The red car­pet at the Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val (Tiff), which leads up to the Dolby Theatre in Los An­ge­les, is stained with dashed hopes and splat­ters of blood ’n’ sweat of ac­tors who gave their all to a role but got noth­ing in re­turn, be­cause the film car­ry­ing them just wasn’t worth it.

But Joaquin Phoenix, 44, may well have got the jury of the Academy of Mo­tion Pic­tures Arts and Sci­ences by the col­lar. It’s not go­ing be to easy for them to deny him the Os­car for Best Per­for­mance, Male, for his role in and as Joker.

Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker.
