With a pair of wins for Best Director and Best Picture for Argo at the Critics Choice Movie Awards. Ben Affleck's day ended much better than it started.
Less than 12 hours earlier, Affleck was among the notable Oscar snubs, left off the list of nominees at the prestigious 85th Annual Academy Awards.
Nice way to salvage the day.
When the camera panned to the married father of three, his jaw dropped as he looked around and realized the star-studded audience was on its feet.
"Thank you very much," Affleck said, collecting his Best Director award. "I would like to thank the Academy ... I'm kidding, I'm kidding! This is the one that counts."
