TEHRAN
-- The acclaimed Iranian film “Nader and Simin, a Separation” was named best foreign language film at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

“My people, I think, are truly a peace-loving people,” director Ashgar Farhadi told world audiences in his acceptance speech, Reuters reported on Monday.

Angelina Jolie’s “In the Land of Blood and Honey” and “The Flowers of War” from China, “The Kid with a Bike” from Belgium, “The Skin I Live in” from Spain were competitors of the film at the Golden Globe Awards.

“A Separation” is one of the foreign-language entries for this year’s Academy Awards.

Films and stars that are declared Golden Globe winners often go on to compete for Oscars this year. Thus, “A Separation” is expected to be one of nominees at the world’s top movie prizes given out on February 26.  

Meanwhile, the ensemble female cast of the film, Leila Hatami, Sareh Bayat and Sarina Farhadi, won the best actress award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Monday.

The film also won a Golden Bear for the best film at the Berlin Film Festival and its cast ensemble received best actor and actress Silver Bears at the event last year.

The Golden Globe Awards are given out by 90 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Silent-era film “The Artist” and family drama “The Descendants” were the top film picks at the Golden Globe Awards.

“The Descendants”, by writer/director Alexander Payne, won two Golden Globe trophies, including the top honor of best dramatic movie and another for George Clooney as best dramatic actor.

“The Artist”, directed by Michel Hazanavicius, picked up three awards including best musical or comedy and best actor in a musical or comedy for its star, French actor Jean Dujardin.

Meryl Streep won best actress award for “The Iron Lady”.
