Apple TV+’s CODA wins Best Picture Oscar

Apple TV+ wins the most coveted statuette thanks to “CODA”, which triumphs in the “Best Picture” category at the 94th Academy Awards.

CODA, Oscar

In the past, no film from a streaming service had ever won the Best Picture Oscar, so it’s safe to say that CODA is literally writing history for this award.

The film, highly desired by the company on Apple TV+, won competition from many other contestants: Belfast, Don’t Look Up, Drive May Car, Dune, King Richard, Licorice Pizza, Nightmare Alley, The Power of the Dog and West Side Story.

Additionally, Troy Kotsur is the first deaf actor to win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. CODA also won a third Oscar with Siân Heder for Best Non-Original Screenplay.

Remember that this film tells the story of Ruby (Emilia Jones), seventeen years old, the only hearing person in a deaf family. His life revolves around having to act as an interpreter for his parents (Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur) and working on the struggling family’s fishing boat every day before going to school.

Apple paid $25 million to acquire the rights to the film, but failed to nab exclusivity in some countries.
