Snub: "The Past" in Best International film
Granted, it's not as beloved as "A Separation," but the exclusion of Asghar Farhadi's "The Past" in the best international film race is puzzling. Farhadi won the Spirit Award in this category for "Separation" in 2012. "The Past" has had strong reviews since Cannes and it's certainly better than "The Hunt" or "The Great Beauty." Odd to say the least.
