Affleck Wins DGA for ‘Argo’

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.
