'CODA' movie brings home the Oscar for best picture, a historic win for the Deaf community 

CODA has been named best picture, beating out 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. 

Written and directed by Sian Heder, CODA is based on the 2014 French film La Famille Bélier.  

"CODA does have a double meaning in the title because it's Children of Deaf Adults, but it's also the end of a piece of music,'' 

Director Sian Heder told NPR's Here and Now. "It's a story about the end of childhood." 

Distributed by Apple TV+, it is also the first best picture win for a streaming service 

The film earned three of Apple TV+'s six Oscar nominations and won each one 

While Oscar voters have been hesitant to accept streaming services into the fold
