, a movie about the fake movie that did, has quickly become the movie that could. Julia Roberts announced that Ben Affleck‘s tense, entertaining thriller about the 1979 hostage crisis in Iran won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture, Drama. After being dealt a rough blow by the Academy (despite being nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Affleck was surprisingly snubbed as a Best Director nominee), the film is gaining momentum heading into the Oscars. In addition to winning big at the Globes, Affleck won Best Director at the Globes and the movie also won Best Picture at the Critics Choice Movie Awards.
