Or, it should go to:
Now granted, Manchester By the Sea is the first movie I've seen in a long time, and I haven't seen any other actors that are being talked about for the big prize, but man, Casey brought it in this movie. He gives an understated performance that just got to my heart. Michelle Williams does too, even though she was only in it briefly. In case you don't know, in this movie, Casey's character is named guardian of his nephew after his brother passes away and for various reasons that reveal themselves, he doesn't really want to do it. It requires as many hankies as it sounds like it might, but there were also moments that made me smile. I had a small issue with the ending, but that didn't affect my overall enjoyment of the movie. It's worth watching just for Casey's great performance.
