The Donald Trump bashing went international at Sunday night’s Oscars, thanks to the Italian winner of the best makeup award.

Alessandro Bertolazzi led the team that won the award for “Suicide Squad,” and ended his portion of the acceptance speech by talking about immigration.

“I’m from Italy, I work around the world,” he said. “This is for all the immigrants.”

Earlier, during the opening monolog, host Jimmy Kimmel had also implicitly attacked Mr. Trump’s approach to vetting immigrants and refugees, saying he was glad that French actress Isabelle Huppert had been let into the country by Homeland Security.

Iran is one of the seven majority-Muslim countries affected by Mr. Trump’s vetting order. Although exceptions could have been made, director Asghar Farhadi, whose movie “The Salesman” is one of the five nominees for Best Foreign Film, said he would not attend the ceremony rather than submit to any such processes.
