Affleck Wins Directors' Top Award; Stallone Misfires at Box Office

Actor-turned-filmmaker Ben Affleck won the top honor from his peers at the Directors Guild of America on Saturday (February 2) for the movie "Argo," cementing the Iran hostage drama's frontrunner status for the Oscars. The Hollywood directors' recognition for Affleck, however, is an awkward result for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, which failed to nominate him for Best Director in what is considered one of the biggest snubs of this year's Oscars.
