Before everything else, we have the need to explain the name of the website and the story behind it. The name is devoted to the incredible movie The Lobster from 2015, which won Jury Prize in 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
The Lobster is a sci-fi dystopian black comedy film premiered at the 68th Cannes Film Festival. The Lobster crew also includes major acting stars such as Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz among others.
This movie is both entertaining and eccentric, even disgusting at some points, but many critics awarded the film with excellent ratings. The movie first appeared at the 68th Cannes Film Festival held in May 2015. The Lobster was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or but end up with the Jury Prize. The presidents of the jury which awarded The Lobster were Academy Award Winners – Joel and Ethan Coen.
Cannes Film Festival
Cannes Film Festival is an annual event taking place in the southern France for the past 70 years. The primary purpose of the Cannes Film Festival is the presentation of new films and documentaries from different genres and areas around the world. Besides, it is renowned as one of the most prestigious festivals in the movie industry. Winning even the least significant credit at the Cannes Film Festival means a lot to actors, producers, directors and the rest of the film crew.
Cannes Film Festival awards movies with the Palme d’Or (Golden Palm) from and it is the greatest honour at the festival. Two of these awards are given each year – one for feature film and another for best short film. The Palme d’Or is 24-carat gold hand cast palm presented in a case of blue Moroccan leather with a white suede lining.
2015 Cannes Film Festival was under a spotlight because of many things including the Charlie Hebdo shootings, first female Palme D’Or receiver and tough competition including contenders such as The Lobster; The Hear After, Youth, Our Little Sister, and Sicario. French director Agnes Varda became the first female filmmaker to receive this award.
The Cannes Film Festival in its long history presented a large number of amazing movies, including the previous winners such as Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Turkish drama Winter Sleep which won the Palme d’Or in 2014 and Blue is the Warmest Colour which won in 2013.
However, it is also important to mention Michael Moore’s controversial documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 which was awarded by the Palme d’Or in 2004, Roman Polanski’s The Pianist from 2002 and Quentin Tarantino´s legendary masterpiece Pulp Fiction from 1994. The Coen Brothers’ Barton Fink from 1991 and Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver in 1976 were also receivers of the Cannes Film Festival´s main prize. After reading these names, one can be sure that the popularity and prestige of this festival goes a while back.
The third most important award at the Cannes Film Festival, after the Palme d’Or and the Grand Prix, is the Jury Prize, also called Prix du Jury in French. It was initially an award for the second best film in competition, and from 1951 until 1966 it was called Special Jury Prize. For two following years, it was referred to as Grand Prize of the Jury.
One way or the other, this award is a great recognition for all the movies which are presented in the selection of equally great movies. The jury includes the best filmmakers of the time such as Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Robert De Niro, Coen brothers, Tim Burton, David Lynch, Martin Scorsese and many other successful directors, producers and actors. Therefore, even being chosen into official selection of movies is the extreme success and the sign of quality.
Directors Andrea Arnold and Ken Loach both from the United Kingdom received the most Jury Prizes up to date. In the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Andrea Arnold was awarded the prize for her film American Honey. The jury also awarded her movies Red Road and Fish Tank in 2006 and 2009. Ken Loach also has three Jury Prizes for his films Hidden Agenda, Raining Stones, and The Angels’ Share. Filmmakers such as Michelangelo Antonioni, René Clément, Masaki Kobayashi, and Samira Makhmalbaf have two Jury Prizes each.
