Entry

The Iranian film The Salesman won the award for best foreign film. The director, however, was not in the United States to the price to pick up. “I do this out of respect for people from my country,” he wrote in his letter.

Although the court ruled that the ban revoked was to be decided by the director of The Salesman, yet not to the US to travel. In addition to this gesture was the presentation of the awards at other points in the character of criticism by Trump policy.

Late night presenter Jimmy Kimmel, host of the evening, made a reference to Trump. “There watch 225 countries that hate us,” said Kimmel. “I want to Trump actually thank. Last year it seemed that the Oscars are racist, but now…”

Political statement on the red carpet

The actors and actresses have appeared as usual in their most beautiful clothes on the red carpet in Los Angeles. Prior to the ceremony devote a lot of television attention to the clothing of the artists.

A number of stars fell this year extra-on prior to the presentation of the Oscars. Several actors and actresses wore, namely, a blue ribbon from the ACLU, the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization committed to civil liberties.
