Nominee Asghar Farhadi Can't Attend Oscars Due to Muslim Ban
Trump is refusing access to the United States for people from seven Muslim countries. There is an indefinite ban for everyone from Syria and there is a 90 day ban on visas for people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
Farhadi, who hails from Iran, is already an Oscar winner after his movie A Separation won the award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012. He’s nominated again in the category for The Salesman.
