Ah, sweet revenge.

Ben Affleck didn't get a Best Director Oscar nomination for Argo, but he did win a Critics' Choice Movie Award Thursday night. "I would like to thank the Academy," he joked. "I'm kidding. I'm kidding! This is the one that counts." He thanked the Broadcast Film Critics Association, adding, "There was a time where the Ben Affleck Critics' Award was a Saturday Night Live sketch, so this is a very, very cool and exciting thing, particularly to me, because there are so many unbelievable directors in this category who I can only look up to, and so many who didn't get nominated, and I'm really humbled by that. "
