Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment celebrate a historic victory with an Oscar-winning feature documentary. The studios produced the Best Short Film award "Colette".
The film was released alongside Medal of Honor, a VR shooter about a girl named Colette. The girl tries to save her brother, who was trapped in one of the German camps during the Second World War.
The film's director spoke at the award ceremony and thanked the members of the Electronic Arts team and Respawn Entertainment. The film is now openly available on The Guardian.
As a reminder, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond was released late last year. The game is dedicated to the struggle of European states and the United States against the Nazis on the fields of World War II. Overall, the game received good reviews, although some critics pointed out that the game was "too easy."
Interestingly, the victory of the Medal of Honor has become not so rare for the entire gaming industry, if we talk about other prestigious awards in various fields of the arts (Grammy, Emmy, Oscar and Tony). The industry has won several Emmy awards over the years, with composer Christopher Tin winning a Grammy for a song from Sid Meier's Civilization IV in 2011. It turns out that at the moment only "Tony" is missing, which is awarded to the best musicals and theatrical productions - in any case, we hope to see something similar soon.
