Cannes Announces Winners of the 77th Film Festival & Surprise Palme d’Or

The 77th Cannes Film Festival has announced its list of winners, and it’s quite a surprising collection. No single film swept, with the great Jacques Audiard’s film Emilia Perez being the only title to win multiple awards. That movi stars Karla Sofa Gascn, Zoe Saldaa, Selena Gomez and Adriana Paz, and is considered one of the most divisive movies to premiere at Cannes. Perhaps the biggest surprise, though, was the Palme d’Or given to Anora, a screwball romantic comedy imbued with a dose of deep emotion. That film comes from Sean Baker, the acclaimed filmmaker behind The Florida Project, Red Rocket, and Tangerine. This is the first American film to win the Palme d’Or since 2011’s The Tree of Life.
