Ben Affleck's Argo has another award to add to the trophy cabinet.

The City of Los Angeles is presenting its 2013 Made in Hollywood prize to Warner Bros for shooting much of the film in LA.

The award - which was given to silent movie hit The Artist last year - is being presented to Warner Bros chairman and CEO Barry Meyer at the studio, Variety reports.

Bafta-winner Argo spent around 31 million dollars on production in LA.

Locations used by director Ben - who also starred in the suspense thriller - included the Beverly Hilton Hotel, a Veterans Affairs facility in North Hills which served as the US Embassy in Tehran and a home in Hancock Park, which was made to look like the Canadian ambassador's house.
