Troy Kotsur made history at the 2022 Oscars, becoming the first deaf actor to win an Oscar in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role in “The Rhythm of the Heart.” His partner in the film, Marlee Matlin, won an Oscar for best actress in 1987 for her role in Children of Silence.

Kotsur used sign language to receive his award: “It’s amazing to be here on this journey, I can’t believe I’m here. … I really want to thank all the wonderful theater stages for the deaf where I was able to develop my craft as an actor,” he said.

“My dad, he was the best signer in our family, but he was in a car accident and was paralyzed from the neck down and couldn’t use sign language anymore… you are my hero,” he added.

Kotsur also said his Oscar was “dedicated” to the deaf community.

The actor also won a Golden Globe and a SAG award this year for his role in the film.
