Apple TV’s CODA Makes History at Oscars 2022, Read More

The 2021 film CODA was one emotional piece that touched us all. Written and directed by Sian Heder, the film is the English-language remake of the 2014 French film La Famille Bélier. Emilia Jones stars as the eponymous CODA (child of deaf adults) alongside Eugenio Derbez, Troy Kotsur, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Daniel Durant, and Marlee Matlin in supporting roles. The Apple TV+ film has been recognized all throughout this award season, marking its most magnificent and historic win at Oscars 2022.

Live-streamed on March 28, 2022, on Disney+ Hotstar from 5 AM IST, the 94th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California saw CODA win a ton of awards. The film did not only secure a prize for Best Adapted Screenplay but, also bagged the award for Best Supporting Actor as well as Best Motion Picture- Drama. This created history in itself as the film becomes the first of its kind in several categories.

Troy Kotsur became the first deaf male performer to win an Academy Award for his role as Frank Rossi, Ruby’s father in the film. The actor took his prize and delivered an emotional and sentimental acceptance speech that had us all in tears.

The film’s win is also historic as this is the first Sundance film to win an Oscar as well as the first streaming service release to win the award. The Sian Heder film defeated two Netflix releases- The Power of the Dog as well as Don’t Look Up to secure this position. It is also the third time a woman-directed film has won the Best Picture Award at the Oscars, following Kathryn Bigelow’s win for The Hurt Locker in 2010 and Chloé Zhao’s win for Nomadland in 2021.
