Spike Lee Apologizes After Accidentally Announcing Top Cannes Film Festival Winner - E! Online

E! NEWS 17 July, 2021 - 06:08pm

The 64-year-old writer-director came forward and apologized after accidentally announcing the 2021 Palme d'Or winner, Titane, on Saturday, July 17, when he was supposed to share a different prize winner instead. "I have no excuses. I messed up," Lee said during a press conference, per a video captured by Variety. "I'm a big sports fan. It's like the guy at the end of the game in the foul line, he misses a free throw, or a guy misses a kick."

Lee continued, "I messed up, simple as that. I was very specific to speak to the people of Cannes and tell them that I apologize. They said forget about it."

Maggie Gyllenhaal spoke up about Lee's mistake, saying that it was "like an injection of humanity right into the middle of the ceremony," per another video shared by Variety.

Lee also joked about his accidental reveal following his apology.

"We love cinema, and it's a great honor for us to be on the jury," he explained, per The Hollywood Reporter. "This year, especially, after COVID-19. This is historic. Besides me f--king up, this is historic."

Spike Lee accidentally reveals the Palme d'Or winner at Cannes

Daily Mail 17 July, 2021 - 02:53pm

By Lydia Spencer-elliott and Roxy Simons For Mailonline

Spike Lee has admitted he 'messed up' after accidentally revealing the winner of the Palme d'Or prize at the closing ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday. 

The esteemed director, 64, who led the festival's nine-member award jury this year, made the spectacular blunder when he was announcing the award winners and misunderstood the host when she asked him to read 'which prize is the first prize'.

Following the unclear instructions, Spike instead revealed the winner of the festival's top prize before anything else, announcing the prestigious award had gone to Titane directed by Julia Ducournau.

Oops! Cannes Film Festival Jury President Spike Lee accidentally revealed the Palme d'Or winner before presenting awards in spectacular blunder during Saturday's closing ceremony

The award marks only the second time ever that a female director has won the top prize at the festival in its 74-year history. 

Speaking after the ceremony, Spike reflected: 'I have no excuses, I messed up. I'm a big sports fan. It´s like the guy at the end of the game who misses the free throw.' 

He added: 'I messed up. As simple as that.'

The horror film stars Vincent Lindon, Agathe Rousselle, Garance Marillier and Laïs Salameh,and the first two joined Julia on stage. 

Error: The esteemed director, 64, prematurely revealed that Titane directed by Julia Ducournau (left) had won the top prize

Oh dear: Spike was seen sitting with his head in his hands after making the mistake

Honest: Speaking after the ceremony, Spike reflected: 'I have no excuses, I messed up. I'm a big sports fan. It´s like the guy at the end of the game who misses the free throw'

Winner: Spike was seen chatting with Julia at the end of the ceremony when she came up to accept her award, despite him revealing she'd won the coveted Palme d'Or at the start

Despite the mistake, Julia warmly shook Spike's hand as she comforted him for making the high-profile mishap when she accepted the award at the end of the ceremony. 

Julia also embraced actress Sharon Stone as she accepted the prize, while Spike continued to look sheepish behind them.

Ducournau's win was a long-awaited triumph. The only previous female filmmaker to win Cannes' top honour - among the most prestigious awards in cinema - was Jane Campion for The Piano in 1993.

Chaos: The director also embraced actress Sharon Stone as she accepted the prize, while Spike continued to look sheepish behind them

The slip up is reminiscent of the hilarious moment when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway incorrectly announced that La La Land had won the Best Picture Award at the Oscars in 2017. 

In a heart-stopping moment, the stars and producers of La La Land were stopped midway through their acceptance speeches and forced to hand their trophies to the stars of Moonlight after their film was announced as Best Picture in one of the biggest blunders in Oscar history. 

The terrible end to an otherwise triumphant show left the audience gasping in horror as Beatty revealed he had incorrectly read La La Land as the winner.

While Spike may have suffered a presenting slip up, he brought style to the stage in an eye catching sky print suit. 

The edgy ombre outfit blended from blues to purples, pinks, yellows and turquoise shades in a mesmerising abstract pattern. 

He layered the rainbow ensemble over a plain white shirt and a classy black satin tie. 

Unafraid to accessorise, Spike completed his outfit with a black and red hat, a chunky cross necklace and a pair of striking orange glasses.
