AND THE OTHER WINNERS ARE…: Collecting one of two Best Actor prizes at the closing ceremony of the Cannes International Film Festival on Sunday for his role in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “Biutiful,” Javier Bardem dedicated his prize in Spanish to “mi amor, Penélope Cruz,” who promptly burst into tears. Elio Germano was also awarded a Best Actor prize for his role in “La nostra vita,” directed by Daniele Luchetti. The Grand prize went to director Xavier Beauvois for “Des hommes et des dieux.” Charlotte Gainsbourg presented the festival’s coveted Palme d’Or award, which went to Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul for his film “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives,” about a man suffering from kidney failure. Weerasethakul in the past has collaborated with Louis Vuitton; his documentary, “Vampire,” was commissioned in 2008 for a Vuitton traveling exhibit.
