Argo Wins Oscar Best Picture 2013



I was disappointed when Ben Affleck didn't get a nod for this year's nominees for Oscars Best Director. Thinking that my favorite movie of the year will be ignored this year, I decided to not watch the Oscars. But it wasn't ignored at all, Argo won this year's Best Picture! A well-deserved win I must say.  Even my other bets won! Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained, and of course Anne Hathaway's 3 minutes singing I Dreamed A Dream is already an "Oscar performance" with or without the nomination. 

I'm so glad. Maybe I should not watch the Oscars next year again. :D
