Mahershala Ali earned his first Oscar nod for his performance as a drug dealer named Juan, who becomes a mentor to a young gay black man in Moonlight.

Here’s an update about the winners of last night’s Academy Awards.
Who Took Home an Oscar Tonight?
Justin Timberlake opened the show with a performance of “Can’t Stop the Feeling” before Jimmy Kimmel took the stage for his Oscars debut. With an opening monologue that included both Donald Trump and Kimmel’s pseudo-rival Matt Damon, the show began with announcing the Best Supporting Actor.
Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali
This year, the Oscars presented a video montage of past winners in each category before announcing this year’s nominees and winner. Alicia Vikander, who won an Academy Award last year, presented the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. As many anticipated, Mahershala Ali picked up the statuette. Ali is the first Muslim to win an Oscar. He beat out the another popular contender, Dev Patel from Lion, as well as Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea), Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals), and Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water).
The 43-year-old shook hands with his fellow nominee, Jeff Bridges as he headed up to the stage. The first people he thanked in his acceptance speech were his teachers, and he also made a mention of his wife and their daughter, who was born just four days ago.

Tarell Alvin McCraney’s play, In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue was adapted to the big screen by Barry Jenkins. It was the predicted most-deserved winner in the category by most.
Best Director: Damien Chazelle for La La Land
Halle Barry presented in the first of the biggest award categories of the night. Damien Chazelle, the director of La La Land, won his first Oscar. At just 32 years old, he’s the youngest Oscar-winning director in the history of the Academy.
