"CODA" won the Best Picture Oscar at the Academy Awards 2022 beating several top contenders and becoming the first movie on a streaming service (Apple TV+) to win the coveted prize. The emotional deaf drama won all three awards it was nominated for -- best supporting actor (Troy Kotsur), best adapted screenplay and best film.

The heartwarming movie by Sian Heder tells the story of a teenager (Rubi Rossi, played by Emilia Jones) in United States' Massachusetts, who is caught between her musical ambitions and the responsibility of being an interpreter for her deaf family. The film casts deaf/non-hearing actors Marlee Matlin, Daniel Durant and Troy Kotsur as her family members.

Kotsur, who plays the father, has made history as the second deaf actor, after his co-star Matlin, to win an Oscar for acting. He is the first male deaf actor to win the coveted prize.
