Among the winners at yesterday’s 93rd Academy Awards ceremony, one award category’s recipients included the Facebook-owned tech giant Oculus and Electronic Arts’ videogame development studio Respawn Entertainment.

Colette won the Oscar for Best Documentary (Short Subject), which is believed to be the first time a project from the games industry has won an Academy Award.

Co-produced by Oculus Studios and Respawn Entertainment, and directed by Anthony Giacchino, the documentary follows Colette Marin-Catherine, one of the last surviving members of the French Resistance that took place during World War II, as she visits where her brother died in Germany.
