CODA win best picture prize Oscars 2022

“CODA”, the heartwarming movie about a deaf family with a hearing daughter, has won the prestigious best picture prize at the Oscar

Sunday’s win for CODA marked the first time a streaming service took home the film industry’s biggest prize

“CODA” was released by Apple TV+, which beat Netflix Inc’s contender “The Power of the Dog” and other entries from traditional Hollywood studios.

Philippe Rousselet, Fabrice Gianfermi and Patrick Wachsberger win the Oscar for Best Picture for 'CODA' at the 94th Academy Awards in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California

Earlier, a 94th Academy Awards that steadily maintained a buoyant spirit was rocked when best actor winner Will Smith slapped presenter Chris Rock onstage over a joke about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Rock referenced the 1997 movie “G I Jane,” in which actress Demi Moore shaved her head

Smith slapped Rock in what at first appeared to be a scripted joke. But the theatre turned sombre moments later when Smith, back in his seat, shouted back, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth”.

“Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father,” he said, “just like they said about Richard Williams.”
