Sean Baker’s ANORA, which stars Armenian actors Karren Karagulian and Vache Tovmasyan, has won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Karren Karagulian is a regular in Sean Baker’s films, having starred in all of the director’s films. In his speech, Sean Baker called the actor his “lucky charm” due to their collaboration spanning over 20 years.

The Palme d’Or is the most prestigious prize of the film festival— and arguably the most prestigious prize in all of cinema. The film is also the first American film to win the Palme d’Or since Terrence Malick’s THE TREE OF LIFE in 2011. In previous years, winners of the Palme d’Or have gone on to have notable success at the Academy Awards. Last year’s Palme d’Or winner ANATOMY OF A FALL received 5 Oscar nominations, including for Best Director and Best Picture, and won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
