″CODA″ and ″Dune″ defeated ″The Power of Dog″

Apple TV + movie about a deaf-mute family wins the Best Picture Oscar.

There have been some indications in the past few hours that this could happen, and the first statues distributed during the night immediately indicate this. This wasn’t the year for “Power of the Dog”, the New Zealand West who, in 12 nominations, won the most anticipated and most-anticipated for Jane Campion.

Conversely, not only did Canadian Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” win, almost everything in the so-called technical categories (sound, visual effects, production design, photography, editing and music), in a total of six statuettes, such as the Academy Award Coda won Best Picture, Lives Up, Best Film of the Year, and is also the winner in the Adapted Screenplay and Supporting Actor categories.

The film, distributed by Apple TV +, won Netflix, the producer and global distributor of “O Poder do Cão”, explaining that streaming platforms exist and that in some cases, unfortunately, we have to watch it on the small screen at home .. what is still called cinema. “CODA” (which stands for Daughter of Deaf Adults) focuses on the life of a teenage girl who faces the dilemma of continuing to support her deaf-mute parents, or pursuing the life of her dreams, in this case characterized by a passion for music.

The big moment of the night—and whether or not it was staged—was Will Smith’s reaction to presenter Chris Rock’s balding joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. The actor rose from his seat, took the stage, slapped Chris Rock, returned to his seat and said the forbidden “F-word” out loud twice. Definitely a moment that will go down in the history of the Oscars and American television itself.

Will Smith, minutes later, took home an Oscar for Best Actor, for his portrayal of the father of two sisters, Serena and Venus Williams, in “King Richard: Beyond the Game,” apologizing to the Academy and giving a touching speech, a face full of tears in defense of family values, the divine message that It could have been entrusted to him.

Jessica Chastain’s Best Actress Oscar acceptance speech was more earthy and sensible, but no less committed, as she championed the rights of the LGBTI community. The actress is best known for her portrayal of “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” which is about the rise and fall of legendary TV artist Tammy Faye Packer, which required her to do several hours of makeup a day for a stunning physical transformation.

As usual, the musical moments were animated at night, which began with Beyoncé’s interpretation of the song “Be Alive”, still out of place and continued into the night, already on stage, for example with the winner “No Time to Die”, from the James Bond movie. The namesake—which evokes 60 years of the series in a hint montage—sung by Billie Eilish, accompanied by her brother, Phineas I “Connell.”

The three presenters, Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes, were always up to the task, with well-orchestrated humor and a few ephemera that allowed to be on stage from the living legends of American cinema: Francis Ford Coppola, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, over the course of 50 Years from “The Godfather” Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes, Rosie Perez in White Can’t Measure for 30 years, and Samuel L.” The very vulnerable Lisa Minnelli, along with Lady Gaga, delivered the main night’s Oscar, at a time when Also celebrating the 60th anniversary of “Cabaret – Goodbye Berlin”.

With the Oscars, international animation and films going to the long-awaited films, respectively Disney’s “Magic” and Ryosuke Hamaguchi’s Japanese film “Drive My Car”, the Oscars did not forget Ukraine. Without mentioning the fact, Ukraine-born Mila Kunis was one of the presenters of the night, Coppola briefly mentioned the conflict and the Academy, which did not authorize Zelensky’s request for a live intervention, observed a minute’s silence for the victims of the conflict.
