What You need to know:

Apple TV+ launched in November 2019. It had launched with no library of movies and TV shows.

However, it debuted with some original series, among which CODA has emerged winner of the Best Oscar for picture.

Meanwhile, you would be wondering why the streaming service won the Oscars even after just launching in 2019.

But here is the gist.

The industry has undergone some changes that have made it possible for Apple TV+ to win.

Recall that before 2020 when Pandemic struck, film theatres like the Cannes, prohibited movies not released on big screens from competing for awards like the Palme d’Or.

This development prevented streaming services like Nstflix from participating.

However, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences changed this Oscar eligibility requirements.

The modification now temporarily allows movies release on theatres for at least seven days to qualify.

With this, movies that debuted via streaming services in the home, like Appl TV+’s CODA could join the competition for the Oscars 2022.

In September 2021, Apple TV+’s comedy, “Ted Lasso,” became a sensation.

It is a comedy about an American football coach who takes a job with an English soccer club.

It ended up receiving the Emmy Award for outstanding comedy series.

Meanwhile, predicting the best picture win, Wedbush Securities analyst, Daniel Ives, had said the win could spur more A+ talent coming to Apple.

He said it could also boost subscriptions for the services.

“If Apple was to win the coveted best picture award with CODA, it would catalyze more A+ talent coming to Apple first (or in the top bracket).”

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science honours top films under various categories.

Oscars 2022 is the 94th edition of the awards.

Actresses Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes hosted the Oscars 2022 award ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
