Affleck’s ‘Argo’ Wins Best Picture

Ben Affleck’s “Argo,” a film about a fake movie, has earned a very real prize: best picture at the Academy Awards. In share-the-wealth mode, Oscar voters spread Sunday’s honors among a range of films, with “Argo” winning three trophies but “Life of Pi” leading with four. Daniel Day-Lewis became the first person to win three best-actor Oscars, the latest coming for “Lincoln,” while “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence triumphed in Hollywood’s big games as best actress for “Silver Linings Playbook.” Ang Lee pulled off a major upset, winning best director for the shipwreck story “Life of Pi,” taking the prize over Steven Spielberg, who had been favored for “Lincoln.” It was the second directing Oscar for Lee, who also won for “Brokeback Mountain”/Associated Press.

Question: Which movie of the ones nominated for Best Picture do you plan to see next? Why?
