Cannes Winners

Well the Cannes Winners have been announced. Roman Polanksi clinched the Palme D'Or for The Pianist. Get the complete awards list here or as a PDF. There's an Indian winner too: Manish Jha shared the Jury Prize for A Very, Very Silent Film. Paul Thomas Anderson (remember the frogs in Magnolia?) won Best Director for Punch-Drunk Love (starring Adam Sandler !!!). Allen joked about France's fondness for him, saying the French have two misconceptions: ``that I'm an intellectual, because I wear these glasses, and that I'm an artist, because my films lose money all the time. Neither of those things are true.''
