Oscars 2017: Will Mahershala Ali win for Moonlight in Best Actor in Supporting Role category?

One can instantly sense a similarity in character and role, played by Oscar nominated actors in a supporting role. The characters played by Mahershala Ali, Lucas Hedges and Dev Patel in their respective films are rooted in likability and sensitivity. On the other hand, Jeff Bridges and Michael Shannon play tough cops in Hell or High Water and Nocturnal Animals respectively. While Mahershala Ali is a favourite to win, Jeff Bridges can surely cause an upset. Academy Awards would want to send a message to Donald Trump (Mahershala Ali is a black Muslim) through Mahershala Ali. Here’s the list of all actors nominated for Best Actor in a Supporting Role category:

Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) The actor plays a drug dealer in the movie who somehow becomes a father figure to a little boy, growing up in a poor neighborhood of Miami.

Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water) Jeff plays a West Texas Lawman with such accuracy and precision that one rarely gets to see such performance.

Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea) The actor is a revelation in ‘Manchester by the sea’ and his portrayal of fatherless teenager in the movie is refreshing. 

Dev Patel (Lion) Despite the arresting performance form the child star Sunny Pawar, Dev Patel somehow becomes important to this gripping tale of longing and reunion.

Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals) The actor plays the role of a detective who is investigating a crime in a story-within-story in Nocturnal Animals.
