Oscars 2017: 89th Academy Awards - Who Will Win Best Actor?

But in this one moment, for those watching who were disgusted to see Affleck win, Larson reacted in protest.

He said: "I wish I had something bigger and more meaningful to say".

Casey Affleck took home the Oscar for Best Actor for his role as downtrodden handyman Lee Chandler in Manchester by the Sea, capping off an awards season that saw the actor win countless times for his performance. He plays Lee Chandler, a MA handyman who has to reckon with a tragedy from his past in order to take care of his teenage nephew.

Viewers also discussed how Larson refused to clap for Affleck when he won the award.

Will social media successfully predict the Best Film nomination at the Oscars?

Oh well! At least Casey got dressed up and had a super moving speech!

The 89th Annual Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, were held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center and aired on ABC. Larson, who later won an Oscar for her performance in Room, for her portrayal of a rape survivor, showed her support by standing at the edge of the stage, hugging each survivor as they left the venue.

In 2010, Affleck was sued by producer Amanda White and cinematographer, Magdalena Gorka, both of whom worked with him on Joaquin Phoenix mockumentary I'm Still Here. "It's been an advantage to be able to watch someone you love and you know so well go try to navigate the very tricky, rocky, sometimes hateful waters of being famous".

The year 2007 was a fruitful one for the actor, who notched up not only his Oscar-nominated turn in "Jesse James", but also his acclaimed starring role in the Miramax film "Gone Baby Gone". "I just want to thank her for being such a soldier through this process". So, since he won an award for the same film last night, was his shoutout to Ben just because he felt bad from last time?
