It’s been a tough road for Mahershala Ali this awards season — but he’s still been pulling out the wins. Case in point, taking home The Actor statuette at the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
On one hand, Ali is being lauded for his performance as Don Shirley in “Green Book”. But, on the other, the film has been viciously criticized for falsifying the real relationship between Don and his white driver, Frank “Tony Lip” Vallelonga, played by Viggo Mortensen. Shirley’s family has been very vocal about the films faults, to the point that Mahershala called the directly to apologize. However, the discourse over the film and its missteps has continued on.
HH spoke to Ali just moments before he won the Best Supporting Actor trophy and he was pretty frank about how the controversy has affected him thus far, but more so, how he’s gotten over it.
So do you think the criticism takes away from Mahershala’s monumental win?
