Kevin: Unfortunately, what IMDb has is correct. See https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/theres_a_problem_on_asghar_farhadis_profile_on_the_yellow_aw..., where this same question came up before.

The official nominee and recipient for the Best Foreign Language Film category at the Oscars is not the director -- it's the country. This has been the rule since the Oscars given in 1958.

Kevin: Director, producer, or anything else, it doesn't matter. No human being has been officially named as the winner of an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film since 1958. The official nominee and winner is the country which submits the film, not a producer, not a director, nor any other person. (In the awards given in 1957 for 1956, the producers were nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, but not since then.)

Yes, the director (who in Farhadi's case was also the producer) gets to go on stage and given the acceptance speech, and probably also take the statuette home, but the country is the official winner. See http://awardsdatabase.oscars.org/ -- if you look up Farhadi, the only nomination you will find for him is for Best Original Screenplay, not for Foreign Language Film.
