'Winter Sleep' has won the prestigious Palme d'Or at the Cannes International Film Festival.

The drama, which runs for more than three hours and tells the story of a family that run a hotel in the snowy Turkish mountains, fought off stiff competition from 17 other entries to win the top honour at the annual event's closing ceremony today (24.05.14).

Accepting the accolade from Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman, director Nuri Bilge Ceylan, who previously won Cannes' second highest honour, The Grand Prix, twice, said: ''I want to dedicate the prize to the young people in Turkey and those who lost their lives during the last year.''

'Le Meraviglie' ('The Wonders') by Italian director Alice Rohrwacher won this year's Grand Prix award.

Julianne Moore was named Best Actress for her performance in David Cronenberg's dark Hollywood satire 'Maps to the Stars,' but was not present to collect her trophy.

British star Timothy Spall, 57, was thrilled to win Best Actor for his portrayal of the artist JMW Turner in 'Mr. Turner.'

He joked: ''I've spent a lot of time being a bridesmaid. This is the first time I've ever been a bride.''

Bennett Miller won the award for Best Director for his wrestling drama 'Foxcatcher,' and dedicated it to his stars Channing Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo, while 'Leviathan,' a Russian film about corruption, was named Best Screenplay.

The jury prize was shared by the oldest and youngest directors at the festival, Jean-Luc Godard, 83, for 'Goodbye to Language' and Xavier Dolan, 23, for 'Mommy.'
