The 94th Academy Awards on Sunday celebrated the significant and outstanding accomplishments in film from the past year, including Dune, Power of the Dog, Westside Story, and other movies. Several nominated films arrived courtesy of streaming services, such as Best Picture nominee CODA.
The movie presents the story of a child of deaf adults (CODA), as a young woman navigates a life of helping her family versus potentially pursuing her dreams.
During the early part of the Oscars, host Amy Schumer showed some love for the film in a heartwarming moment that fans were talking about online ahead of it receiving further recognition for one of its stars.

This year’s Oscars featured three hosts working together as Amy Schumer teamed up with Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall. The trio was introduced by DJ Khaled on stage following Beyonce’s show-opening performance, with each of the women delivering some hard-hitting jokes.
They included everything from humorous bits about what COVID-19 did to Timothee Chalamet to saying the Oscars went with three women as hosts this year because it’s cheaper than hiring a man to host.
A bit later on, Schumer appeared on stage by herself to deliver a monologue poking fun at almost all of the nominated films, saying she hadn’t watched any of them because she was busy watching Encanto numerous times with her child.
