Sarafian and Brave director Mark Andrews, who accepted the award, took the stage during Sunday’s ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Brave, which was a critical and box office success last summer, was produced by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.

Brave competed for the Golden Globe alongside Frankenweenie, Hotel Transylvania, Rise of the Guardians and Wreck-It Ralph.

    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!
