'Argo' continues awards season success at SAG Awards

By Vanessa Frith,

Following Saturday's triumph at the Producers Guild of America Awards, Argo took home yet another prize at last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Argo chronicles a CIA mission to remove American diplomats from 1980 revolutionary Iran. Directed by Ben Affleck, the film has been taking the Hollywood awards season by storm.

After winning best drama and best director at the Golden Globes and receiving the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of a Motion Picture at the PGAs, Argo can now add the SAG Award for Overall Cast Performance to its growing list of achievements.

"To me this has nothing to do with me, it has to do with the incredible people who were in this movie," said Affleck when he accepted the award for the movie as both director and star, reports The Associated Press.

The AP points out that as the Oscars draw closer, Argo seems to stand a strong chance of achieving a seldom-seen feat: With a nomination for Best Picture, the film stands a chance of being only the fourth film to win the honor without a directorial Oscar nomination.
