Directors Guild of America Awards 2013 Winners : 65th Annual DGA Awards

Ben Affleck Wins Best Director Award - Directors Guild of America Awards 2013
Yesterday, at the 2013 Directors Guild of America Awards, Ben Affleck has won the top film honor of the best-director for his CIA thriller “Argo”
Generally the winner of Directors Guild of America Awards goes on to win the Oscars, but Affleck is surprisingly not nominated for an Oscar as a director.
The CIA thriller has emerged as an awards-season favorite, winning Golden Globe, Critics Choice, Screen Actors Guild and Producers Guild of America awards for best picture.
Backstage at the Directors Guild honors, Affleck said he had nothing but respect for the academy and that “you’re not entitled to anything.”
“I’m thrilled and honored that the academy nominated me as a producer of the movie,” said Affleck. “I know our movie, we’re a little bit underdog and a little bit the little engine that could, and you take me out of it maybe helps … it’s just about that picture. I feel like it’s OK, I’m really lucky, I’m in a good place.”
