Cannes Film Festival 2022: Full winners list and highlights
Festival de Cinéma
After kicking off on 12 May at the Palace of Festivals and Congresses of Cannes, the star-studded annual Cannes Film Festival is finally done and dusted. Ever since its inception in 1939, the annual festival has continued to showcase and honour films on an international level while promoting the development of cinema by acting as a springboard for new talents to be discovered. For its 75th edition, the festival remained committed to its founding purpose with its diverse guests and winners.
Among the many celebrities who came from across the globe is K-Pop superstar and actress, Lee Ji-Eun—also known by her stage name, IU—who attended the festival along with the cast of Broker. Lee’s attendance at the festival went viral for not only her head-turning visuals, but also her admirable "fan service" as she was seen continuously interacting with fans who came in support of her. Needless to say, she has truly earned the nickname of the "Nation's Sweetheart" of South Korea.
However, IU was not the only star of the show. The movie she starred in, Broker, received a 12-minute standing ovation—making it the first Korean movie to receive the longest standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival.
Another celebrity who took the internet by storm was Anne Hathaway, who stole the show with her stunning looks while looking as youthful as ever.
This year, the Un Certain Regard jury was presided by actress, director and producer Valeria Goliono, as well as director Debra Granik, actress Joanna Kulig, actor and singer Benjamin Biolay, and actor and producer Edgar Ramirez. After twelve days of glitzy and glamourous red carpet looks, the winners list has finally been revealed.
