Cannes: Complete list of winners includes ‘Dheepan,’ ‘Carol,’ ‘The Lobster,’ …

Winners were announced on Sunday for the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, and the top prize, the coveted Palme d’Or, went to Jacques Audiard‘s French film “Dheepan.” This is the first time Audiard has won the award following three unsuccessful attempts (“A Self-Made Hero” in 1996, “A Prophet” in 2009 and “Rust and Bone” in 2012), though he did previously win a screenwriting award for “Self-Made Hero” and the Grand Prix for “A Prophet.”

His last two entries lost to films by Michael Haneke –  “The White Ribbon” in 2009 and “Amour” in 2012 – so in his speech, Audiard thanked Haneke “for not making a film this year.”

Oscars next for Cannes winners Rooney Mara, Emmanuelle Bercot and Vincent Lindon?

This year, Oscar-winning directors Joel and Ethan Coen presided over the jury, which also included international actors Rossy de Palma, Sophie Marceau, Sienna Miller and Jake Gyllenhaal; directors Guillermo Del Toro and Xavier Dolan; and composer Rokia Traore.

This year’s Grand Prix went to Hungary’s “Son of Saul” by first-time feature film director Laszlo Nemes. The film is set in 1944 in the Auschwitz concentration camp during the Holocaust.

The Jury Prize went to “The Lobster,” directed by Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos, whose film “Dogtooth” won the Un Certain Regard Award and the Award of the Youth in 2009. “Dogtooth” was later nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2010. His “Lobster” features Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz and tells the story of a dystopian near future in which single people are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days or are transformed into animals and released into the woods.

Best Director was Hou Hsiao-hsien for Taiwan’s “The Assassin.” This was Hou’s seventh film selected for the main competition at Cannes, but he has yet to win the Palme d’Or. He previously won the Jury Prize for “The Puppetmaster” in 1993.

Best Screenplay went to Mexican filmmaker Michel Franco for “Chronic.” His last film, “After Lucia,” earned him the Un Certain Regard award in 2012.

French actor Vincent Lindon won Best Actor for “The Measure of a Man,” while Best Actress was awarded in a tie to Emmanuelle Bercot for “Mon roi” and Oscar-nominated American actress Rooney Mara for director Todd Haynes‘s buzzed-about entry “Carol.”

Will Cannes hit ‘Youth’ bring Michael Caine, Jane Fonda back to Oscars?
