Mahershala Ali (‘Green Book’) becomes 83rd Best Supporting Actor winner, joining Sam Rockwell, Christoph Waltz, Christian Bale and…

Mahershala Ali added another Oscar as Best Supporting Actor to his shelf for his role as a talented concert pianist traveling through the 1960s South in “Green Book.” The victory comes just two years after his first win in the category for “Moonlight” (2016). He became the 83rd person in history to clinch that prize, beating out Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”), Sam Elliott (“A Star Is Born”), Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Sam Rockwell (“Vice”). Tour our photo gallery above of every Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actor, from the most recent winner to the very first one.

The supporting categories were added in 1936 at the ninth Academy Awards. Initially, winners were given plaques instead of gold statuettes, but starting in 1943 they were given full Oscars.

Since 1936, only eight actors have won this prize more than once. Walter Brennan holds the record for most victories with three: “Come and Get It” (1936), “Kentucky” (1938), and “The Westerner” (1940). Seven other actors have received two Best Supporting Actor trophies:

Mahershala Ali: “Moonlight” (2016) and “Green Book” (2018)

Michael Caine: “Hannah and Her Sisters” (1936) and “The Cider House Rules” (1999)

Melvyn Douglas: “Hud” (1963) and “Being There” (1979)

Anthony Quinn: “Viva Zapata!” (1952) and “Lust for Life” (1956)

Jason Robards: “All the President’s Men” (1976) and “Julia” (1977)

Peter Ustinov: “Spartacus” (1960) and “Topkapi” (1964)

Christoph Waltz: “Inglourious Basterds” (2009) and “Django Unchained” (2012)

Robards holds the rare distinction of receiving his two awards consecutively in 1976 and 1977.
