Ben Affleck was not nominated as Best Director for 'Argo' (a film that would later go on to win Best Picture at the Oscars) and lots of people thought this was a big problem. But if a former Reagan-era White House Analyst is to believed, Affleck may have an even bigger problem: being hanged for war crimes.
Michelle Obama and Jack Nicholson, who, aside from their awesomeness couldn't be more different, announced the winner for Best Picture at the 2013 Oscars -- and it was none other than 'Argo.'
And though he could have, Ben Affleck didn't rub anyone's nose in it. He's a much better person than we are.
With each passing awards ceremony, the Academy's snubbing of Ben Affleck for Best Director looks increasingly ridiculous. Some thought that 'Argo' winning Best Picture and Best DIrector at the Golden Globes was something of a fluke, but now that the critically acclaimed box office hit has won big at the Producer's Guild of America awards, you may want to shuffle around your Oscar bets.
