Cannes 2022: 'Triangle of Sadness' Wins The Palme d'Or [Full Winners List]

The 75th Cannes Film Festival is coming to a close on Saturday afternoon, and after much speculation as to what would take home the top prize, it was a familiar winner striking gold again. For the second time in five years, director Ruben Östlund won the coveted Palme d’Or for his English-language debut film, “Triangle of Sadness.” Östlund first won the prize back in 2017 for “The Square” and beat out eighteen other films to win this year’s top prize. With this win, it will be interesting to see how the film shapes out within award season by the end of the year.
