On Sunday morning wife Jennifer Garner was busy getting her hair and makeup done for the Oscars, so it was Ben Affleck and their nanny who took their daughter Violet to a local spelling bee, and she won!

Jen told E! News on the red carpet, "Our family has already had a great day, so congratulations to our sweetie." Ben added, "I was more nervous at the spelling bee than I am now, I don't know what that says. There was a lot of words. Let me tell you something, you and me might have been in trouble. We belong in the stands."

While Ben and Jen split parenting duties pretty evenly (well, when he's not working on a movie), he definitely raised a few eyebrows when he mentioned her during his acceptance speech for Best Picture last night.

"I want to thank my wife who I don't usually associate with Iran," he joked. "I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It's good. It is work but it's the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work." Judging by her face, she was just as surprised as we were, so maybe we should just chalk it up to Ben being nervous onstage?
