Cannes Film Festival Winners Full List

On Saturday night, Swedish filmmaker Ruben Stlund led one of his now-famous primal screams inside the Palais as his latest film, Triangle of Sadness, was awarded the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or. This is Stlund’s second time winning the prestigious award, following The Square in 2017.

Stlund tonight joined an elite group of filmmakers who have won two Palmes, including the Dardenne brothers, who were honored this evening with a special 75th anniversary prize for their film Tori And Lokita.

In contrast to last year’s wild and wacky Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony, tonight’s event was a very straightforward affair. Neon acquired Triangle of Sadness for North America earlier this week. Stephanie Bunbury of Deadline described it as “a mission statement about equality: that it doesn’t exist, that it can’t exist, that while calamity may bring down the top dogs, new curs will replace them and behave in exactly the same way.”

Close by young Belgian filmmaker Lukas Dhont, which tied for the Grand Prize with veteran Claire Denis and her Stars At Noon, was also a winner. Notably, Korea performed well once more. Park Chan-wook was named Best Director for Decision To Leave, while Hirokazu Kore-first eda’s Korean-language film, Broker, won Best Actor for Parasite’s Song Kang-ho.

Before presenting the awards, jury president Vincent Lindon made a notable mention of the panels’ need for a longer run, saying, “We need four more years!” to rousing applause.

The 75th Cannes Film Festival concludes tonight, with the main awards, including the Palme d’Or, to be presented in the Palais. Scroll down to see the winners’ list, which will be updated as prizes are announced. This year’s festival was a return to normalcy after Covid messed up the event for two years, canceling it in 2020 and moving it to July 2021.

This year’s competition featured 21 films, including works by David Cronenberg (Crimes Of The Future) and James Gray (Armageddon Time), as well as Hirokazu Kore-eda (Broker), who won the Palme d’Or with Shoplifters in 2018. All of them were well received. The buzz for tonight’s awards is perhaps highest on titles like Lukas Dhont’s Close, Park Chan-Decision wook’s To Leave, the Dardenne brothers’ Tori And Lokita, and 2017 Palme laureate Ruben Ostlund’s Triangle Of Sadness.

While Triangle Of Sadness was somewhat divisive, and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s Forever Young was largely panned, the competition films found fans over the past two weeks, which were awash in sun-dappled starry red carpets.

This evening’s out-of-competition premieres include Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis and Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, which was treated to a fireworks display and French fighter jets soaring above the Palais — the film is currently soaring at the global box office. This year’s Cannes jury is led by French actor Vincent Lindon, with Rebecca Hall, Deepika Padukone, Noomi Rapace, Jasmine Trinca, Asghar Farhadi, Lady Ly, Jeff Nichols, and Joachim Trier as members. Let’s hope no one does a Spike Lee and announces the Palme d’Or winner too soon, as happened last year.

Every year in Cannes, the outcome is unpredictable, and Lindon’s jury could go in any direction. We’ll know more in a moment, so check so check back as we update the winners below:
