"It has been a true joy to witness the positive impact on humanity that this story and its performances have had worldwide. We send our warmest congratulations to Siân; Troy; the cast; the creative team; producers Patrick, Philippe, and Fabrice; and everyone who helped bring inclusion and accessibility to the forefront through this remarkable film." said Jamie Erlicht, Apple's head of Worldwide Video.

The movie tells about a teenage girl called Ruby. She is the only hearing person in her family who is trying to find a balance between school, passion, and helping as an interpreter in the family's fishing business.

Coda debuted at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. It was bought next by Apple for $25 million and released in cinemas and on its streaming platform last summer. The film will hit movie theaters again this Friday, where it will be available with open captions.

Apple's CODA just made a new chapter became the first film with a mainly deaf cast to win Best Picture, and that's not the only Oscar the movie received during the 94th Annual Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Troy Kotsur got a statuette for Best Supporting Actor and Siân Heder for Best Adapted Screenplay. It is also worth mentioning that a streaming service was honored with the most prestigious award for the first time in Oscar's history.
