President Sean Penn and the jurors lauded French actress Catherine Deneuve and director/actor Clint Eastwood with a Special Award from this 61st Festival de Cannes.

Accepting the award, Catherine Deneuve garnered even more applause when she uttered this statement: "Thank you very much to the Jury. I am greatly touched and moved. I'm very grateful to Arnaud Desplechin, thanks to whom I am here tonight. I'd also like to thank my partners in the film A Christmas Tale, especially Mathieu Amalric and Jean-Paul Roussillon. And Pascal Caucheteux as well, who has accompanied all of Arnaud Desplechin's projects for so long. I am still happy today, to make films like this one, so full of energy, intelligence, sensitivity, and uniqueness. As long as there are a few rare directors like him, I'll always want to continue making films."
