The film beat out Xavier Dolan’s hyped-about “Mommy,” which settled for the Jury Prize, along with Jeal-Luc Godard’s “Goodbye to Language.” The runner-up Grand Prix award went to Alice Rohrwacher’s Italian-language film “The Wonders.”

Bennett Miller nabbed Best Director for “Foxcatcher.” The film failed to win the Best Actor prize for Steve Carell’s much-praised lead performance. Instead Jane Campion’s jury decided to award the prize to Timothy Spall for his turn as J.M. W. Turner in Mike Leigh’s “Mr. Turner.” Julianne Moore won Best Actress for playing an actress in David Cronenberg’s Hollywood satire “Maps to the Stars.”

Below is the full list of winners:
