Travel ban controversy
Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who is nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film for The Salesman, was revealed to initially be unable to attend the ceremony due to President Donald Trump’s immigration ban. He boycotted the event saying, “I have decided to not attend the Academy Awards ceremony alongside my fellow members of the cinematic community.” The Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs reacted to the travel ban, saying, “America should always be not a barrier but a beacon and each and every one of us knows that there are some empty chairs in this room which has made academy artists into activists.” Two prominent Iranian Americans – engineer Anousheh Ansari, known as the first female space tourist, and Firouz Naderi, a former director of Solar Systems Exploration at NASA – will represent Asghar Farhadi and his film at the Oscars ceremony.
