As the 67th Cannes Film Festival concludes, a jury led by director Jane Campion will announce the winner of the Palme d'Or and other awards on Saturday evening in the South of France.

The awards ceremony will begin at 6:55 p.m. in Cannes, 9:55 a.m. in Los Angeles. TheWrap will update the awards as they are announced.

This year's festival produced a number of well-received films that may have a chance to win the top prize, depending on the typically unpredictable tastes of the jury. The Russian epic "Leviathan," one of the final contenders to screen, was particularly strong in the eyes of many critics, but other strong possibilities include Mike Leigh's "Mr. Turner," Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher," Abderrhame Sissako's "Timbuktu," Nuri Bilge Ceylan's "Winter Sleep," the Dardenne brothers' "Two Days, One Night" and Xavier Dolan's "Mommy."

Other films in competition included Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman," David Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars," Naomi Kawase's "Still the Water," Bertrand Bonello's "Saint Laurent," Damian Szifron's "Wild Tales," Alice Rohrwacher's "La Meraviglie," Michel Hazanavicius' "The Search," Ken Loach's "Jimmy's Hall," Olivier Assayas' "The Clouds of Sils Maria," Jean-Luc Godard's "Goodbye to Language" and Atom Egoyan's "Captives."

Actors in the running for the top Cannes awards include Timothy Spall for "Mr. Turner," Steve Carell for "Foxcatcher," Marion Cotillard for "Two Days, One Night," Anne Dorval for "Mommy," Hilary Swank for "The Homesman" and Melisa Sozen for "Winter Sleep."

In a sign of who might be in line for awards, guests on the red carpet have included "Mr. Turner" star Spall, "Foxcatcher" director Bennett Miller and "Mommy" director Xavier Dolan with his cast.

While Cannes awards are typically announced on Sunday, the final day of the festival, this year's closing ceremony was moved up one day because of European elections.

The jury consists of five women and four men. In addition to Australian director Campion as president, it includes directors Sofia Coppola, Nicolas Winding Refn, Jeon Do-Yeon and Jia Zhangke, actresses Carole Bouquet and Leila Hatami and actors Willem Dafoe and Gael Garcia Bernal.

When TheWrap spoke to Bernal when he arrived at a Cannes party immediately after attending a jury meeting, he had a single comment: "Whew. Intense."
