ARGO directed by Ben Affleck Wins Best Picture at 2013 Oscars
By SENATUS News | 25 February 2013

Ben Affleck on receiving the Oscar for Best Picture at the 2013 Academy Awards, said "I want to acknowledge Steven Spielberg, who is a genius. The other eight films have as much right to be here. I wanna thank Canada, our friends in Iran, my wife - for working on our marriage, it's the best kind of work and there's no-one I'd rather work with. I was here 15 years ago [when he won an award for writing Good Will Hunting with Matt Damon] and I had no idea what I was doing. I was just a kid.

"I never thought I would be back here - because of so many of you who are here tonight. You've taught me you have to work harder than you think you do. You can't hold grudges. It doesn't matter if you get knocked down in life; you've gotta get back up."
