The most prestigious award that can be won at Cannes is the Palme d’Or. This year the recipient of the Palme d’Or was Ruben Östlund’s film Triangle of Sadness. Additionally, the Palme d’Or for Best Short Film was awarded to The Water Murmurs, and the Camera d’Or went to Riley Keough and Gina Gammell for their work on War Pony.
Though this year two other Palme d’Ors were also handed out. American actor and Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker was given a Palme d’Or for his amazing career, and closer to the beginning of the festival Tom Cruise was presented with an honorary Palme d’Or while he was in Cannes promoting Top Gun: Maverick.
