Jan. 14, 2014

Ben Affleck won the Golden Globe Sunday for best director, days after he was overlooked for the same prize in the Oscar nominations.

Affleck won the prize for Argo, a film based on the true story of a CIA ruse to rescue US hostages from revolutionary Iran.

Affleck beat out Katheryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Ang Lee (Life of Pi), Steven Spielberg (Lincoln) and Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained).
