Actor Mahershala Ali tells TODAY in a phone interview that nabbing his first Oscar nomination, for Best Supporting Actor in “Moonlight,” hasn’t hit him yet: “Maybe in a couple of days.” He adds: “We did this movie with nothing, with little to no money, we just showed up, and we were there for the right reasons.”
