On Sunday night, Apple TV+ became the first streaming service to win Best Picture at the Oscars.
“As a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults) Ruby is the only hearing person in her deaf family. When the family’s fishing business is threatened, Ruby finds herself torn between pursuing her passion at Berklee College of Music and her fear of abandoning her parents.”
Apple TV+ is the first streaming platform winning an Oscar
To win the prestigious award, which was handed out at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Apple had to compete with Netflix’s The Power of the Dog and others.
Apple CEO Tim Cook celebrated the victory on Twitter, calling CODA “a profoundly beautiful movie.”
Team CODA created a profoundly beautiful movie, a story of hope and heart that celebrates our differences. Congratulations to the producers, @SianHeder, @TroyKotsur, @MarleeMatlin, @EmiliaJonesy, @DanielNDurant, @EugenioDerbez, and all involved in these historic wins! #CODAfilm pic.twitter.com/s9ebnPaYl1

In addition, CODA was recognized with the Best Supporting Actor prize, which went to Troy Kotsur and made him the first deaf male actor to earn an Oscar.
CODA is directed by Sian Heder and the movie features Emilia Jones, Marlee Martin, Daniel Durant, and Kotsur who also won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
In August 2021, Apple’s Academy Award-winning film became available for streaming on Apple TV+ for the first time. The service costs $4.99 a month and may be canceled at any time. You may also watch CODA for free using the seven-day trial period, which starts immediately after purchase.
Sunday’s Oscar win for CODA is a major boost for Apple’s video streaming service, which debuted in 2019 to compete with rivals such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+, Hulu and so on.
