Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Hours af­ter a sur­prise snub in Academy Award nominations, Ben Af­fleck won best di­rec­tor and his film Argo was named best pic­ture at the Crit­ics’ Choice Movie Awards.

Af­fleck, whose film was nom­i­nated for seven Os­cars in­clud­ing best pic­ture but not best di­rec­tor, ac­cepted the award Thurs­day night at the Broad­cast Film Crit­ics As­so­ci­a­tion’s 18th an­nual awards in Los An­ge­les, jok­ing as he took the tro­phy that he’d “like to thank the Academy.”

Daniel Day-Lewis from Lin­coln and Jes­sica Chas­tain from Zero Dark Thirty both added to ear­lier Os­car nods with Crit­ics’ Choice wins in the top act­ing cat­e­gories.

Philip Sey­mour Hoff­man won best sup­port­ing ac­tor for his role in The Master and Anne Hath­away won best sup­port­ing ac­tor for Les Mis­er­ables.
