"Argo" director Ben Affleck walked away with top honors from the Directors Guild of America on February 2 at the group's annual award ceremony.

The CIA thriller has emerged as an awards-season favorite, winning Golden Globe, Critics Choice, Screen Actors Guild and Producers Guild of America awards for best picture. However, despite winning the top DGA honor, Affleck is surprisingly not nominated for an Oscar as a director.

Malik Bendjelloul won the DGA's documentary award for "Searching for Sugar Man," a film on the fate of Rodriquez, a critically acclaimed but obscure singer-songwriter from the 1970s. The film also is nominated for best documentary at the Oscars. Jay Roach won in the TV movies and miniseries category for "Game Change," which stars Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in her run for vice-president in 2008.

The Directors Guild Awards can be one of the most-accurate forecasts for who will take home the big prize Best Picture. Check out the full list of 2013 Oscar nominees here.
