Mahershala Ali has become the first Muslim actor to win multiple Oscars. He achieved the landmark after winning an Oscar for his flawless performance in Green Book. He won his first Oscar in 2017 for the best supporting role, which he played in Moonlight. He also became the second Afro-American after Denzel Washington to win multiple Oscars. He dedicated his award to his grandmother. “I want to dedicate this to my grandmother, who has been in my ear my entire life. Telling me that if I first don’t succeed try, try again. That I can do anything I set my mind to. Always, always pushing me to think positively.” He said, adding, “I know that I would not be here without her, that she’s gotten me over the jump in a lot of ways.”
