Argo was the sleeper smash hit at the 2013 Golden Globes. After Ben Affleck won for Best Director the previously certain Best Picture category (wasn't Lincoln the certain winner?) all went out the window. 

Argo was snubbed heavily by the Academy Awards after Ben Affleck was left off of the Best Director list. 

Will this make the Academy think differently about Affleck's film? The movie also won the big prize at this year's Critic's Choice Awards. 

Congratulations are definitely in order for Ben Affleck.
