Ben Affleck was named outstanding director for Argo at the 65th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards on Saturday night.
Affleck previously won big at the Producers Guild Awards, the Critics Choice Awards, and at the Golden Globes earlier this month, where he took home the award for Best Director, with the film also winning the Best Picture category.
During his acceptance speech, Ben talked a little bit about the transition from being an actor to getting behind the camera. "I got to a point in my life where I was really down, really confused, really felt beset on all sides by life, didn't know what was going to happen," he explained to the crowd. "[So] I thought, 'I should be a director!'"
In the press room after the show, Ben also chatted about his Oscar snub, telling reporters, "You're not entitled to win anything. You're not entitled to anything in life. I'm really happy -- I'm thrilled and honored -- that the Academy nominated me as a producer for the movie...It's okay. I'm really lucky. I'm in a great place."
