He then directed, co-wrote and starred in the crime drama ''The Town'' (2010) and directed and starred in the political thriller ''Argo'' (2012); both were critical and commercial successes. For the latter, Affleck won the Golden Globe and BAFTA Award for Best Director, and the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Academy Award for Best Picture.
