Ben Affleck may have been snubbed by the Academy when it came to the Best Director category this year, but Argo is nominated for Best Picture, so he might as well put on a happy face and attend all the AMPAS events!
Ben was snapped at the Academy Awards nominations luncheon on Monday in Beverly Hills, and when he spotted Best Actress nominee Sally Field, the two shared a warm embrace. Aww, judging by that smile on her face, he must have made her day!
Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain seemed shocked when no less than a dozen fans wanted her autograph. C'mon honey, you've been nominated for two Oscars in the last two years ... get used to it!
Can't wait for the Oscars later this month!
