There were Emma Stone, Casey Affleck, and Viola Davis among the award winners for their acting.
In Mahershala Ali’s speech he said that I want to thank my teachers, my professors, my so many wonderful teachers. Ali played role of a Miami drug dealer who guides a young boy who is being harassed and browbeaten in the movie.
