Academy Award Winner Angry His Award Doesn’t Function As An Amiibo

Mahershala Ali Is The First Muslim Actor To Win Award And First To Assume It Was An Amiibo

The 89th Academy Awards after party turned awkward when Mahershala Ali attempted to use his gold statue as an Amiibo.

Reportedly, Ali was seen saying “Let’s see what special mushroom this will give me,” as he placed the statue on the NFC reader of a Nintendo WiiU that was setup at the party with Super Mario Maker.  When the game failed to recognize Mahershala assumed it was broken, but party goers quickly corrected the actor.
