Cannes President Spike Lee Prematurely Unveils Palme D’Or Winner In Echo Of 2017 Oscar Mix-Up – Watch
Cannes Film Fesitval’s jury president Spike Lee appeared to inadvertently lift the lid on this year’s Palme d’Or winner – naming Julia Ducournau’s Titane – after a mix-up early in tonight’s closing awards ceremony. Watch the moment further down this page.

The event’s hostess asked Lee, in French, if he could reveal the “first prize” of the evening. Instead of reading that as the chronological first prize, Lee seemed to take it as ‘first place’, going on to say Titane had scooped the Palme.

Confusion reigned and the hostess attempted to resolve the situation by swiftly moving on to the prize that was supposed to be revealed at that moment – best actor for Nitram’s Caleb Landry Jones. Lee then urged her to speak to him in English to avoid any further mix-ups, drawing plenty of laughter from the attending audience.
