Most spectacular snafu
It was against all the odds that the Cannes Film Festival even went ahead this year – a feat of logistics that required mass testing, mask-wearing and a swish new online ticketing system. And at the end, the jury, led by Spike Lee, picked a line-up of award winners that had edge, daring and movie magic spilling from it – especially in the case of Julia Ducournau’s brilliant-bonkers Palme d’Or winner Titane. But it would be remiss not to mention Lee accidentally announcing the night’s big winner at the beginning of the awards ceremony. Somewhere out there, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were feeling a lot better about that Oscars mix-up.
