CODA won Best Picture tonight at the 94th annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, becoming the first film from a streamer to win the marquee prize at the Academy Awards.
‘CODA’s Troy Kotsur An Inspiration To Deaf Stars Of Oscar-Nominated Doc ‘Audible’
The Apple Original Films drama about the hearing daughter of deaf adults who pursues a singing career also won Adapted Screenplay for Siân Heder, and its Troy Kotsur took Best Supporting Actor. It’s also the first Sundance-debuting pic to win Best Picture; Apple acquired it for a record $25 million at the festival.
Jessica Chastain took Best Actress for the title role in Searchlight’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and an emotional Will Smith won Best Actor for his role as Richard Williams in Warner Bros’ King Richard. His win came after he slapped presenter Chris Rock onstage over a remark about Jada Pinkett Smith.

Kotsur became the first deaf man to win the Supporting Actor prize — his CODA co-star Marlee Matlin won Best Actress in 1987 — and Ariana DeBose took the Supporting Actress Oscar for Disney’s West Side Story, playing the Anita character for which Rita Moreno won in 1962.
Dune led the field with six Oscars tonight — all in the crafts categories: Best Visual Effects, Cinematography, Production Design, Editing, Sound and Score (all but Cinematography and Visual Effects were presented during the preshow). Searchlight’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye scuttled a potential sweep by taking Best Makeup and Hairstyling — but Disney’s Cruella later won Best Costume Design.
CODA finshed second with its three trophies, and The Eyes of Tammy Faye was the night’s only other multiple winner.
The Power of the Dog, which came into the night with a leading 12 nominations, picked up on Campion’s Directing win. Dune was next with 10 noms.
