As Casey Affleck accepted the Oscar for finest actor, he paid tribute to fellow nominee Denzel Washington.
"One particular of the initially people today who taught me how to act was Denzel Washington, and I just met him tonight for the 1st time. Thank you," he stated.
This was the 1st Oscar win for Affleck.
The "Manchester by the Sea" star also thanked Kenneth Lonergan, who wrote and directed "Manchester by the Sea," as properly as Matt Damon, his brother, Ben Affleck, and his parents.
"I'm just genuinely proud to be apart of this community and I look out at all of you and I have this entire year and I am just dumbfounded that I'm incorporated. And it indicates a lot to me," he mentioned.
