He is a better director. I hope Argo wins everything, despite not me giving a shit about such things.
Oddly enough, he seems to be a better actor when he's directing himself - his best performances were in Argo and The Town, imo.
I agree about Argo too, easily the best of the oscar nommed films this year, though between Les Mis, Lincoln and Life of Pi I don't think it's in with a shot of anything besides screenplay.
