BAFTA Film Awards winners CODA have added two more prizes to their ever-growing trophy cabinet.
In London on Sunday, Apple TV+ stated that the two victories had been verified. An “emotional performance of Joni Mitchell’s ballad “Both Sides Now,” the same song played by her character in the film,” was sung by “CODA actor Emilia Jones.”
With his triumph in the Supporting Actor category, Troy Kotsur made history as the first Deaf actor to take home the prestigious BAFTA honour. Siân Heder, a writer and filmmaker, won her first BAFTA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for her work on the film.
Apple TV+ was eager to note out in a news statement that these were far from the only honours bestowed to its popular film.
One of Apple’s most acclaimed original films, “CODA,” which has won several accolades, just took home a SAG Award for “Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture,” making it the first film with a mostly Deaf cast to do so. In addition to the Film Independent Spirit Award, four Hollywood Critics Association Awards, an NAACP Image Award, and several Academy Award nominations, including one for Best Picture, the film has lately received further accolades. A record-breaking four prizes were given to the 2021 Sundance Film Festival’s Apple Original film, including the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Cast, the Director’s Award, the Audience Award, and the Grand Jury Prize, since the film’s worldwide release, and it was also given an AFI Award.
Ruby (Emilia Jones), a 17-year-old CODA (Child of Deaf Adults), is the only hearing member of a deaf family, and she has a voice that her parents cannot hear. With her parents (Marlee Matlin and Troy Kotsur), she is an interpreter and works on the family’s failing fishing boat every day before school (Daniel Durant). However, Ruby develops a talent for singing when she joins the choir at her high school, and she becomes attracted to her duet partner Miles as a result (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo). Despite the ardent encouragement of her stern choirmaster (Eugenio Derbez), Ruby is divided between the responsibilities she feels to her family and her desire to attend a famous music school.
It’s possible to watch CODA on Apple TV+ now, but you’ll have to pay $4.99 a month for the privilege. As part of the Apple One membership, the streaming service may also be accessed.
