While nominated for Best Picture in this year's Oscars, Ben Affleck who directs and stars in the film was snubbed for the Best Directing nomination. He does win the Golden Globe award for Best Director and the movie for Best Motion Picture (Drama).
Argo was a thrilling movie to watch, even if I knew beforehand that the six made it out of Iran (the story is based on Joshuah Bearman's 2007 Wired article). Affleck and Chris Terrio (nominated for Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay), ably aided by William Goldenberg (nominated for Best Achievement in Editing) and Alexandre Desplat (nominated for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Score), deliver a well-paced and exciting film that is certain to keep you on the edge of your seat. ✍
