Film Friday: 'Argo' directed by Ben Affleck

By Daniel S Levine,

Ben Affleck has directed a Best Picture winner. It still sounds a little weird, since it was just days ago that the Academy gave the film the biggest award in the industry. Argo was released back in October and grossed over $100 million, but it never really took off as a Best Picture favorite until the awards season got under way. Oddly enough, the fact that Affleck didn't get nominated for Best Director was the catalyst or at least it seemed that way. As win after win piled up for Argo, it looked like there was no way any other movie could earn Best Picture.
