So far, the actor who plays Fermín in Roma hasn't been able to attend any U.S. awards ceremonies.
Director Alfonso Cuarón's latest film Roma has been lighting up the awards circuit this season and is nominated for Best Picture for next month's Oscars — but actor Jorge A. Guerrero, who plays Fermín, hasn't been able to attend because his application for a U.S. visa has been denied three times.
In a TV interview, Guerrero talked about how he even had letters in hand from Netflix and Cuarón himself, but hasn't been given a reason for the denial of his visa application. For more info, you'll want to read up this report from BuzzFeed News (translated from the Spanish original from our Mexico-based reporter Fana Lopez).
