From Netflix's "House of Cards" to "Marvel's Luke Cage" to Academy Awards glory, that's the near-term path for 2017's Best Supporting Actor winner. Ali has already been nominated and picked up a handful of awards for "Moonlight," including a SAG Award win and a Critics Choice Award. (It's also worth noting that Ali took home a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture for the critically acclaimed and crowd-pleasing "Hidden Figures.")
With all the recognition Ali has received this year, you'll be seeing a lot more of him in the months and years to come. For now, you can catch him in the aforementioned Netflix series and "Moonlight," and his latest movie, the Sundance entry "Roxanne Roxanne," is due in theaters this year.
If you haven't seen "Moonlight," do yourself a favor and watch it. It's streaming now and will be available on DVD February 28th.
