The filmmaker failed to score an Oscar nomination from the Academy for his critically-acclaimed movie Argo, only to be rewarded for his efforts by the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
Affleck appeared stunned when his name was read, and went on to allude to this morning’s snub in his acceptance speech.
“I would like to thank the Academy,” he quipped. “I’m kidding, I’m kidding. This is the one that counts.”
And, at the end of the awards show, Argo was named Best Picture of the Year.
Gossip Cop will add video of Affleck’s acceptance speech later.
