Video Game Company Gets An Oscar For The First Time

April 27, 2021

For its in-game film Colette, Respawn Entertainment and Oculus have staked a claim for the Academy Award for Best Short Subject Documentary at the 2021 Oscars.
Colette is a 25-minute documentary, made by Anthony Giacchino and Alice Doyard, and co-produced by Respawn and Oculus. It appears in Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, a VR game released last year.
The documentary tells the story of Colette Marin-Catherine, a French Resistance fighter, and it follows her return to Germany for the first time since World War 2.
Colette is the first Academy Award win for a video game company.
Respawn has been busy with other projects; the studio recently announced the first details on Apex Legends Mobile, revealing that a beta will launch in India later this year.
Vince Zampella also confirmed last week that Respawn is working on a brand new IP.
