Last night, Casey Affleck won the Oscar for Best Actor.

2. The decision to give Affleck the award has caused controversy due to the sexual harassment allegations brought against him in 2010.

The decision to give Affleck the award has caused controversy due to the sexual harassment allegations brought against him in 2010.

Two women – a producer and a cinematographer – who worked with Affleck on the film I’m Still Here filed separate lawsuits accusing him of sexual harassment, including unwelcome physical advances. One of the women alleged that Affleck had snuck into bed with her in the middle of the night and that she had woken up
to him “caressing her back.” She said she had no idea how long he’d been there.

Affleck vehemently denied the allegations, and both cases were settled out of court. A statement given by his spokesperson said: “The disputes have been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties and the lawsuits are being dismissed.”

3. Plenty of people expressed disappointment that Affleck had won.

6. And it appears that Brie Larson, who has advocated for survivors of sexual assault for years, was disappointed too.

12. Many people also mentioned the fact that Larson actually won an Oscar last year for her portrayal of a rape survivor in Room.

13. During the ceremony last year, Lady Gaga also performed her song “Til It Happens to You”, about sexual assault, and was joined on stage by other survivors.

15. It was also pointed out that this is the second time this awards season where Larson has been tasked with announcing Affleck’s win and presenting him with his award. The same thing happened last month when he won the Golden Globe for Best Actor.
