Titane
French horror film, 'Titane,' won Palme d'Or at the 74th Cannes Film Festival on July 17 Collected

In what appeared to be an accident, Lee read out the winner of the top prize instead of introducing the best actor award

Cannes jury president Spike Lee let slip at the start of the Cannes film festival awards ceremony that French shock-fest "Titane" had been awarded the Palme d'Or. 

In what appeared to be an accident, Lee read out the winner of the top prize instead of introducing the best actor award. 

Caleb Landry Jones took home the best acting award at Cannes on Saturday for his chilling performance in "Nitram" about Australia's worst mass shooting from 1996.

Making a film about the Port Arthur massacre, in which 35 people died, triggered harsh criticism of director Justin Kurzel in Australia, but critics were won over at Cannes, with Variety calling it a "devastating study of atrocity" showing "quiet respect for the victims' dignity".  

Norwegian Renate Reinsve won best actress award. The 33-year old Reinsve's role in "The Worst Person in the World" was her first ever lead part, and rocketed her to instant stardom after a slew of rave reviews.
