The jury's out: "The White Ribbon" won the Palme. But here's some fun gossip on the deliberations, care of a comment by Shane Danielsen on this AV Club wrap up.. apparently Huppert "remained 'Antichrist's biggest champion on a bitterly divided and fractious jury" and that she was "riding roughshod over everyone, and James Grey reportedly calling her a "fascist bitch" in their final meeting." Juicy. Danielsen notes his sources too: "two highly-placed friends in the (French) industry, at least one of whom was being kept appraised of jury movements and deliberations, in order to co-ordinate the possible return of talent to accept awards, if necessary. Though my buddy Manohla Dargis told me, as we sat in the Debussy, that, like a good journalist, she'd gotten two separate sources of confirmation in the four hours since I'd mentioned it to her."
