'CODA' Wins Oscar For Best Picture

Deaf family drama 'CODA' wins best picture Academy Award.

Amid silent applause from his peers, Troy Kotsur became the first deaf actor to win an Oscar since 'CODA' co-star Marlee Matlin.

Troy Kotsur of 'Coda' wins Oscar for Actor in Supporting Role, making him the second deaf actor to win an Academy Award.

After a movie year often light on crowds, the Academy Awards named an unabashed crowd-pleaser, the deaf family drama "CODA," best picture Sunday, handing Hollywood's top award. 

Sian Heder's "CODA," which first premiered at a virtual Sundance Film Festival in winter 2021, started out as an underdog but gradually emerged as the Oscars' feel-good favorite. 

It also had one very deep-pocketed backer in Apple TV+, which scored its first best picture Academy Award on Sunday, less than three years after launching the service.

But "CODA" rode a wave of goodwill driven by its cast including Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur and Daniel Durant. It's the first film with a largely deaf cast to win best picture.
