On Tuesday, Casey Affleck spoke about his past sexual harassment allegations after he faced backlash for winning Best Actor at the 89th Academy Awards.  Affleck sat down for an interview with the Boston Globe, where he was asked about the widespread criticism of his Oscars win.  Affleck said, “I believe that any kind of mistreatment of anyone for any reason is unacceptable and abhorrent, and everyone deserves to be treated with respect in the workplace and anywhere else.  There’s really nothing I can do about it.  Other than live my life the way I know I live it and to speak to what my own values are and how I try to live by them all the time.”

In 2010, Affleck was sued for sexual harassment by producer Amanda White and cinematographer Magdalena Gorka, who both worked on “I’m Still Here” with him.  The women alleged that Affleck and other male crew members harangued them with unwanted sexual comments, advances and intimidation throughout filming.  Both lawsuits were settled out of court, and Affleck has continued to deny the claims.

After Affleck took home the Best Actor Academy Award on Sunday, many people on Twitter reacted with frustration.  Actor B.J. Novak tweeted:

One Twitter account called Feminist Frequency posted:

Writer and producer Gary Janetti chimed in:

On Sunday night, the 89th Academy Awards were held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.  The night was full of memorable moments, from host Jimmy Kimmel’s teasing of Matt Damon, Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali’s important Oscar wins, to several political statements throughout the night.

But perhaps the most unforgettable moment came right at the tail end of the ceremony when “La La Land” was mistakenly named Best Picture instead of the real winner, “Moonlight.”  Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to open the Best Picture envelope and read off the film’s name, during which Beatty seemed to pause for comic effect before announcing, “La La Land.”  The “La La Land” crew took the stage to accept the award and even started giving speeches before the mistake was realized.  “La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz went up to the mic and said, “You guys, I’m sorry, no.  There’s a mistake.  ‘Moonlight,’ you guys won Best Picture.”  After a few moments, the “Moonlight” cast and crew ascended the stage where they exchanged hugs and words with the “La La Land” team.  Beatty chimed in later: “I want to tell you what happened.  I opened the envelope and it said, ‘Emma Stone, La La Land.’  That’s why I took such a long look at Faye, and at you.  I wasn’t trying to be funny.”

Watch the entire awkward moment below.
