This year’s Oscar show features an ASL interpretation for the first time

This year’s live Oscars broadcast will feature American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters for the first time.

The 94th Annual Awards stream, available on the Academy’s YouTube channel, will feature a team of deaf interpreters to provide an “enhanced experience” to those in need.

It comes after the success of Best Picture nominee Coda, which follows the family of Ruby Rossi, a child of deaf adults.

The film and its cast of mostly deaf actors have already picked up multiple accolades during the 2022 awards season, including three Sunday Oscar nominations.

Troy Kotsur, who plays Ruby’s father Frank Rossi, has won Best Supporting Actor awards from the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), Critics Choice Awards (CCA) and Baftas.

An ASL feed will also reportedly be accessible to viewers watching on the Academy website.

Jeanell English, VP, Impact and Operations, told The Hollywood Reporter that “diversity and representation was a priority” at this year’s show.

“We’re proud of what we’ve done, but it’s far from enough and we’re committed to continuing to do as much as we can along this path,” she said.
