The City of Los Angeles is presenting its 2013 Made in Hollywood prize to Warner Bros for shooting much of the film in LA.

The award - which was given to silent movie hit The Artist last year - is being presented to Warner Bros chairman and CEO Barry Meyer at the studio, Variety reports.

Bafta-winner Argo spent around 31 million dollars on production in LA.

Locations used by director Ben - who also starred in the suspense thriller - included the Beverly Hilton Hotel, a Veterans Affairs facility in North Hills which served as the US Embassy in Tehran and a home in Hancock Park, which was made to look like the Canadian ambassador's house.
