I think it’s safe to say the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences who nominates & presents the awards at the annual Academy Awards is seriously regretting not including Ben Affleck as a Best Director nominee for the upcoming awards. Somebody powerful on the committee obviously holds a grudge against Ben (or maybe even Iran), but I think he could careless considering he has won at pretty much every other award show this season. Once again, Ben Affleck & his directorial debut film “Argo” took home the top prizes at the 66th British Academy Film Awards, winning both Best Film & Best Director honors. Let’s hope he & wife Jennifer Garner make sure they use protection when have having sex later tonight back at their luxury hotel in London.
Other notable winners included Daniel Day-Lewis and Emmanuelle Riva receiving awards for Best Actor and Best Actress respectively and continuing her own award season streak, Anne Hathaway scored Best Supporting Actress honors. Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor for his tremendous work in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.” And last but not least, “Skyfall” was named Best British Film. If you bastards haven’t watched any of the films, you have a lot of screen time ahead of you.
