Oscars 2013: “Argo” wins best picture

Ben Affleck’s Iran rescue thriller “Argo” has won best picture from the Academy Awards.

It’s the first best picture winner not to be nominated for best director since 1989’s “Driving Miss Daisy.” But despite the omission of Affleck – or perhaps buoyed by it – “Argo” emerged as the Oscar favorite, winning top honors from the directors, producers, screen actors and writers guilds.

From the White House, first lady Michelle Obama joined Jack Nicholson to help present the final prize.

“There are eight great films that have every right, as much a right to be up here as we do,” Affleck said of the other best-picture nominees, CBS News reports.
