Mahershala Ali is a big winner tonight.
While on stage at the Shrine Auditorium, the actor revealed what he learned from working on Moonlight.
"What I've learned from working on Moonlight is we see what happens when you persecute people. They fold into themselves," he shared with the audience. "And what I was so grateful about in having the opportunity to play Juan was playing a gentleman who saw a young man folding into himself as a result of the persecution of his community."
