he gong goes to A Separation - it's the first Oscar to go to a film from Iran, we learn.
Asghar Farhadi, the director says it is a triumph for "a culture that has been hidden under the heavy dust of politics." There's raptuous applause.
Tim Robey says:
A Separation, the deserving victor of Best Foreign Film, is probably the best film that'll win anything all night. It's also up for Best Original Screenplay, but will probably lose to The Artist or Midnight in Paris.
Patrick Smith adds:
A Separation is a worthy winner of Foreign Language Film. Set in modern-day Iran, it's a powerful and tense piece of film-making. Excellent performances, too.
