SAG Awards 2013 Winners: 'Argo' Takes Top Prize; Is Best Picture Oscar Next?

This would be an impressive feat for the film, considering its director, Ben Affleck, got snubbed from the Academy Award nominations for Best Director earlier this month (the last film to come away with the Best Picture Oscar without a Best Director nominee was "Driving Miss Daisy" in 1989).
