Tehran - Arabstoday

Iran’s media attacked Lady Obama’s announcement that Argo had won Iranian media on Monday scoffed at Hollywood's awarding of its top honour to Ben Affleck's Iran hostage drama Argo, branding it a "political" win. The 85th Academy Awards is

"the most political Oscar ever," Iran's state television said as it reported the news that Argo had won the coveted best film Oscar. Iranian officials have not immediately reacted.
The Iranian state broadcaster accused Argo director and star Affleck of specialising "in exaggeration, blowing things out of proportion and creating false scenes."
Argo recounts the long-classified CIA plot to extract six US hostages out of revolutionary Iran, who managed to evade Islamist students storming the US embassy in Tehran on November 4 1979.
The other 52 hostages were held for 444 days in an action that caused the rupture of diplomatic ties between Washington and Tehran.
Although Argo takes liberties with history by its makers' own admission, the movie has racked up a rash of honours on the awards circuit.
The movie's Oscar win was announced by US first lady Obama in an unprecedented satellite appearance from the White House.
Iran's state television said her involvement "increases speculation that awarding this movie was politically motivated."
The Fars news agency, affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards, branded Argo an "anti-Iran movie" financed by a "Zionist company" - in a reference to the California-based Warner Bros which produced it.
Fars was also critical of Obama and her silver low cut gown, which would be banned in the Islamic Republic under its strict dress code for women.
A photo of Obama announcing Argo as the winner appeared to have been altered - her dress is shown covering her shoulders, in contrast to the original which shows her bare-shouldered.
Doctoring of pictures is not uncommon in Iran.
In 2011, Iranian newspapers published an altered picture of EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton that covered up her cleavage. She was at the time heading the P5+1 group of United States, Russia, China, Britain, France plus Germany in talks with Iran over its controversial nuclear drive.
Iran's contempt of Hollywood is no secret.
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei last Wednesday criticised it as a "totally political" machine that propagates policies brewed in Washington.
"Hollywood is totally political. Otherwise it would have let our anti-Zionist movies participate in film festivals," he said in remarks reported by his Khamenei.ir website.
"Producing political anti-Iranian movies and giving awards to anti-Iranian movies is a clear sign that politics is mixed with art in the US," Khamenei added in an allusion to Argo.
