Benicio Del Toro leads Cannes film festival winners
OSCAR-winner Benicio Del Toro has won Cannes' Best Actor award today for his role as "Che" Guevara in Steven Soderbergh's film on the revolutionary hero.
It was his second big award under the US director's helmsmanship.
Del Toro, 41, transforms into a larger-than-life Che in the marathon four-hours-plus movie.
"I'd like to dedicate this to the man himself, Che Guevara,'' he said.
