Mahershala Ali is the winner of the Academy Award for best supporting actor for his Moonlight role. The actor became the first Muslim actor to win the golden statue for his role in Moonlight. Ali won for his first Oscar-nominated role, in which he plays a Miami drug dealer who mentors a young boy who is being teased and bullied.

It has been a breakout year for Ali, who starred on the Netflix series Luke Cage and also had a role in another Oscar-nominated film, Hidden Figures."

Ali paid tribute to his teachers and Moonlight director Barry Jenkins in his acceptance speech and thanked his wife, who gave birth to their daughter four days ago.

Indian origin Brit actor Dev Patel was one of Ali's co-nominees in the category. Patel was nominated for his role in Lion, based on a real life story of a lost Indian boy who is adopted by an Australian couple and eventually traced his biological mother and home back in India years later.
