Oscar For Best Dad Goes To — Ben Affleck Took Daughter To Spelling Bee Just Before Academy Awards!

The competitive juices were flowing for all of the Afflecks Sunday: Before daddy Ben took home the best picture Academy Award for Argo, his daughter Violet won a spelling bee!

“I was more nervous at the spelling bee than I am now, I don’t know what that says,” Ben, who has three kids with Jen Garner — Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, and Samuel, 11 months — told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

“There [were] a lot of words. Let me tell you something, you and [I] might have been in trouble.”

Jen said Sunday meant “mayhem” for the Affleck household.

“Our daughter was in a spelling bee at the local rec center,” Garner told the E! network. “I was in hair and make-up so I couldn’t take her, so Ben took her in the middle of everything. She won!

“Our family has already had a great day, so congratulations to our sweetie. And then she had a basketball game. Life goes on. No one really cares!”
