Casey Affleck will be one of the big absentees at the upcoming Academy Awards, to be held on March 4th.

The representative of the actor, who has yet received the statuette so coveted last year , confirmed it in the day of 25 January.

Traditionally, the personality who received the best actor award the year before comes to award the best actress award the following year. This will not be the case for the next edition of the Oscars since Casey Affleck is singled out in a case of sexual harassment. The alleged facts date back to 2010. A lawsuit was even launched before a friendly settlement was found.

The actor has never spoken publicly about this case since the agreement contains a confidentiality clause.

The organization of the Oscars was pleased with this decision and this absence, highlighting that it allowed to keep the focus on the films, the artists and the technicians in competition.

The repercussions of the all-out revelations in Hollywood have not finished being felt!
