After being snubbed in the Oscar nominations, Ben Affleck got a trophy after all, claiming the Best Director Critics' Choice award for his movie Argo. "I'd like to thank the Academy," Affleck joked before saying, "This is the one that counts." After thanking his cast and crew, Affleck thanked his family, nothing his daughter wrote on his hand for luck, "I guess it worked!" In August, Affleck made headlines again when Warner Bros. announced he will be playing Batman in a series of upcoming films, an announcement that was met with controversy.
