Moonlight's Mahershala Ali took home best supporting actor at the Oscars on Sunday, the very first award of the night, and he even made history. We've been loving his poignant speeches all season (his speech at the SAG Awards may have made us cry), and this one is particularly special, since he and his wife welcomed a new baby just days before the big show. Ali, the first Muslim to win an Oscar, also spoke about the unfortunate best picture flub from the press room.
