For the first time Iran has won an Oscar - A Separation won for best foreign film.

But the people of Iran, who are extremely proud of this achievement - were not able to watch the live broadcast.

Iran's state channel forbids the broadcast of such ceremonies, and those who could watch it inside the country did so by accessing Western satellite channels.
