Gary - who won the award for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour - namechecked his 99-year-old mum onstage as he accepted the Oscar. Gary Oldman is similar to Casey Affleck in that regard, who won the best actor award past year for Manchester by the sea, even while he had been accused to sexual harassment earlier this decade.
