Winners of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival 


If you were hoping that an American entry would take home the big prize, the Palme d'Or much like last year's "The Tree of Life," hope again. The only American winner of the bunch was the Sundance darling, Benh Zeitlin's "Beast of the Southern Wild." Fox Searchlight, the studio behind the film, will now push the New Orleans delta water-adventure for upcoming awards.
