    Congratulations to Katherine Sarafian and her team! What a wonderful achievement. Thank you for posting it Asbarez!
    Now that we see it is possible, maybe we can get our act together and start funding Armenian films, such as East of Byzantium, and other film projects by Armenian filmmakers, directors and producers. On we go!

    Congrats to Sarafian! We must also point out that producer Steven Shareshian won his second Golden Globe this year. This one is for “Game Change” chosen as best TV movie, and starring Julianne Moore.
