– The Iranian film “A Separation” has been nominated for the foreign-language film Oscar at the 84th Academy Awards, organizers announced early Tuesday morning.
 
Its competitors in the category are Belgium’s “Bullhead” directed by Michael R. Roskam, Canada’s “Monsieur Lazhar” by Philippe Falardea, Israel’s “Footnote” by Joseph Cedar, and Poland’s “In Darkness” by Agnieszka Holland.
 
“A Separation”, which was written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, won the best foreign-language film award at the Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles last week.
 
The film won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2011. 
 
It also received best foreign language film awards from the U.S. National Board of Review and the New York Film Critics Circle and a nomination for the foreign language film award at the BAFTA Film Awards.
 
Silent film “The Artist” and Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” led the pack of Oscar nominees, including one nod for each in the best film category, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
 
Joining “The Artist” and “Hugo” in the competition for the best movie Oscar are nine films, including “The Descendants”, “The Help”, “Midnight in Paris”, “Moneyball”, “The Tree of Life”, “War Horse”, and “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”.
 
The Academy Awards ceremony will be held in Los Angeles on February 26.
