Best.Week.Ever!  New dad Mahershala Ali just won his very first Academy Award. 

First a newborn baby, now a baby in gold form.  Mahershala Ali just won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the critically acclaimed independent film Moonlight. He is officially the first Muslim actor to win an Academy Award.

In bonafide actor form, the 43-year-old thanked his teachers, his manager and his co-stars.

"I want to thank my teachers...they taught me it's not about me, it's about the characters.  The characters I'm in service to."

And, of course, he thanked his wife with a mention of their very first child.

"I want to thank my wife, who was in her third trimester this Award season.  We just had a daughter [Bari Najma Ali] 4 days ago."

Congrats Mahershala on this beyond deserving award!
