A. Farhadi on a red carpet of Movie in capital

These “hosts” (I use the term lightly) clearly put more prep work into their appearance than their jobs. They didn’t know who their subjects were (when “who are you wearing” is your only question, you’re in trouble), flubbed tosses, cussed, and asked totally inappropriate questions. Farhadi has received two Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film for his films A Separation (2012) and The Salesman (2016), making him one of the few directors worldwide who have won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film twice. In 2012, he was included on the annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.
