Rami Malek, Regina King, and Mahershala Ali each received Academy Awards for their respective performances in Bohemian Rhapsody, If Beale Street Could Talk, and Green Book during Sunday's 2019 Oscar telecast, but their individual victories also collectively notched a milestone achievement for racial representation in Hollywood. "She has gotten me over the hump every step of the way".
Green Book, backed by Anil Ambani-owned Reliance Entertainment's Amblin Entertainment, is based on a true story of friendship and relationship between working-class Italian-American bouncer, who becomes a driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960's American South.
Oakland native Mahershala Ali has won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar award for his performance as Don Shirley in the movie "Green Book". The film focuses on Shirley's relationship with his white driver, played by Viggo Mortensen, during a 1962 road trip through the U.S. South. Shirley died in 2013. Shirley's nephew said in an interview that Ali called to personally apologize. Ali paid tribute to Dr Shirley, saying all he tried to do was to capture his essence.Читайте также: Donald Trump picks up two Razzie Awards; Holmes & Watson named worst picture
Ali began his acting career in 2001, appearing as a doctor on television series "Crossing Jordan".
This was Ali's second win in this category. He made a decision to shorten his professional name to Mahershala, according to a 2016 story in Vanity Fair, when he was told his real name was too long to fit on the poster for 2012 film "The Place Beyond the Pines".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
