LOS ANGELES  – Ever since Amazon Studios’ 2016 film “Manchester by the Sea” became the first movie from a streaming service to be nominated for a best picture Oscar, competitors have spent millions of dollars campaigning for a prize that has been out of reach.
This year might be different. Apple TV+’s “CODA,” a heartwarming story about the daughter of a deaf couple who is torn between her love of music and her fear of abandoning her parents, is a leading contender on Sunday for the film industry’s most prestigious award, having claimed the top honors from the Producers Guild and Screen Actors Guild.
