Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu offered his own words of encouragement Sunday to director Joseph Cedar for his Oscar-nominated film Footnote, wishing the film success at this years 84th Academy Awards in Los Angeles.

"I am certain that I speak for all Israelis," Netanyahu said during his remarks at Sunday's Cabinet meeting, "We wish Footnote great success at the Oscars this evening." Netanyahu said that while he does not often go to the movies, "the last film I saw was this one, Footnote."

"I enjoyed it very much," he said.

"While I was familiar with many of the scenes," he commented, "I also saw that it has touched the hearts of many Israelis, and apparently non-Israelis as well who have seen it."

Footnote has been nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category, and is Cedar's second nod.
