Mahershala Ali took home his second Oscar for best actor in a supporting role for his role in Green Book.

He dedicated the win 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 I don’t succeed, try, try again. That I can do anything I set my mind to. Always, always pushing me to think positively.”

He won best supporting actor for Moonlight in 2017. He becomes the second black actor to win multiple Oscars, after Denzel Washington.

Green Book also took home best picture as well.
