Farhadi won Best Foreign Language Film Sunday for his film, The Salesman. His decision to boycott the show came as a result of President Trump's executive order that banned immigrants from seven Muslim majority countries from entering the United States for a period of time.
Instead of reading his own remarks, Farhadi had Iranian-American engineer Anousheh Ansari, the first Iranian to go to space, read his statement.
