East Bay native Mahershala Ali was honored as the best supporting actor Sun night at the 89th Academy Awards.

Ali, who was born in Oakland and raised in Hayward, won the Oscar for his quietly powerful performance in “Moonlight.” He played Juan, a warmhearted Miami drug dealer who takes a painfully shy young boy under his wing.

Ali took the stage to a rousing standing ovation and immediately thanked the teachers and professors who helped the person along the way.
