The 65th Annual Directors Guild Of America Awards took place on February 2, 2013 and once again it was Ben Affleck’s Argo that snagged the feature film award. Affleck’s definitely not earning an Oscar for helming Argo, but with the amount of awards he’s piling up, his trophy shelf is going to look full even without that particular award.
 
The ceremony announcing the winners was hosted by Kelsey Grammer and included Cedric the Entertainer, Bryan Cranston, Dave Grohl, Taylor Hackford, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Steven Soderbergh, Eric Stonestreet, and Sam Waterston as presenters.
