A big surprise of the night was the award for Best Picture. Argo, produced by Warner Brothers, George Clooney (Smoke House Films, named for the awesome restaurant he freqents across from Burbank Studios. Great steaks) and Ben Affleck.
Lincoln, Django Unchained, Life of Pi, and Zero Dark Thirty all took a back seat. One wonders what Steven Spielberg was feeling at that moment.
Ben Affleck must have made a quick run to either the bar or the bathroom because he didn't make it up to the stage!
