AND THE 2015 PALME DOG GOES TO...


Congratulations to Lucky! The Maltipoo from Miguel Gomes' Arabian Nights has won the 15th annual Palme Dog at the Cannes Film Festival. The extravagantly-attired cross between a Maltese terrier and a poodle won for portraying Dixie in the six-hour, three-part political epic from the Portuguese filmmaker, and follows last year's winners, the entire canine cast of Mundruczo Kornel's White God. This year's runner-up was Bob, the shepherd dog from Yorgos Lanthimos' competition title The Lobster.
