Second part (1980s) : list and poll. Third part (1990s) : list and poll. Fourth part (2000-2010s) : list and poll.

Important note: the Palme d’or was created in 1954. From 1946 to 1954 and from 1964 to 1974, the highest prize was the "Grand Prix du Festival International du Film". That is why titles like "The Wages of Fear" or "MASH" are not present in this list.
