Medal of Honor: Video Game Industry Wins First Oscar

Medal of Honor Game News: The Video Game Industry Wins Its First Oscar, which was released on 04/26/2021 at 12:08 pm. On December 11th, Electronic Arts brought the Medal of Honor back to life with the episode Above and Beyond developed for VR. Inside, next to the title, was a short documentary called Colette, which was selected by the Academy of Arts and Sciences for Feature Films for the Oscars, which was held last night. Directed by Anthony Giacchino and commissioned by Respawn and EA, Colette tells the true story of Colette Marin-Catherine, who returns to Germany for the first time since the end of World War II to visit the forced labor camp where her brother Jean- Pierre was killed. Integrated with Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, the short film was then purchased individually from The Guardian and then selected for the ceremony. The verdict came in the middle of the night, which enabled Colette to win the Oscar for best documentary and to win a statuette as the first production in the video game industry. In a statement, Mike Doran of Oculus Studios said: The real heroine here is Colette herself, who has shared her story with integrity and strength. As seen in the film, resistance takes courage, but it can take even longer to face the past. It was a true act of courage and confidence to allow us to preserve this pilgrimage for future generations. We hope that this award and the scope of the film, as Colette says, will ensure that the memory of Jean-Pierre and all those who resisted will not be lost (…). It is true what they say: it is really an honor to be nominated. And it’s an amazing time to win. We feel honored by this recognition from the Academy of Arts and Sciences for feature films and we sincerely congratulate all our colleagues. It is a privilege to be by your side.
