28 Mar – It was a big night for "CODA", bagging three accolades at the 94th Academy Awards including Best Picture.

However, the big winner of the night was actually Denis Villeneuve's "Dune", which brought home multiple accolades in the technical categories, from Best Sound, Best Cinematography, and Best Original Score for Hans Zimmer. It also won Best Editing, Best Score, and Best Production Design.
