Selena Gomez and Zoe Saldana were among the Best Actress winners at the recently concluded 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

The 77th edition of the prestigious film fest ended on Saturday, May 25 in the south of France with the awarding of its top prize, the Palme d'Or, to Anora, an explicit and often hilarious story about a New York erotic dancer.

One of the highlights of the affair was Karla Sofia Gascon's Best Actress award, which marked a first-ever win for a trans actress at the annual ceremony. Gomez, Saldana, and Gascon, along with Adriana Paz, shared the title for their performance in the audacious musical Emilia Perez. According to the jury, they were rewarding the "harmony of sisterhood"—though only Gascon was at the event.

Below is the full list of the 2024 Cannes winners.
