Mahershala Ali Made History at the Oscars Despite Controversies
Mahershala Ali gave everyone something to talk about after he won the Oscar for best supporting actor at the 91st Academy Awards. Ali played pianist Don Shirley in the road movie, Green Book. This is the second time Ali is taking home an Oscar for the same category. He walked up the stage in 2017 to pick award for his supporting role in Moonlight.
Ali is the first Muslim actor to walk the Oscars for awards and now, he is the first Muslim and black to get the best supporting actor in 2017 and 2019.
Denzel Washington is another actor who won the Oscar more than once. Ali is the people’s favorite for the role of supporting actor. The actor has been awarded accolades by the Screen Actors Guild awards, Golden Globe, Bafta, and the Oscar.
Despite the success of Green Book, it has received criticism especially due to the controversies among the producers. Ali dedicated the award to his grandma, who inspired him to work hard to achieve success in life. He thanked co-stars, Viggo Mortensen and Octavia Spencer, and his immediate family for the support. He is grateful to his wife and daughter for cheering for him and pushing him to towards his goals every single day.
