Ben Affleck's reputation sure has evolved!
He was the laughing stock of Hollywood when Gigli broke records at the Razzles, but now, a decade later, the actor/director/producer/writer is being heralded as the dissed darling of the 85th Academy Awards!
The world was FLUMMOXED this morning when Seth MacFarlane read off the nominees for best director without recognizing Ben's work on Argo!
Bradley Cooper, in particular, who was nominated for his performance in Silver Linings Playbook, thinks the dude got robbed!
Bradley was so passionate about the Academy overlooking Ben that he kind of sort of dissed Silver Lingings auteur David O. Russell by suggesting the wrong director got nominated!!
The world pretty unanimously agrees — it sucks to see Ben let out in the cold!
Jennifer Garner's hugely talented husband has been making films since 1993, but his only Oscar win was for writing Good Will Hunting.
His directorial debut, in case you were curious, was I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal at Disney.
We wish we were joking.
