The Cannes Film Festival prizes have been announced, as selected by Steven Spielberg and his jury of actors and directors. Taking out the top prize, the Palme d’Or, was French film La Vie D'Adele (Blue is the Warmest Color) from Tunisia-born director Abdellatif Kechiche, reports the Hollywood Reporter. A more familiar name, the Coen brothers, won the Grand Prix with their film Inside Llewyn Davis. And the Jury Prize went to Japan's Like Father, Like Son, from director Hirokazu Kore-eda.
