    Does this wealth benefit humanity? If not, who cares how rich they are!! I hope it is all being put to good use. How about creating an award for a socially relevant film that deals with some human interest story to help make a social impact for positive change.
    Just an idea.

    It is not important that Armenians are proud of them, what imports is that they be proud of beeing Armenians, if they are, to send a helping hand to Armenians which they are in need badly .
