    Director Ben Affleck accepts the Best Director Award for "Argo" onstage at the 18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on January 10, 2013 in Santa Monica, California.

    Hours after a surprise snub in Academy Award nominations, Ben Affleck won best director and his film "Argo" was named best picture at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards.

    Affleck, whose film was nominated for seven Oscars including best picture but not best director, accepted the award Thursday night at the Broadcast Film Critics Association's 18th annual awards in Los Angeles, joking as he took the trophy that he'd "like to thank the Academy."

    Daniel Day-Lewis from "Lincoln" and Jessica Chastain from "Zero Dark Thirty" both added to earlier Oscar nods with Critics' Choice wins in the top acting categories.

    Philip Seymour Hoffman won best supporting actor for his role in "The Master" and Anne Hathaway won best supporting actor for "Les Miserables."

    The ceremony was broadcast on the CW network.
