Ben Affleck and his critically acclaimed film, Argo, continue to have success around this year’s awards circuits. Last night, the Producer’s Guild of America awarded Argo with their highest honor – Best Picture. Argo has now won Best Picture and Director at the Golden Globes, received the award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures from the Directors Guild of America, and now Best Picture from the Producer’s Guild of America – the film is also nominated for Best Picture at the 85th Academy Awards.
