‘Argo’ Wins Best Picture, Drama at the 2013 Golden Globes
It was a good night for Ben Affleck – just a few short minutes after winning Best Director at the 2013 Golden Globes, his film ‘Argo’ won Best Picture.
Julia Roberts came out on stage to introduce the final award of the night, Best Picture, Drama. ‘Argo’ was a film that was once considered the film to beat at the Golden Globes and Oscars and then ‘Les Miserables,’ ‘Lincoln’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ came out and many felt that ‘Argo’ was no longer a serious candidate. But with a surprise win at the 2013 Golden Globes, ‘Argo’ proved it’s a force to reckon with.
The cast and crew took the stage (a star-studded affair if there ever was one), including producer George Clooney. Fellow producer Grant Heslov (who you might remember from his days as a character actor in ‘True Lies’ and more) and thanked Affleck and Tony Mendez, the real life CIA agent who inspired the ‘Argo’ story.
So with a big Best Picture win at the 2013 Golden Globes, do you think ‘Argo’ has a legitimate chance to win at the Oscars?
