Bradley Cooper Says Ben Affleck Deserved Argo Oscar Nod Over His Own Director?

ben affleck oscar snub argo director bradley cooper seth macfarlane silver linings playbook

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.

    No, the world wasn't. A lot of people were not surprised. This worship of Affleck is absolutely ridiculous and proves the non-nomination was warranted.

    The movie was ok…however, it TOTALLY downplayed the crucial role that Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor and the Canadian Embassy played in the hostage rescue. The TV movie that was done immediately after it happened was 10 time better.

    So true Elvisal, Canadians have class and are a good friend to U.S.A. The Canadian involvement was very instrumental in getting the hostages out of there.

    Could be that because Affleck changed the story entirely from the true historic facts of the Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor who was the real Hero. Affleck's version is Pure Fiction not at all factual. If it was not for the Canadian Embassy in Tehran -the Americans would never have left the country. Affleck is a Joke, he's got no talent, doesn't take talent to use a historic event and twist it to a Lie.

    Re: thebigboot – How true that is, Affleck is a lying jerk face.

    Bradley didn't say that Ben deserved it over his own director. Perez is totally wrong in this case just like he was over that "Chris Martin is cheating on Gwyneth with Keira Knightley story." Here's an article with the interview where Bradley talks about how much David O'Russell deserved a nomination. -

    What? This is ridiculous. Just because he said Affleck got robbed, it didn't mean that he didn't think his own director should have gotten robbed. Silly stretch there. He made a point of saying, actually, that he was thrilled to see Russell nominated because he deserved it so much. Must you start fires where there are none?

    It wasnt that good.

    Ben Affleck is a very talent individual who has been overlooked because he did a couple of bad movies. Furthermore, because a few people dissed his talents, some are quick to dismiss him when he in fact is a very talented director and actor. People, stop being sheep and form your own opinion!!!!!!!
