a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Casey Affleck won yet another Best Actor Award for “Manchester by the Sea” at the Independent Spirit Awards this afternoon.

This was Affleck at his most relaxed and personable. Funny, even. He joked about this show’s hosts joking about how his character in “Manchester by the Sea” was “living in his big brother’s shadow.” And that he was “sad and morose.” “I’m not sad and morose. I’m very happy to get this award.” And said, “Thank you, guys” over and over, like  this particular audience really meant something to him. He said, “I’ve been making independent films for over ten years. I’ve only been making independent films.” The crowd roared.

Good luck, tonight at the Oscars, Casey! You’ve won enough awards, over forty this year, to last a lifetime.

Isabelle Huppert won Best Actress for “Elle.” And Ben Foster who has been on my TV show several times won Best Supporting Actor for “Hell or High Water.” Molly Shannon won Best Supporting Actress for “Some People.” And “Moonlight” was awarded a Best Ensemble performance, so the whole cast was awarded  as one. “Moonlight” led the awards totals with six, including Best Picture and Best Director.
