Blowing past the distant Civil War history of "Lincoln" and the more controversial recent history of "Zero Dark Thirty," director and star Ben Affleck's rousing, reassuringly apolitical thriller "Argo" won Sunday's Academy Award for best picture. This was a rebuke to the very academy bestowing the prize: Affleck failed to receive a directing nomination for "Argo," joining "Zero Dark Thirty" director Kathryn Bigelow as the evening's most conspicuous snubs.

The 70th Annual Golden Globes

"Argo," the retelling of the dramatic rescue of American diplomats during the Iran hostage crisis, and "Les Miserables," a big-screen adaptation of the Broadway musical, were the big winners at this year's Golden Globes.  But the night truly belonged to co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler whose good-natured irreverence was a welcome balance after the last three years when British comedian Ricky Gervais turned the show into a roast. The annual honors by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association unofficially launches the movie industry's awards season.

The Apartment  (1960)

Wilder became a screenwriter in the late 1920s while living in Berlin. After the rise of Nazi Party, Wilder, who was Jewish, left for Paris, where he made his directorial debut. He relocated to Hollywood in 1933, and in 1939 he had a hit when he co-wrote the screenplay to the screwball comedy Ninotchka. Wilder established his directorial reputation after helming Double Indemnity (1944), a film noir he co-wrote with mystery novelist Raymond Chandler. Wilder earned the Best Director and Best Screenplay Academy Awards for the adaptation of a Charles R. Jackson story The Lost Weekend, about alcoholism.  In 1950, Wilder co-wrote and directed the critically acclaimed Sunset Boulevard.
