Argo is a bullshit win. No remarkable performances, an unearned ending, and a perfect example of giving into the CIA fetish while giving other countries the shaft.
I'm glad an American said this before I did. "CIA fetish" is a great way to describe it. I feel insulted that Canada's involvement has been minimized and Affleck's character (who in reality was in Iran for maybe 48 hour) is basically given all the limelight.
All of McFarlane's humor could have been inserted into a Family Guy episode. He was a poor choice and a poor host.
