CODA wins best picture at Oscar 2022, creates history for deaf community

Los Angeles: For the first time in the history of Oscars, a film about deaf community has won the Best Picture award. CODA, written and directed by Sian Heder, has been named best picture beating the likes of Belfast, Drive My Car and Power of the Dog at the 2022 Academy Awards. It’s a historic win for a film that brings deaf culture, and deaf actors, to the forefront.

Troy Kotsur also made history as the first deaf man to win an Academy Award for acting in CODA. His win comes 35 years after his CODA co-star Marlee Matlin became the first deaf actor ever to win an Oscar, for her leading role in Children of a Lesser God, reported Variety.
