We LOVE Ben! Now all he needs to do is take the DGA award and show up the Oscars for the tainted and flawed sideshow that it always has been.

What a self-obsessed idiot. "I was depressed...and then 12 hours later I won another award. And then at the weekend, two more..."
He's just chasing awards now. Not to mention, he already has an Oscar. He should STFU. It's not like the other Best Director nominees are unworthy - my gawd, Ang Lee? Michael Haneke? And he's in good company with Bigelow.

Maybe he'll properly wipe his ass. It's so hairy and disgusting. I was in the same gym as him and he was taking a shower and he's like 84% hairy. The only hairless spot is his bald potato head.
But you could see his dingle berries for miles.

I love how they feel they are entitled to Oscars - its not enough to do the work and get well paid and recognition, they have to get awards as well. Can one even remember who won 2 or 3 years ago ?

Phyllis Harper was raped and killed her rapist and now she will be sent to prison for the rest of her life.
She was raped by a lesbian when she was little and she just had enough when her next door neighbor raped her some thirty years later.

The idea that Ben Affleck should get a nom at the expense of Haneke, Lee or Russell is preposterous.
He's a pedestrian director with an outsize ego, and I couldn't be happier that he was publicly humiliated.
And r2? Since when have the DGA been the 'main show' and the Oscars the 'side show'? Bwahaha.
I certainly can remember who won 2 or 3 years ago, r7: namely Kathryn Bigelow and Tom Hooper. It's not difficult, because the Oscars are a big deal.
But I have no clue who won the DGA 2 or 3 years ago!

"Argo" just won the PGA for Best Picture. So maybe the talk that it now has the momentum to win BP at the Oscars over "Lincoln" is true?
Nothing against the film (haven't seen it) but with all of the "oh poor Ben" talk in the media following the nominations, it now seems like the voters of all these awards (including the upcoming Oscars) will feel the need to "make it up" to Affleck as if his being overlooked by the Academy was a blatant, collective act of aggression against him by its members (and now everybody else who got nominated over him must pay the price for getting what he CLEARLY deserved to get instead of them).
Sounds ridiculous, yes, but that's what it smacks of.
|by Anonymous||reply 18||01/27/2013|
Argo is definitely winning all of these awards because of the BD snub. Critics Choice and the Golden Globes were determined before the Oscar nominations, but I bet that if they had a week more of voting then SLP or Lincoln, the two academy favorites, would have won.
Lincoln is NOT the strong frontrunner that people once thought. I wouldn't even call it the favorite anymore. DDL is a lock but if the movie doesn't win the DGA or the SAG tonight then it's unlikely that it wins BP. Since Affleck didn't get the nom I can totally see SLP winning in the end (I think it will win the SAG tonight).

It's all the usual Datalounge bitter envy at someone attractive who has happened to achieve a great deal of success. His three directorial outings have been critically praised.

r38, what if we have friends, and just dislike looks trumping quality?
Warren Beatty, Redford, Kevin Costner, Ben Affleck all were "praised", and rashly every time.
For none of them went on to become great directors. Their so-called talent was exhausted pretty quickly.
Maybe some of us take issue with superficiality?
It's you who sucks for defending someone as lame and famewhory as Ben fucking Affleck.
Michael Haneke is the one who got the real critics' praise this year, sweeping most of their prizes across the country AND the globe.
The Golden Globes/SAG/PGA are firmly outside this credible circle; they do nothing but fellate their 'stahs', so that they'll show up to their respective ceremonies.
The SAGs are a joke, really. Nicole Kidman nominated for her stunt acting turn in Paper Boy? Bwahaha.

I read some article listing him as one of those directors who's "overdue" for an Oscar. I found it laughable. How many films has he directed that they consider him "overdue?"
I mean. Scorcese was "overdue" when he finally won his Oscar. Affleck is not. He's a good story teller. But he is not "overdue" for recognition. He needs to thank his handlers because they are soing an amazing job of selling Ben Affleck.

R48, she wore a white dress with white ribbons and maybe a little baby's breath in her hair. I read that in the Inside Oscar book years ago that it was an old wedding dress she found in a thrift store. The song the orchestra played as she walked up to the podium was "Wouldn't It Be Nice". The two who presented the award were Madeline Kahn and Joel Grey.

This thread is filled with disgusting troll posts.
I just want to say, no matter how much success a person enjoys,no matter what he has accomplished, when you get the highest award you can receive, from the industry to which you have dedicated your life, and that award comes from your peers, who actually vote for you, then that is a wonderful thing, it's a crowning achievement.
So yes, he wants it. I think I'd like to see him do more films before he nails a best director award. But when you look at the acclaim and popularity of guys like Clint Eastwood or Ron Howard, then yes, Affleck belo0ngs in the awards season discussion. Personally, I loved The Town. I enjoyed Argo. They were both enormously entertaining.
