The French film "The Class" won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.  Interestingly, the film was a unanimous verdict of the jury in a line-up that included "The Changeling" from Clint Eastwood, "Che" from Steven Soderberg, "Three Monkeys" from Nuri Bilge Ceylan (who won the directing prize), and "Synedoche, New York" from Charlie Kaufman, among others.  Runners up were two Italian films: "Il Divo" and "Gomorrah."

Benicio Del Toro won the top male acting prize for his portrayal of Che Guevara.  Let the Oscar talk for him begin.
