Argo’s director and star Ben Affleck broke down in tears recalling his first days in Hollywood while accepting the win with his producing partner George Clooney. Affleck gushed to wife Jennifer Garner in the audience and said, “There are eight great films that have every right, as much a right to be up here as we do.” Presenter Jack Nicholson was joined by Michelle Obama from the White House to crown the night’s big winner.
Jennifer Lawrence took a tumble on the way to the stage in accepting Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook. It sparked a standing ovation that she asked to end over embarrassment.
