It may amuse you to find out that there are Oscars given for code. In addition to the widely broadcast main Oscars ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences also has a second (not broadcast) event every year where they give Academy Awards for scientific and technical achievements that have a lasting impact on how movies are made, and most of them these days are for software (but also hardware and things like new important new camera or projection technologies). There are multiple levels of award, depending on how foundational the invention is, and the highest level even receives the gold Oscar statuette. https://www.oscars.org/sci-tech
