Cannes Film Festival 2021: Full List of Winners




Cannes 2021 shall be a memory for the audience in so many ways but for obvious reasons, how it officially saw and end.

The Jury President, Spike Lee went a little overboard and made an announcement of Palme d’Or winner Titane. This was an accident and only later, names of all the best performances and films were released.

Spike Lee was the president and there were many other jury members that included Mati Diop, the director; Mylene Farmer, singer; Melanie Laurent, actress/director; Maggie Gyllenhaal, actress/director; Kleber Mendonça Filho, writer/director; Song Kang-ho, actor; Jessica Hausner, writer/director; and actor Tahar Rahim.

Moving forward, you will find the full list of winners.

Cannes 2021 – Here’s the ”Winners” List!

Surely Lee slipped her tongue, only to later apologize.

Spike Lee added – “In 63 years of life I’ve learned that people get a second chance, this is my second chance,” he said. “I apologize for messing up. It took a lot of suspense out of the night I understand, it wasn’t on purpose.”

Sharon Stone, the final stage, later joined the stage soon after which the winner announcement took place.

The top prize was for Palme d’Or.
