It turns out the only US channel carrying the Cannes Ceremonie de Cloture is TV5Monde--and in LA you have to subscribe (in advance) on Time Warner Cable to all the French channels to get it. Oh well. And I wasn't able to get it live on Canal Plus online--they'll edit it together for tomorrow, it seems. Which leaves IndieWire, reporting live.

Here are the winners--Sony Pictures Classics pre-bought Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon before Cannes, and acquired Jacques Audiard's A Prophet at the festival:

Palme d’Or: “The White Ribbon,” directed by Michael Haneke

Grand Prix (runner-up): “The Prophet,” directed by Jacques Audiard

Prix Exceptional du Jury (Special Jury Prize): Alain Resnais, director of “Wild Grass”

Prix de la Mise en Scene (best director): Brillante Mendoza, director of “Kinatay”

Prix du Scenario (best screenplay): Feng Mei for “Spring Fever” (directed by Lou Ye)

Camera d’Or (best first feature): “Samson and Delilah,” directed by Warwick Thornton

Camera d’Or Special Mention: “Ajami”

Prix du Jury (jury prize) - TIED: “Fish Tank,” directed by Andrea Arnold and “Thirst,” directed by Park Chan-wook

Prix d’interpretation feminine (best actress): Charlotte Gainsbourg for “Antichrist” (directed by Lars von Trier)
