After a week-and-a-half of red carpets, press conferences, parties, and screenings, the 2013 Cannes Film Festival has come to a close. The Palme D'Or, Cannes' most prestigious prize — the fest's equivalent of "Best Picture" — went to director Abdellatif Kechiche's Blue Is the Warmest Color.
20 films made the final cut for the awards, and jury president Steven Spielberg, presiding over an all-star roster of voters including Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee, Christoph Waltz, and Daniel Auteuil, handed out the prizes, along with Mistress of Ceremonies Audrey Tautou. Best Actor went to Bruce Dern for his stirring turn in Alexander Payne's Nebraska. Best Actress to Bérénice Bejo for her role in A Separation director Asghar Farhadi's new film The Past. And the much-buzzed-about new film from Joel & Ethan Coen, Inside Llewyn Davis, about New York City's folk-music scene in the early 1960s, grabbed the Grand Prix, basically the runner-up prize to the Palme D'Or.
