Motion Pictures Awards

Unites States Leads in Cannes


The Cannes Festival in Southern France is celebrating its 70. edition. Motion Pictures made in America have won the Palme d'Or movie prize at the Cannes Film Festival most often. Since the award's conception in 1955, 13 U.S. films were awarded the golden palm.

The host nation, France, is in second position with 7 wins. For the first time, two movies produced by web streaming provider Netflix are shortlisted for the prize ("Okja", "The Meyerowitz Stories"). From next year onwards, all short listed films will have to be released in French cinemas first to be able to enter.
