The list of Ali’s competitors was quite impressive and included  Patel, Jeff Bridges for Hell or High Water and Michael Shannon for Nocturnal Animals.

Moreover, Mahershla Ali is not just Black, he’s a Black Muslim, so as a winner he may be now considered an ambassador of not only racial but also religious diversity.
