Israeli documentary filmmaker Ari Folman won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Film for his animated feature Waltz with Bashir. Folman thanked his team and his wife and dedicated the award to the babies born to his team members over the four years during which the film was made. Expressing his wish to see peace arrive in the war-torn Middle East, Folman said he hoped one day these babies will look at the film and the war it described as an old video game with which they had nothing to do. The Golden Globe is widely considered a precursor to the Academy Awards and movies winning Golden Globes often later garner 'Oscar' statuettes as well.
