Oscars 2013: Ben Affleck Acceptance Speech

ben affleck accepts award for argo

Ben Affleck gave a classy, heartfelt and tearful acceptance speech after his film Argo won the Best Picture award last night at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.

Affleck, who was snubbed for a Best Director nod for the film, also produced the film along with George Clooney and Grant Helov.

Michelle Obama presented the award from the White House via satellite.

Fearing he would run out of time, Affleck sped through his acceptance speech.

Thanking his wife, Jennifer Garner, for working on their marriage, the 40-year-old actor/director/producer said, "It's work. It's the best kind of work, and there's no one else I'd rather work with."

Reminiscing about his first Oscar win for "Good Will Hunting," Affleck said, "I was here a few years ago or something, and you know, I had no idea what I was doing."

"It doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life, because that's gonna happen," he said seemingly addressing the snub. "All that matters is that you gotta get up."
