Ben Affleck Takes to Twitter After Golden Globes Double Win: Argo Thank Yourself

Is it just us, or did the Hollywood Foreign Press essentially tell the Academy to Argo f--k themselves last night?

If nothing else, it was certainly a masterclass in timing, as just days after Oscar snubbed Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner's humbly grateful (if slightly forgetful) hubby managed to take home a shocking not one but two Golden Globes, for both Best Director and Best Motion Picture, Drama, at last night's ceremony.

That's some sweet Bengeance.

In any case, it seems even with his wife's picking up his thank-you thread when she strode to the podium last night, Affleck wasn't quite done sharing the love and took to Twitter early this morning (which very well may have been the tail end of his night), to offer up a bit more gratitude.

And no, he didn't want to thank the Academy. But he did want to thank someone just as powerful: George Clooney.

Still scratching your head over the meaning of Jodie Foster's Globes speech? We've got it all figured out!

"To hear your name included among directors I've long admired is incredible," he wrote. "To win? Wow, thank you HFPA. #GoldenGlobes," he wrote.

"Thank you Tony, George, Grant, Chris & the rest of the #Argo cast and crew. We won a #GoldenGlobes! Amazing!"

We're sure that standing ovation he received wasn't too shabby, either.
