Cannes Film Festival 2015 competition winners announced

The awards have been handed out at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, and you can check out the full list below.

We were at the festival, and the line-up was particularly strong and varied this year, making it almost impossible to predict the winners with certainty. So it's not really surprising that the results seemed to be a bit, erm, unpredictable.

The jury (led by the Coen brothers) have spent their time deliberating, naming Jacques Audiard's Dheepan the Palme d'Or winner.
