Winter Sleep picked up the Palm d’Or at Cannes, with awards also going to Julianne Moore and Timothy Spall. All the results right here.
It’s been a huge 11 days at the Cannes Film Festival and with some great premieres, done deals and emerging talent, it has come to a close for 2014. This year’s big winner was the film Winter Sleep, picking up the coveted Palm d’Or. The award was given to Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan by a previous winner Quinton Tarantino (for Pulp Fiction in 1994). The film is an epic tale of marriage.
Julianne Moore won the award for best actress for her role in David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, whilst British actor Timothy Spall won the award for best actor for his performance in Mike Leigh’s Mr. Tuner.
The best director award went to Bennett Miller for his oft-delayed but hotly tipped Foxcatcher, which stars Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum.
Two awards were given out for the Jury Prize. They went to Mommy by Xavier Dolan and Goodbye to Language by Jean-Luc Goddard.
Levithan won the award for best screenplay, whilst Party Girl won the award for best feature by a first-time director.
A good year for Cannes.
