I hate to say I told you so, so I won't. I think a certain prize speaks for itself.
Palme D'or: The White Ribbon, director Michael Haneke - cannot wait to see this
Grand Prix: Un Prophète, director Jacques Audiard
Best Director: Brillante Mendoza for Kinatay - controversy in three...two...seriously, Ebert claims it's the worst film ever in the history of Cannes; he even retracts his indictment of The Brown Bunny; harsh words
Best Screenplay: Feng Mei for Spring Fever
Best Actress: Charlotte Gainsbourgh for Antichrist - controvery...averted; thanks, Kinatay; another von Trier survivor winning awards
Best Actor: Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds - Christ, we knew Tarrantino couldn't spell, but you'd think someone would point out the migraine inducing mistakes in that title; I know, he says there's a good reason for it that he will never ever explain, not even if you hold your breath until your face turns blue
