While Michael Moore was scooping up the Palme d'Or for his latest Docuganda, 14-year-old Yuuya Yagira won the Best Actor Award at Cannes for his role in Hirokazu Kore-eda's "Nobody Knows" (Dare-mo Shiranai). According to our Yomiuri paper - it wasn't in the Daily Yomiuri Online as of this post - Yagira is the youngest Best Actor winner in Cannes history, and the first Japanese male to receive an award in any actor category.
