Cannes Film Festival Award Winners 2008

Cannes Film Festival - The Class

Wrapping up our coverage of the Cannes Film Festival this year is the announcement of the big winners. This year's jury was lead by Sean Penn and also included actress Natalie Portman and director Alfonso CuarĂ³n. Neither Steven Soderbergh's Che nor Clint Eastwood's Changeling managed to get any top nods, but each did win a minor award, with Eastwood taking home a special Prix de 61st Festival de Cannes and Che's lead actor Benicio Del Toro taking home the Prix D'interpretation Masculine. The winner of the Palme d'Or this year is a film titled The Class (photo above), a fictional feature shot in a documentary style about a Paris junior high school. Read on for the complete list of winners below.
