Ben Affleck Reflects on 'Once in a Lifetime' Awards Season in THR Exit Interview (Video)

Affleck describes his journey with "Argo," from September's Telluride Film Fest to this month's Oscars, as "one of the most meaningful experiences of my whole life."

During The Hollywood Reporter's recent Nominees Night at Spago, I pulled aside Argo director/producer/star Ben Affleck -- a best picture (if not best director) Oscar nominee this year and winner of the DGA, Critics' Choice and Golden Globe awards for best director -- for a brief chat about his amazing journey with the film. Thus far, it has taken him from the film's world premiere at last September's Telluride Film Festival to the Oscar nominees luncheon last Monday, with many other memorable stops in-between. The 40-year-old husband of Jennifer Garner and father of three young children calls it "one of the most meaningful experiences of my whole life" and says he is savoring every minute of it because it is "probably a once in a lifetime experience for me."
