Iran can't stand that "Zionist Warner Bros" won an Oscar

More precisely, a movie produced by the company that was originally founded by Jews in the early 20th century, though they can hardly be called that today. The Wash. Post (via Jihad Watch) says:
Ben Affleck’s “Argo,” which recounts the successful rescue mission of several American diplomats during the 1979 hostage crisis in Tehran, won best picture Sunday night, and Iranian media was quick to react on Monday. [...]

The elation that followed Iran’s first Oscar victory for the film “A Separation,” which won best foreign film last year, however, has been pushed aside by what many here see as a politically motivated choice for this year’s best picture winner.

That perception was re-enforced by the surprise presenter of the award, Michelle Obama. Fars News, Iran’s main hardline outlet, wasted no time in questioning her role, writing, “In a rare occasion in Oscar history, the First Lady announced the winner for Best Picture for the anti-Iran Film ‘Argo,’ which is produced by the Zionist company Warner Bros.”

Others criticized the way Affleck referred to Islamic Republic in his acceptance speech when he said, “I want to thank our friends in Iran who live under terrible circumstances.” Mehr News ran this headline: “After distorting history, Ben Affleck continues to show a bleak picture of Iran: Iranians live in terrible circumstances.”
But they do. Especially women. I'm guessing that movies produced by Warner Bros. aren't allowed in Iran, and this one, we can be sure, won't be. Amazing that a company part of a conglomerate that I don't have a high opinion on because of how Time and CNN are hostile to Israel had the courage to produce a story like this, though the possibility the story won't give any clear critique of the Religion of Peace is still very likely. That said, good this movie won an Oscar. If I were any of the original founders, I'd be proud.
