Ben Affleck: Jennifer Garner keeps me calm

'Argo' filmmaker Ben Affleck says his wife Jennifer Garner is a calming influence when he gets a feeling of ''terror'' at the beginning of a new project, and she reminds him it always ends up better than he expects. Despite forging an impressive career as an actor and filmmaker - winning multiple awards for his movie 'Argo', while the film itself was awarded Best Picture at the Oscars - the star still gets a feeling of ''terror'' he's going to mess it all up.

Best picture Oscar race remains muddled after Toronto film festival

Two years ago, Toronto International Film Festival audiences fell in love with Jennifer Lawrence in "Silver Linings Playbook" and loudly cheered all the Canadian references in Ben Affleck's crowd-pleasing "Argo." Then last year, "Gravity" dropped jaws and "12 Years a Slave" had its gala audience clapping in unison through the closing credits before the inevitable, explosive standing ovation.

The Movies People Will Be Talking About at the Toronto Film Festival

It wasn't too many years ago that someone first called the Toronto International Film Festival the unofficial start of the Oscar season, a moniker that rings especially true when considering that the last seven Best Picture winners made the trip to Canada. That's an impressive streak, but also a depressing reality if you're an entertainment journalist: If Thursday is the starting gun and the Feb. 22 Academy Awards is the finish line, that means there are 172 news cycles to go - a span that covers six months - before any of us gets a "real" vacation.
