Recognition for Ben Affleck at last!

Last night, justice was served!  Ben Affleck won the Critics Choice award for Best Director for Argo and Argo won the award for Best Film.  Take that Oscars!  After being snubbed inexplicably by the Oscars earlier this week, it was gratifying to see him win these prestigious awards.  As I have said before, I believe Argo and Silver Linings Playbook were the two best movies I saw in 2012!  I love that when accepting the award, he began with “I would like to thank the academy, no, I am kidding”!  Awesome for him and well deserved.

Complete list of winners: Best film: Argo; Best Director: Ben Affleck, Argo; Best actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln; Best actress: Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty; Supporting actor: Phillip Seymour Hoffman, The Master; Supporting actress: Anne Hathaway, Les Miserable; Original Screenplay: Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained.

Speaking of movies, I really want to see Promised Land but have not yet been able to get there and now the times have changed at the local theater.  Missed it !  Oh well, eventually I will get it done!  Opening today two highly acclaimed movies, Gangster Squad and Zero Dark Thirty.  Both look spectacular with fantastic casts!

Later…
