The Guillermo del Toro-led jury has awarded Alfonso Cuaron’s ROMA the Golden Lion at the 75th Venice Film Festival.

Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Favourite earned the Silver Lion grand jury prize at the awards ceremony on Saturday evening, while Jacques Audiard won the best director award for The Sisters Brothers.

In the acting stakes, Olivia Colman earned the Coppa Volpi best actress prize for The Favourite, and Willem Dafoe took the best actor award for his performance as Vincent van Gogh in At Eternity’s Gate.

The festival awarded its best screenplay prize to Joel and Ethan Coen for The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs, while the special jury prize went to Jennifer Kent’s The Nightingale (another Australian victory in the category after Warwick Thornton’s Sweet Country took the same prize last year). The Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor went to Baykali Ganambarr for the same film.

In Horizons, best film went to Manta Ray from Thai director Phuttiphong Aroonpheng.
