The glamour, the parties, and all those premieres and press conferences are over for another year, as the Palme d'Or was given out at the award ceremony to mark the end of the Cannes Film Festival 2008. A French film called The Class got the Palme d'Or this year, and its young stars were full of smiles and excitement at their win, Benicio del Toro and Catherine Deneuve also received awards at the ceremony, and jurors Natalie Portman and Sean Penn and actor Robert De Niro were among those giving them out.
But before the awards there was one more premiere, this time for Synecdoche and a photocall with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Michelle Williams, Catherine Keener and Samantha Morton, as well as a fabulous Dior party hosted by Sharon Stone.
