The only thing that can derail the Ben Affleck-Argo
express is the Oscars because he's not winning Best Director there, he's not even nominated. However, it was a different story at the Directors Guild of America where Affleck, a first time nominee, beat out previous winners Steven Spielberg, Ang Lee, Tom Hooper and Kathryn Bigelow for the night's top honors. Good on ya, Ben. He genuinely looked shocked to be there. What does this mean for the Oscars though? Does Spielberg or Lee have a better shot or do the newbies Michael Haneke and Benh Zeitlin walk away with it? February 24th can't come fast enough. The anticipation is killing me.
