‘CODA’ – A win for America’s oldest seaport

CODA’s big wins at the 94th Academy Awards Sunday night was not only a win for the deaf community, it was also a win for the nation’s oldest seaport in its portrayal of the fishing industry and its families.

Vitale said Monday morning his phone was “going nonstop and more” after CODA’s big wins. “I’m so psyched for them to win all three Oscars last night,” Vitale said. It was a surprise, but he credited the cast and crew for making it happen. “On the boat, they worked real hard.” photos, >click to read< 10:24
