'Good Time' Red Carpet Arrivals - The 70th Annual Cannes Film FestivalIt's time to question everything, because two of the least expected actors are earning top buzz at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Adam Sandler and Robert Pattinson have wowed fans and critics in their respective films. The former "Twilight" heartthrob has viewers raving over his leading role in the crime thriller "Good Time," with Sandler earning awards buzz for the family comedy "The Meyerowitz Stories."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pattinson's "Good Time" got "screaming applause" during a six-minute standing ovation. According to USA Today, Sandler's film "was met with rapturous reviews and a four-minute standing ovation," with critics surprised to find themselves considering the comic for an Oscar. (Hey, he was pretty good in "Punch-Drunk Love," too.)

In Celebration Of Cannes - 70 Years Of A Film FestivalHere are some early reactions to both actors having breakthrough moments at this point in their careers:

The 2017 Cannes winners will be announced this weekend. And then we wait, to see if either actor will still be riding the buzz when the Oscars are awarded in early 2018.
