2/24/13 ARGO DIRECTOR, BEN AFFLECK, ARRIVING AT OSCARS RED CARPET, ACADEMY AWARDS 2013 (vid by vander)...the story is that I was there behind the barricade, along with other fans, watching the various movie makers arrive...we had seen a few instantly recognizable people such as Michael Douglas and George Clooney...but the traffic was starting to slow and it was about time for the show..and I was about go go, when suddenly a car drove up and everybody began to scream...and i looked and there was Ben Affleck and his wife getting out of their car and briskly walking towards the entrance at hollywood & highland! what a moment ! and his film went on to win best picture . As you can tell, it was hard to get a clear, steady, shot with the crowd and the barricade but you still get a decent glimpse
