutes-long standing ovation for Annette? And who can forget the late-breaking meme of l’été, courtesy of Wes Anderson and his French Dispatch buddies? Lee seemed to take a page from the 2021 Oscars ceremony when he seemed to accidentally announce the winner of the Palme d’Or before the other awards. How about the horny nun uproar over Benedetta? It’s enough to make you feel like you were there, if you consider Twitter a close-enough substitute for the French Riviera. Below is the list of winners from the ceremony. Palme d’Or: Titane, Julia Ducournau

Actor: Caleb Landry Jones, Nitram

Actress: Renate Reinsve, The Worst Person in the World

Director: Leos Carax, Annette

Grand Prix: A Hero, Asghar Farhadi and Compartment No. 6, Juho Kuosmanen

Jury Prize: Ahed’s Knee, Nadav Lapid and Memoria, Apichatpong Weerasethakul

Screenplay: Drive My Car, Ryusuke Hamaguchi and Takamasa Oe

And of course, the most prestigious honor of the festival was already presented yesterday:

Palm Dog: The Souvenir II, Snowbear, Rosie, and Dora (accepted on their behalf by Tilda Swinton)

Titane Director Julia Ducournau Doesn’t See Herself As a Provocateur

Tags: Tonight (because it’s night, Cannes-time), the 2021 Cannes Festival Jury helmed by Spike Lee announced its list of winning films and filmmakers from the competition. It went to Titane, directed by Julia Ducournau, making her the second female director in Cannes history to win the prize, after Jane Campion for The Piano in 1993.
