The people behind "Argo" hope to pick up some more hardware for their trophy cases at Sunday's Academy Awards, but in the meantime they've added another accolade to their accomplishments list.
On Friday, Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge presented the film with the second annual Made in Hollywood award, which recognizes films that are shot primarily in Los Angeles.
“‘Argo’ is a great film that was shot in a great location: the city of Los Angeles,” LaBonge said while presenting the honor to Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer. “When filmmakers choose not to film in Los Angeles, we risk losing the creative force that makes Hollywood the entertainment capital of the world.”
Filmmakers spent 48 days in Southern California filming "Argo," which shot in many Los Angeles locations despite being set in 1970s Iran.
