      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Whether you like it or not... Cinema will always have the Oscars... and Cannes (you may even include Bollywood!). Ceremonies, have to be ceremonial, so parties, outfits, drinks and chicks, will alway be around; but the awards will too. I honestly and firmly rate Cannes highly, because I always discover movies, which I would have otherwise, probably never heard of! e.g. Kolya (1996 winner, from Czechoslovakia), Todo sobre mi madre (Pedro Almodovar), Run Lola Run etc. I love the Oscars, but increasingly find them more and more antiquated as the years pass by... whereas Cannes still maintains an independent, youthful, tingly features, which even the Sundance film festival is losing. Cannes and the Empire Awards (possibly Mtv and Blockbuster too) are rated the highest by me. Play on...

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I think one problem with the Cannes awards are that they are foreign and indeed seem to be more disposed towards foreign films being judged (mostly being other European countries) if you look at the list of films being judged. Now nothing wrong with this atall but really this must cut down on the number of peoples interest in the festival itself. Or rather, interest in any of the bulk of the films. Now this would explain all the interest in who is going to what party and who is seen rather than the actual films With the Oscars the actual ceremony is still seen (by the media coverage in any case) as the important thing with who is wearing what coming second. But at Cannes it is totally the other way round. It seems to be all about the parties as well as the release of films, more recently even films have been publicised that have nothing to do with the festival! If you saw the C4 special on Honest showing the members of All Saints you will have seen what I mean. It's all about the parties and being seen and answering mass numbers of stupid questions. In the actual press coverage of Cannes the films don't seem to be mentioned. Who won Cannes this year? I don't know! But I do know that Honest was loved by the Americans but hated by the British. Now what does that say about the importance of Cannes?
