Real artists don't need prizes
Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki won the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes International Film Festival this year, for his movie "The Man Without a Past." In accepting the prize, Kaurismaki delivered a short speech:
"First of all, I would thank myself. Secondly, the jury. Thanks for the prize."
Then he walked off.
