Brotherly love: Ben Affleck jumped out of his seat to congratulate younger brother Casey after he was named best actor winner at Sunday's Oscars

 

Casey Affleck won the Academy Award for Best Actor on Sunday night in Hollywood and it earned him a huge bear hug from his older brother and fellow Oscar winner Ben.

Casey, 41, beat out Denzel Washington, Ryan Gosling, Andrew Garfield and Viggo Mortensen to take the top prize for his performance in Manchester By The Sea.

After his name was announced, Ben, 44, jumped up from his seat and rushed to embrace his sibling.

Close: Casey reciprocated and later in his acceptance speech he gave Ben a shout out, telling him: 'I love you. You ain't heavy'

Casey appeared genuinely surprised and somewhat overcome by his win.

After taking the stage to receive his Oscar from Brie Larsen, he paused with his hand over his mouth.

‘This means so much to me. Dammit,’ he began.
