(From L) Gaspard Ulliel, Bertrand Bonello and Jeremie Renier pose for a selfie during a photocall for the film "Saint-Laurent" at the 67th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, on May 17, 2014It's been another heady year of giant stars and wooden actors, great films and terrible turkeys at the Cannes Film Festival. Several films got the crowds blubbing at this year's festival, especially "Amy", a documentary about the tragically short life of singer Amy Winehouse, and the moving lesbian love affair at the heart of "Carol" starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. A generous gut proved to be a hit with the critics, with Colin Farrell, Joaquin Phoenix and France's larger-than-life icon Gerard Depardieu sporting flabby "dad bods" in their well-received films, while movies starring more toned stars such as Matthew McConaughey and French heartthrob Jeremie Elkaim took a mauling in the press.

By Steve Gorman and Alan Devall LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The carcasses of five petroleum-soaked pelicans have been recovered from California's Santa Barbara coastline, the first apparent sea bird fatalities stemming from the oil spill to be documented by officials overseeing the disaster response. The tally was reported Friday by the joint-agency command for cleanup and recovery operations in Santa Barbara and Dr. Michael Ziccardi, a veterinarian from the University of California, Davis, who heads the Oiled Wildlife Care Network. The body of a dolphin with no visible signs of oil also turned up on Friday in Santa Barbara Harbor, though a post-mortem exam must be conducted on the carcasses of the dolphin and birds to determine conclusively whether or not they were victims of the spill.
