Ben Affleck has won the coveted best director gong at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards.
The Hollywood star's film Argo was also named best picture at the ceremony.
Ben, whose film was nominated for seven Oscars including best picture but not best director, accepted the award at the Broadcast Film Critics Association's 18th annual awards in Los Angeles, joking as he took the trophy that he'd "like to thank the Academy".
