The Oscars® in all four acting categories this year were given to actors whose performances were captured on Kodak motion picture film. And an overwhelming majority (16 of 20) of the nominated actors were in movies shot on motion picture film technology. Well done Daniel, Jennifer, Anne and Christoph!

"We take great pride in our rich history with the Academy Awards®, and this year is no exception,” says Andrew Evenski, president and general manager of Kodak’s Entertainment and Commercial Films Group. “You can listen to all the hype, but the truth is that motion picture film continues to be the gold standard, and last night was certainly proof of that. Filmmakers want creative options. We are as committed as ever to providing them with a choice for telling stories. We are currently making billions of feet of film and, who knows, maybe next year’s best winner is already being shot on Kodak film.”
