2013 Awards Season: Argo Adds to Awards Season Haul
February 3rd, 2013
Directors Guild of America Awards were this weekend and the big winner shouldn't surprise too many people, assuming they've been paying attention. Argo won yet again and given this, Ben Affleck should be the favorite to win an Oscar at the end of the month... except he wasn't even nominated.
The categories and nominations are...
OUSTANDING DIRECTORIAL ACHIEVEMENT IN FEATURE FILM
- On the one hand, Ben Affleck's win for Argo was a bit of a surprise. When the nominations were announced, I thought it would go to either Kathryn Bigelow or Steven Spielberg. On the other hand, Argo has been winning everything, so this is just a continuation of a trend.
- Likewise, I thought the race for documentary was between Kirby Dick for The Invisible War and David France for How to Survive a Plague. However, in the end, Malik Bendjelloul won for Searching for Sugar Man. This does change my opinion on the Oscars.
