It's been a roller coaster of an awards season for the cast and crew of the political thriller "Argo." In the weeks since director and star Ben Affleck was passed over for an Oscar nomination for best director, the film has won big at the Golden Globes, the Producers Guild Awards and now the SAG Awards.
Just a few hours before stepping on stage with Affleck and fellow cast members to accept the SAG Award for best ensemble in a motion picture, "Argo's" John Goodman spoke with Times reporter Amy Kaufman on the red carpet about how Affleck has been handling the twists and turns.
"He's got a really good attitude about not getting nominated by the Academy Awards," Goodman said. "He just said we've been so blessed with everything else that's come our way."
Goodman also took a moment to reflect on his early acting idols (first and foremost: Marlon Brando) and his motivations ("to move people, and to actually not work for a living"). View the video above for more.
