Winners of Cannes filmfestival!

After two weeks filled with nonstop film screenings, the winners of the 77th Cannes Film Festival were finally revealed at a gala ceremony on Saturday night.

The festival’s highest award, the Palme d’Or, was given to Sean Baker for his screwball comedy about a sex worker, "Anora." When accepting the award, a visibly nervous Baker expressed his disbelief and gratitude to the jury. He mentioned that achieving this accolade has been his primary goal as a filmmaker for the past 30 years.

Baker also paid tribute to veteran directors Francis Ford Coppola and David Cronenberg, who also had films in the competition this year, citing them as key inspirations. Baker's filmmaking journey has been extraordinary, transitioning from shooting his 2015 film "Tangerine" on an iPhone 5s to receiving the Palme d’Or. He is the first American director to win this prestigious award since Terrence Malick won it in 2011 for "The Tree of Life."
