It was a night of firsts: First Korean actor to win an Oscar, oldest performer to win best actor, first woman of color to win best director.
And, for the video game industry, its first Oscar recognition for best documentary short.
The statuette was for “Colette,” a short film featured in the Oculus virtual-reality game Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, which is also the first Oscar for Facebook. (It owns Oculus, the virtual-reality group that produced the documentary short along with EA’s Respawn Entertainment.)
Oculus TV or YouTube, or on the website of The Guardian, which later acquired and distributed the film.
“We hope this award and the film’s reach means” that the memories of all of who resisted “are no longer lost,” Doran said.
