ICYMI: Larson presented Affleck with a Golden Globe back in January. You may recall her facial expression at the time. She was not pleased and did little to hide it.

This most likely has everything to do with allegations of sexual abuse filed against Casey Affleck back in 2010. A glaring detail that most of Hollywood seems to have overlooked while deciding who should win awards this year.
But Brie Larson, a vocal advocate for sexual abuse victims, has not overlooked Affleck's history. At last night's Oscars, when Affleck won the award for Best Actor for Manchester by the Sea, once again, Brie Larson was tasked with presenting it to him. And once again, she did very little to hide her true feelings, this time by refusing to clap for him.

All award season Brie Larson, who starred in a movie about sexual assault, had to present Casey Affleck all his awards. pic.twitter.com/L2WbQvSJNv— Marnie (@ChrnclsOfMarnia) February 27, 2017

Too bad there isn't an award for "Best at Taking a Stand Against Hollywood Bullshit Through Subtle Shade." Because Brie Larson would win that hands down. And if we were lucky, Casey Affleck would have to present it to her.
