AND THE FANS SAY … `ARGO’

The clear favorite among fans in the Oscar bleachers was “Argo.”

The bleacher crowd forced actor-director Ben Affleck to stop an interview with their loud chants of “Ben! Ben! Ben!”

They gave the film’s producer, George Clooney, similar treatment and lavished applause on supporting actor nominee Alan Arkin.

Perhaps the strongest sign of fans’ love for the CIA thriller was when the group was polled for its choice for best picture before any actors hit the red carpet.

While the chanting was spirited for “Les Miserables” and some other films, it was clearly loudest for “Argo.”
