At the Golden Globes Awards ceremony, he picked up two of the evening’s biggest awards: first for Best Director, then for Best Drama Picture as Argo won over Lincoln.
Having been overlooked by the Academy Awards in both the directing and acting categories, this must have been a most satisfying validation for the multi-talented celeb.
But for us watching at home, the best part of Ben’s win was watching him honor Jennifer Garner.
“I want to thank my wife, who is the reason why I’m standing here,” he said as he accepted the directing award. “I adore you. I love you so much. Thanks for sitting through this. You are my everything.”
The couple also looked magnificent together on the red carpet: he in his tuxedo, she in a glittering strapless red gown. It was a rare adults-only moment for them; Ben and Jen are very much hands-on parents to their three children. The cameras often catch them taking daughters Violet and Seraphina to dance class or the farmers’ market, or bringing baby Samuel out in his stroller for a walk.
And when Jennifer appeared shortly afterward to present another award, she looked genuinely thrilled for her husband as she added a few names he’d left off his thank-you list.
A happy Hollywood couple? That’s a shining achievement to top any statuette.
Congratulations to Ben Affleck!
