Mahershala Ali Moves The Room With Some Truth As He Takes Home Best Supporting Actor At The 2017 SAG Awards!

SAG Awards 2017 – Male Actor Supporting Role by Videosuploaded123

Mahershala Ali may have won the Best Supporting Actor SAG Award for Moonlight, but he could also have earned it for his 2016 performances in Hidden Figures. Or Kicks. Or for this speech.

The talented rising star beat out Jeff Bridges for Hell or High Water, Hugh Grant for Florence Foster Jenkins, Lucas Hedges for Manchester By The Sea, and Dev Patel for Lion.

And he used his time to talk about persecution, and to tell the story of coming out as a Muslim to his minister mother.

His words were soft but VERY powerful. And he used them to move the room, and we hope everyone watching.

Ch-ch-check out his full speech (above)!
