The Salesman, a film by Iranian Oscar-winning Asghar Farhadi, is a taut moral drama about a married couple who are acting in Death of a Salesman, a play by Arthur Miller.
Among "Divines" (France), Elle (France), Neruda (Chile), Toni Erdmann (Germany), The Salesman was nominated as entry for the Best Foreign Language Film.
Monday morning, Don Cheadle, Laura Dern, and Anna Kendrick announced the nominees for the Golden Globe Awards, Vanity Fair reported.
The resulting list contained plenty of good news for La La Land, which led the pack with seven nominations; Moonlight, in second with six nods; and Manchester by the Sea, which scored five. Over in the TV categories, The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story was unsurprisingly dominant—though as always, there was plenty of room for fresh meat, including series that just premiered this fall.
The Salesman also will compete in Best Foreign Language film in 2017 Oscars.
The movie won two prizes in the Cannes Film Festival in May.
Lead protagonist Shahab Hosseini won a Palme d'Or for best actor and Farhadi scooped the best screenplay award during the 69th edition of the festival.
In 2012, Farhadi’s "A Separation" also won Iran's first Oscar for best foreign film.
