If Cannes this year was (reportedly) less congested and crazed than usual, there was still apparently plenty shown at the just-concluded festival that earned praise and plenty that brought outrage.

Here’s a rundown of the major winners:

Palme d’Or
DAS WEISSE BAND (The White Ribbon) directed by Michael HANEKE

Grand Prix
UN PROPHÈTE (A Prophet) directed by Jacques AUDIARD

Lifetime achievement award for his work and his exceptional contribution to the history of cinema

Alain RESNAIS

Best Director
Brillante MENDOZA for KINATAY

Jury Prize

FISH TANK directed by Andrea ARNOLD

BAK-JWI (Thirst) directed by PARK Chan-Wook

Best Performance for an Actor
Christoph WALTZ in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS directed by Quentin TARANTINO

Best Performance by an Actress

Charlotte GAINSBOURG in ANTICHRIST directed by Lars von TRIER
