The Oscars are this weekend and Manchester-by-the-Sea is a hometown favorite.
Casey Affleck is a strong favorite for Best Actor and many people from Manchester-by-the-Sea to Gloucester are rooting for him this weekend.
And while many of the scenes were shot in Manchester-by-the-Sea, some were actually filmed in Gloucester.
For example, Claudia Marie, the boat featured in the film is owned by Manchester-by-the-Sea residents but is actually docked in Gloucester.
When the film needed a dive bar for the brawl scene they went right to Pratty's.
Bar manager Nick Pratty says he's thrilled the film is up for so many Oscars.
"I hope Casey wins. I hope the director wins. He was one of the nicest people," says Pratty.
The Oscars are this Sunday. Manchester-by-the-Sea is up for six nominations.
