Ben Affleck Was Snubbed On Purpose
While the biggest story from the 2013 Academy Awards is the non-nomination for Argo director Ben Affleck, the star himself joked: "I also didn't get the acting nomination. I noticed no one was saying I was snubbed there." But it was such a surprise, some are wondering if the filmmakers pushed for the snub to bring outraged momentum to Argo's floundering awards push, which it did. Now Argo is a lock for the Oscar for Best Picture.
