The Oscar for best picture was won by "Argo," the true tale of a secret rescue mission in Iran during the Carter administration. It beat out "Lincoln," the story of how black Americans were rescued from slavery. Does this mean Jimmy Carter's stock is on the rise? Nope, but Ben Affleck has certainly become a blue chip player in Hollywood. Politics -- not the Hollywood kind, but the Washington kind -- played a significant role in public perceptions of both films, as well as of a third that was nominated for best picture.

Former SafeNet Inc. executive Carole D. Argo pleaded guilty yesterday to a federal charge that she illegally manipulated the Belcamp-based company's stock option program to boost the value of awards and bonuses by millions of dollars for herself, former CEO Anthony A. Caputo and others. Argo, 46, entered a guilty plea to one count of securities fraud in a New York federal court yesterday. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $5 million fine; she is scheduled for sentencing before U.S. District Judge Jed S. Rakoff on Jan. 21. Argo, of Baltimore, served as the Harford County encryption-technology company's chief financial officer until she resigned, along with Caputo, in October 2006.

NEW YORK -- Carole D. Argo, a former chief financial officer at Belcamp-based SafeNet Inc., was sentenced to six months in prison yesterday by a Manhattan federal court judge for her role in manipulating the company's stock-option awards. She pleaded guilty in October to one count of securities fraud for falsifying the Harford County company's financial reports, in an effort to earn Argo, her boss and some of her other colleagues awards and bonuses worth millions. Prosecutors say she illegally backdated stock options without recording the necessary compensation charges.

Fresh off becoming the first director since 1990 to helm a Best Picture winner without being nominated himself, Ben Affleck swore that's not a distinction he loses sleep over. "I'm not going to spend a lot of time second-guessing" the academy, he said, clutching the Oscar he'd just won as a producer for "Argo. " After all, he noted, academy voters did give him an Oscar, just not one for directing. Still, the normally self-effacing Affleck promised, people might see some changes in him, now that he's a two-time Oscar winner (he'd previously shared a screenwriting award with pal Matt Damon for "Good Will Hunting")

Being snubbed might have been the best thing to happen to Ben Affleck. His film “Argo” took the best picture Oscar on Sunday night at the 85 th Academy Awards - more than a little solace, perhaps, for being snubbed in the directing category. Other marquee winners were Daniel Day-Lewis for lead actor for “Lincoln,” Jennifer Lawrence for lead actress for “Silver Linings Playbook,” and Ang Lee for director for “Life of Pi,” which won four Oscars, the most for any film.

William Goldenberg, who won the Editing Oscar for "Argo," faced perhaps his closest competition from an editor he knew well -- himself. Goldenberg was also nominated for "Zero Dark Thirty" (with Dylan Tichenor), a rare double nomination for a single person. Director Steven Soderbergh was once similarly conflicted, nominated for both "Traffic" and "Erin Brockovich" in 2001; he won for "Traffic. " Backstage, Goldenberg didn't seem too upset about losing to himself, or exultant over beating himself.

The Golden Globe nominees have a heavy literary bent this year, with a large number of adaptations featured in the key categories. Just consider the two "best picture" categories, which draw from novels and non-fiction books that have topped the best-seller lists -- or, in some cases, were sleepers that will draw many more readers now. (I, for one, can't wait to read more about the historic background behind "Lincoln. ") Here's a quick summary of some leading adaptations (and one movie tie-in)

Sculptor Toby Mendez, the man whose bronze statues immortalized Brooks Robinson, Cal Ripken Jr. and four other Orioles greats in Camden Yards ceremonies spread over the past six months, has certainly enjoyed his time in the spotlight. But now it's his dad's turn. The exploits of the elder Mendez, Tony, are at the center of the movie “Argo,” about a daring CIA-Canada rescue mission that got six Americans out of Iran during the 1979-1981 hostage crisis by convincing authorities they were part of a Canadian film crew.
