The Directors Guild Awards were held on Saturday in Los Angeles, and it was another big night for Ben Affleck! The actor/director was awarded the evening’s top prize, Outstanding Directorial Achievement, for his film, Argo, and he thanked his wife, Jennifer Garner (in Antonio Berardi), and their children in his loving acceptance speech. “I have to just thank my wife for being the best person in the world. I love you,” Affleck said. “I don’t need to look at the teleprompter to know why I want to thank you. I want to thank you because I love you.“ And he wasn’t the only winner: Lena Dunham (in Thakoon) went home with a DGA for the pilot of Girls, while the Les Miserables cast showed up, too, with director Tom Hooper staying close to stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway (in Valentino) throughout the night. Congrats, everyone—on to the Oscars!

While Ben Affleck is more than excited about his Best Director and Best Motion Picture Golden Globes nominations for Argo, there’s still one thing that’s left unsettled about the movie—his wardrobe. “There’s a clause in my contract that I get to keep all the clothes I wear in the movie,” the actor/director (in Gucci) told InStyle.com at the BAFTA Tea Party in Los Angeles. “But of course in this one [Argo], I’ve now been left with a lot of 1970s Brooks Brothers jackets. So, I need to figure out what to do with all of them!” We smell an eBay auction!

Ben Affleck is more than just a leading actor and director—he’s a family man! “Naturally family is the most important thing in my life,” Affleck told reporters at last night’s National Board of Review Awards in New York City where he took home the Special Achievement in Filmmaking honor for his film, Argo. “I’ve really learned to appreciate this stuff. Family makes any achievements that you’re able to have in your life that much richer.” The actor married Jennifer Garner in 2005, and the couple have three kids together, Violet, 7, Seraphina, 4, and Samuel, 11 months. And he’ll have plenty more to celebrate with his family this awards season, as the Golden Globes and Oscars are both on deck. ”If it was just me, I’d go home alone and it wouldn’t have the same resonance.“
