Ben Affleck shows brotherly love to Casey

Casey's Oscar win may not have gone well with all viewers, but it did mean the world to one person in particular and that's none other than his brother Ben Affleck.

During Casey's childhood, his father was "a disaster of a drinker." Following his Parents' divorce when he was nine, Ben was the only supporter to Casey. Ben himself is the two times Oscar winner (it must run in the blood) and was remarkably happy on the win of his beloved brother Casey.
