"We're still a long shot," Affleck said, his underdog sentiments clashing with the words of his old friend Matt Damon, who presented Affleck with the Modern Master award, saying, "No one's going to be surprised if ['Argo'] wins the Oscar for best picture."

Receiving the weighty trophy, Affleck spent several minutes extolling Damon's "genius," prompting Damon to crack at one point, "Who's getting the award?"

"I was just feeling really grateful about Matt's speech," Affleck said a bit sheepishly afterward. "His friendship and support have meant a lot. I wouldn't be here without him."
