When Casey Affleck won the Oscar for Best Actor, presenter Brie Larson seemed a little less than excited for him. While the audience gave him a standing ovation, she chose not to applaud, and of course, people noticed. Many people assumed it probably had to do with the allegations of sexual misconduct and sexual harassment against Casey Affleck (in 2010, two women who'd worked with Affleck filed lawsuits against him; both were settled out of court).

Speaking to Vanity Fair at the Hollywood premiere of her movie, Kong: Skull Island, Brie Larson pretty much confirmed that, yes, her reaction had everything to do with that. She said, “I think that whatever it was that I did onstage kind of spoke for itself. I’ve said all that I need to say about that topic."

Brie Larson reacted basically the same way in January, when she presented Casey Affleck with the Golden Globe for Best Actor. Larson is probably happy that awards season is over and she won't have to deal with Casey Affleck publicly for at least another year.
