Ben Affleck Celebrates a Big DGAs Win With Jennifer and More Stars
Ben Affleck had the support of his Antonio Berardi-clad wife, Jennifer Garner, at the Director's Guild Awards last night in LA. He took home the night's biggest honour, filmmaker of the year, for Argo. The award could mean big things for Ben's future — the filmmaker of the year winner has historically gone on to win best picture at the Oscars. Last night's awards also brought out many of Hollywood's biggest stars. Anne Hathaway was accompanied by her husband Adam Shulman to applaud her Les Misérables director, Tom Hooper, with her co-star Hugh Jackman. Sally Field, Helen Hunt and Lena Dunham also hit the red carpet. Many of the nominees actually began the festivities earlier that morning. Directors Kathryn Bigelow, Tom Hooper, Ang Lee and Steven Spielberg joined Ben at the DGA President's breakfast.
The DGAs weren't the first time Jen joined Ben this awards season. Just last weekend, Ben and Jen shared a couples' night out at the SAG Awards, where he added to his accolades with a an honour for Argo. The pair have much more to be excited about with his best picture nomination at the Oscars later this month — check out Ben and Jen's best awards season snaps so far.
