Lincoln Snubbed: Golden Globe Awards 2013


Argo takes home the award for Best Picture and Best Director snubbing Lincoln, the film everyone thought was a sure thing.

Ben Affleck, the director of Argo, one for Best Director beating out Steven Spielberg and Kathryn Bigelow for the coveted prize. Daniel Day-Lewis did represent his film by winning the Best Actor award.

At the Academy Awards Lincoln is the top-billed nominee with 12 nominations; Argo was snubbed with the lack of nomination for director Ben Affleck. 

It seems as if the Hollywood Foreign Press took a different root by awarding Ben Affleck the prize for both his direction and his film. What do you think? Did Affleck and Argo deserve the prize?
