In French - as this is a French Festival.
La Palme d'or est la récompense suprême décernée par le jury officiel du Festival de Cannes. Elle est accordée au meilleur film de la sélection officielle, élu parmi ceux en compétition.
De 1946 à 1954, la Palme d’or n’ayant pas encore été créée, le Jury décernait le "Grand Prix du Festival International du Film".
De 1951 à 1954, le Grand Prix est remis sous la forme d'un diplôme accompagné d'une œuvre d'art signée d'un artiste en vogue.
La Palme d’or est créée en 1954 à l’initiative de Robert Favre Le Bret. Elle est décernée pour la première fois en 1955.
De 1964 à 1974 le Festival de Cannes décide de revenir à la remise d’un Grand Prix International en lieu et place de la Palme d’or.
En 1975, la Palme d’or est réhabilitée.
Elle demeure jusqu’à aujourd’hui le prix le plus prestigieux du Palmarès, considéré comme l'une des distinctions cinématographiques les plus importantes à l’international.
