The Salesman wins big!

Asghar Farhadi is of course best know for 2011's A Separation, for which he won the coveted Oscar for Best Foreign Language Picture.

Getting off to a very strong start, his new film, The Salesman, has already taken home some very impressive silverware, winning Best Screenplay and Best Actor (for Shahab Hosseini) at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as Best International Film at the Munich Film Festival.

There's a long wait ahead of us, but hopefully this bodes well for another Oscar nomination for Farhadi.
