Oscars 2022: 'CODA' is Best Picture, Will Smith Best Actor, Jessica Chastain wins Best Actress


Mar 28, 2022 09:33 am

This year's Oscars are over, celebrating the best movies and performances of 2021. Upsetting Dune and The Power of the Dog, CODA, an English language remake of French film La Famille Bélier, took home best picture. In the acting categories, Will Smith won best lead actor and Jessica Chastain won best lead actress.


Dune and The Power of the Dog didn't go home empty-handed: Dune unsurprisingly swept a ton of technical awards, including best editing, visual effects, cinematography, production design, original score and sound -- six in total. The Power of the Dog saw Jane Campion make Oscars history, becoming only the third woman to win best director.


The ceremony got off to a straightforward start, but the tail end brought some of the biggest drama in the show's history. Will Smith appeared to strike Chris Rock on stage for his joke about Smith's wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
