Ben Affleck wins Best Director at DGA Awards

From WENN.com

The actor/moviemaker missed out on a Best Director Oscar nod last month (Jan13) but he has since picked up honours at the Critics Choice Awards and Golden Globes, among other events - and on Saturday he added a DGA gong to his haul.

Still stunned by his success, Affleck took to the stage at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Hollywood to accept the nomination for Argo just before his name was called as the category winner, and told the audience, ""I look out and see all these great directors. I feel I should be auditioning.""

It was also a big night for Hollywood 'it' girl Lena Dunham, who took home the prize for Best Comedy Series (Girls), and Jay Roach, who picked up the Best Movies for Television & Mini-Series honour for political drama Game Change.

The winners list is:
