Cannes 2012 Winners Announced : Have A Look..

Over the past couple of weeks, the Cannes red carpet has been packed with Hollywood star power. Brad Pitt, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and many more struck poses on the French Riviera before debuting films at the famed festival.
But when it came down to taking home the fest's coveted prizes, did any of Hollywood's hottest make the cut?Not even.

Flicks like The Paperboy (starring Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman) and Pitt's gritty Killing Them Softly caused quite the stir at the fest. But despite rave reviews for these star-driven films, it was Michael Haneke who nabbed the top prize at Cannes, taking home the Best Film for his drama flick Amour, according to Reuters.
In fact, the big winners list from the 12-day fest was completely devoid of Hollywood stars, with Mads Mikkelsen winning best actor for his role in The Hunt and Cosmina Stratan and Cristina Flutur sharing Best Actress for their work in Beyond The Hills.
