Nick CannonIt's true! Nick Cannon, from MTV's "Wild 'N Out," is being honored today at the Cannes Film Festival. Apparently, someone feels that his performance in "Bobby" was groundbreaking -- and qualifies Canon as the "Breakthrough Actor of the Year."

That's quite an accomplishment for someone whose prior memorable moments include improv fart noises and "yo mama's so fat" jokes.

A legend in the making.
