Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress

The Cannes Best Actress Award (French: Prix d'interprétation féminine) is an award presented at the Cannes Film Festival. It is chosen by the jury from the official films in competition at the festival. It was first awarded in 1946. The ceremony was cancelled in 1948, 1950, and 1968. No awards were given to actresses in 1947. On four occasions, the jury has awarded multiple women (more than 2) the prize from one film. The four films were A Big Family in 1955, Brink of Life in 1958, A World Apart in 1988, and Volver in 2006. The jury also on occasion cites actresses with a special citation that is separate from the main award. The award can be for lead or supporting roles with the exception of the period from 1979 to 1981, when the festival used to award a separate "Best Supporting Actress" prize.

Isabelle Adjani is the only actress to ever win the award for two films in one festival, which she did in 1981. Barbara Hershey won the award consecutively in 1987 and 1988.
