Oscars 2022 winners are...
Just another common night of nominations and winners
"CODA" by Sian Heder was named the best film (as well as the best-adapted screenplay) of the year at tonight's Oscar ceremony in Los Angeles. The Apple TV + drama, bought from the Sundance Film Festival 2021 for a record $ 25 million, became the first streaming film to win the award. It is a remake of the French film La Famille Belier, which focuses on the only hearing member of the deaf family.
The Best Director award went to Jane Campion for the queer psychodrama The Power of the Dog, the only win for the film that topped the group with the most nominations.
Kenneth Branagh won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for his semi-autobiographical drama Belfast while Drive My Car by Ryûsuke Hamaguchiwas was named Best International Feature Film. The full list of winners can be found here.
Besides the films and awards, the ceremony was also marked by the war in Ukraine, and stars including Jason Mamoa, Jamie Lee Curtis, Benedict Cumberbatch and Samuel L Jackson all wore ribbons or badges with the Ukrainian flag.
