Casey Affleck just won Best Actor at the 2017 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 26) for his work in Manchester By the Sea.

The 41-year-old actor was nearly speechless on stage and begun his speech by thanking Denzel Washington, another nominee in the category, for teaching him how to act in his childhood.

“I’m really proud to be a part of this community…I’m just dumbfounded that I’m included,” Casey said in his speech.

    It helped us see how racist people are on Twitter…

    Well maybe the reaction would be different if Casey Affleck wasn’t a sexual predator, right?

  • GreatCatSbee

    You think? Why did people whine about Ruth Negga then? Is Emma Stone a sexual predator too?

  • Danae

    I’m referring to this one particular situation with Casey. I’m not following everyone’s reaction regarding every single Award and possible racism. Oscars always ignite that conflict so it’s kinda hard to avoid someone feeling hurt.

    Well Casey, I’m dumbfounded that you managed to beat Denzel Washington. Guess they didn’t want too many black actors winning that night, two was enough.
