Features Shot On Kodak Film Dominate Awards

Argo’s best picture win topped off a successful night at the Academy Awards® for movies originating on Kodak film. In the 85-year history of the awards, no Oscar®-winning best picture has ever been made without motion picture film technology.

In addition to best picture, features shot on Kodak film also won Oscars® in all four acting categories, as well as adapted and original screenplay, among others. In all, movies produced on Kodak stock took home the gold statue in 12 of the 19 narrative feature categories (non-animated). Six of the nine best picture nominees told their memorable stories on film ( Argo, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, Django Unchained, Beasts of the Southern Wild, and Les Miserables).

"We take great pride in our rich history with the Academy Awards®, and this year is no exception,” said 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.”

Earlier in the weekend, Film Independent’s Spirit Awards also named a best picture winner, Silver Linings Playbook, that originated on Kodak film. Four of the five nominees in that category also chose Kodak emulsions ( Beasts of the Southern Wild, Keep the Lights On, Moonrise Kingdom, and Silver Linings Playbook).

Silver Linings Playbook also won in the directing, adapted screenplay, and best actress categories at the Spirit Awards, while best cinematography honors went to Ben Richardson for Beasts of the Southern Wild. Richardson’s palette was Kodak Super 16 mm film.

Evenski noted that the company is committed to providing filmmakers a range of products. “Filmmakers want creative options,” he said “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.”
