Casey Affleck and Nate Parker: How Hollywood handles race, power and privilege

The day after Oscar's craziest, shocking moment ever, questions still linger about why "La La Land" was announced best picture when "Moonlight" was the true winner.

L.A. Times' film critic Justin Chang comes to the conclusion that the two movies' fortunes were inextricable and the you-couldn’t-have-scripted-it finale oddly enough made sense.

Brie Larson did not applaud, which sparked speculation that she wasn't happy about Casey Affleck's Oscar win for supporting actor.

The actress -- who won an Oscar last year for her portrayal of a survivor of rape -- stood unmoving as Affleck delivered his acceptance speech at Sunday's Academy Awards.

Larson hugged him as she handed him the Oscar, but some interpreted her stance during his speech as a silent protest of sexual harassment. Affleck's Oscar campaign had been dogged by two 2010 civil suits involving allegations of sexual harassment, both of which were later settled.

With Hollywood's renewed embrace of Mel Gibson after his public fall from grace, there is a question of which accusations of wrongdoing are too big for a career to overcome and whether those standards are applied equally.

In 2016, the Oscar hopes of "The Birth of a Nation" director and star Nate Parker were derailed after college rape charges resurfaced, even though he was found to be innocent.

Where one man triumphed, another faltered. How does Hollywood handle allegations of impropriety and how much do race, power and a willingness to play the game matter?

Times reporter Tre'vell Anderson tackled the question in a commentary after Affleck’s Golden Globes victory in January.

For the record: A previous version of this story misstated that Affleck was accused of sexual assault. Affleck was accused of sexual misconduct and harassment in two settled civil suits.
