Yayyy that's me that's me !! ;)

I'd suggest a theme like "Palme d'Or winning films no one remembers", or "Oscar winning films you didn't know won an Oscar", that's always fun.

Those are interesting ideas. Though such categories would require a lot of research (and define "no one remembers" on the Palme d'Or category).

I suppose "No one remembers" is a very subjective concept.
But I was shocked the other day when I learned that in 1954, at the Venice Film Festival, a year when Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, Hitchcock's Rear Window, Elia Kazan's On the Waterfront, Fellini's La Strada, Visconti's Senso, and Mizoguchi's Sancho (among others) were all in competition for the Golden Lion, the coveted prize went to... a version of Romeo and Juliet no one remembers.
And I'm sure there are such strange things now and then in the history of the big festivals.
But it sure requires quite a lot of research.
