With BAFTA and Scripter awards added to the trophy shelf, is Ben Affleck and his film "Argo" a lock for Oscars?
With BAFTA and Scripter awards added to the trophy shelf over the weekend, are Ben Affleck and "Argo" unstoppable en route to the Oscars?
Yes, "Argo" keeps collecting awards. Why? Perhaps it's the bandwagon effect? Or maybe Affleck's charm as he makes the rounds on the awards circuit? And "Argo" is a very likeable movie.
And what about Emmanuelle Riva, star of Michael Haneke's gripping "Amour"? Does her Best Actress win at BAFTA signal more honors on Oscars night?
Sharon Waxman and I discuss the Oscar race as we make our way toward the finish line on Feb. 24.
