Worst: Mahershala Ali gets snubbed for 'Moonlight'
This is tough, because winner Aaron Taylor-Johnson is admittedly great in Tom Ford's oddball meta-lit noir Nocturnal Animals. Yet Moonlight's Mahershala Ali was deservedly favored to win Best Supporting Actor in a Drama, and ultimately it's hard not to prefer his kind-hearted drug dealer to Taylor-Johnson's psychopathic rapist. The movie also lost out on screenplay, where its affecting, elegiac script should have given La La Land a run for its money. Given the lasting impression it left on fans and critics, Moonlight didn't get the love that it deserved last night; we take solace in the fact that Ali is going to have a long and prosperous career, and that the Oscars are right around the corner.
