Ben Affleck might have been snubbed with the Oscars nominations, but he owned the Best Director category at the Critics' Choice Awards Thursday night!
For his excellent work with Argo, Jennifer Garner's main man got the coveted award, soothing any snubbing wounds from earlier.
Hope you enjoy it, Ben! And don't even worry about the Oscars… you're young! You've got plenty of projects ahead of you.

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!

Amy Adams has officially signed on for a rematch with David O. Russell.
The reunion was a no-brainer for the Muppets star considering the pair's last project, The Fighter, netted Amy an Academy Award nomination.

The always adorable Amy will play the partner of con artist Bradley Cooper while they both try to evade Jeremy Renner's FBI agent.
Sounds like she's caught between a rock and a hard place! Ring the starting bell already!

The film's first trailer (above) makes it look like a knockout! Cooper looks as good as his acting! And Lawrence seems to be at the top of her game, while Chris Tucker…
