‘Argo’ Wins Big Prize, Day-Lewis Sets Record at Oscars
Argo had one more Hollywood ending to pull off this awards season. Mission accomplished.
Director Ben Affleck’s political thriller lived up to its favorite status and won three honors, including best picture, at the 85th Academy Awards.
“I was here 15 years ago and I had no idea what I was doing,” Affleck says, referring to his screenplay win for Good Will Hunting. “I was a kid. I never thought I would be back here and now I am because of so many of you.”
Daniel Day-Lewis won his record third best-actor statue for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln — his others came for 2007’s There Will Be Blood and 1989’s My Left Foot.
