Could the Oscar underdog Argo take best picture? Ben Affleck won the 65th Directors Guild of America Award for his Iran hostage drama last night, cleaning up a sweep of top prizes from awards season. Affleck has already won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Picture and Best Director, a Golden Globe for Best Picture, a SAG award for Best Ensemble, and a PGA for Best-Produced picture. No film has ever won all of the aforementioned prizes without winning Best Picture at the Oscars.
