>> Friday's rally was organized by Hollywood agency UTA and took place instead of its annual Oscar party, it follows Trump's bid to ban travel to the US from seven majority Muslim nations. It's this crackdown that prompted Iranian film director Asghar Farhadi to boycott Sunday's ceremony, speaking to the rally via a video from Tehran he thanked his cinema colleagues.
>> It's an assault on human dignity.>>
>> I am grateful to the solidarity offered by my fellow filmmakers and the UTA family who have reacted responsively to discrimination and injustice.>> Some Trump supporters were also spotted, they said people should be patient and give Trump's new policies a chance.
