I tried watching. Shakespeare might as well be in gibberish. Shakespeare needs subtitles. Maybe good project if you want to win awards, but the audience for this must be tiny.
Nah, we're not tiny. Pretty average sized actually. ?

Both well deserved — two of the best films I saw in the last year, for very different reasons. Give them a shot!

I struggled with CODA. While it was overall enjoyable, I felt they put the Deaf and hearing perspectives far too much at odds. Its a good story, but I don't feel it did much to in terms of qualifiable education regarding the community and ultimately left much to be desired. The award is essentially a woke position of self-righteous indifference.

I guess Apple TV+ can take "credit" for CODA, since they paid $25,000,000 for the rights at Sundance 2021.

It's not as though they developed and produced CODA -- they merely picked up the bragging and streaming rights.
