In the 86-year history of the Academy Awards®, no best picture winner has ever been made without motion picture film technology - a streak that continued with 12 Years a Slave winning the 2014 Oscar®.

 

In addition to best picture, films originating on Kodak also won Oscars® in best foreign language film (The Great Beauty) as well as best actress (Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine), best supporting actress (Lupita Nyong'o for 12 Years A Slave), and adapted screenplay (12 Years a Slave). Every Academy Award®-winning actress and supporting actress has had her winning performance captured on film.

 

Earlier in the weekend, Film Independent's Spirit Awards were dominated by 12 Years a Slave which took home awards for best feature, cinematography, directing, screenplay, and supporting actress. In the history of the Independent Spirit Awards, every best picture winner has originated on film.

 

Other films on Kodak that received Spirit Awards were Fruitvale Station (Best First Feature), Blue Jasmine (Best Actress) and Mud (Robert Altman Award).

 

"We're honored so many exceptional filmmakers selected KODAK Film to tell their award-winning stories," notes Andrew Evenski, president and general manager of Kodak's Entertainment and Commercial Films Group. "Filmmakers choose celluloid for the rich detail and bold colors which help convey emotions and visual nuances that resonate with audiences. We're proud of our long history with the motion picture industry - a relationship we look forward to continuing."
