Cannes 2010: Uncle Boonmee wins the Palme D’or

Javier Bardem and Juliette Binoche also win big…

 

Well, another Cannes Film Festival has set sail. And after a week and a half of film screenings (and the adventures of our TF bods over in sunny France), we finally have some award winners.

Top prize this year went to Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, which surely would also have won the award for ‘Coolest Title In The Competition’ if such a prize existed.

Instead, Boonmee took home the coveted Palme D’Or for its moving, imaginative stylings. Meanwhile, Javier Bardem scooped the acting prize for his stellar turn in Biutiful, and festival darling Juliette Binoche earned herself a gong for her performance in Certified Copy.

Sadly, not a single English-speaking film nabbed an award. Check out the full list below...
