Emad Burnat and his wife Soraya representing Palestine (Nominated for ‘5 Broken Cameras’) at the Oscars. Soraya is wearing a traditional Palestinian Thob.

They were also completely disrespected by US customs officials and detained in complete isolation for several hours, where they was treated like dirt and told they was going to be deported back to Palestine. He even showed them the invitation to the ceremony, but they didn’t believe him. Eventually he contacted Michael Moore, who got help and got him released. Read about it.
I just wanted to note that as a reminder that even people nominated for Oscars get treated that way. Unsurprising, unfortunately, and utterly disgusting.
