Though he may have been snubbed for an Academy Award this year, Ben Affleck was honored for his work with a cause close to his heart at the Cinema For Peace 2013 Gala For Humanity at the Beverly Hills hotel on Friday (January 11).
Joined by Cindy McCain, wife of Senator John McCain, the "Argo" star looked handsome in a gray suit and black tie.
He got snubbed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who failed to nominate him for the Best Director Oscar, and Ben Affleck showed his frustration during his acceptance speech at last night’s Critic’s Choice Awards (January 10).
The “Argo” helmsman was named Best Director by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, and he used his time at the podium to poke a little fun at the whole situation.
Earlier today (January 10) the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced their nominations for the 2013 Academy Awards, and though there were plenty of deserving recipients, other supposed shoo-ins ended up getting the shaft.
Though he was widely praised for his role in “Django Unchained,” Leonardo DiCaprio failed to snag a Best Supporting Actor nod.
