Mahershala Ali can now call himself a TWO-TIME Academy Award winner.  His sweet celebration with his wife and salute to his grandmother inside.

Mahershala Ali just won his second Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, this time for his role portraying real-life pianist Dr. Don Shirley in Green Book.  He is quite possibly the first black man to ever win two Oscars in this category after also winning in 2017 for Moonlight.

He also had heartfelt words for his grandmother:

“I want to dedicate this to my grandmother, who has been in my ear my entire life, telling me that if at first I don’t succeed, try, try again....I could do anything I put my mind to, and always, always pushing me to think positively. I know that I would not be here, that she has gotten me over the hump every step of the way.”

Awww!

Green Book also won for Best Original Screenplay.  By the way, the season finale of "True Detective" - the Oakland native has led the show in this 3rd season - airs tonight on HBO.

Congrats Mahershala!
