When Ostlund did not get an Oscar nomination in 2015, he good-naturedly released a video that included what he called a “worst man cry.” Tonight, he took a different tack as he rejoiced in his Cannes win.

He asked the photographers in the pit below the stage in the Lumière Theater to turn their cameras on the audience and led all attendees in a primal scream “of happiness.” He said, “I can direct you now, after all I won the Palme d’Or.”

Other laureates tonight included Diane Kruger as Best Actress for her first German-language turn in Fatih Akin’s In the Fade, a timely story of the aftermath of a terrorist bombing. The actress, who works largely in French and American cinema, gave a shout-out to those affected by terrorism, particularly the folks left behind. To those “who have to go on living” after losing someone, she said, “please know you are not forgotten.”
