Phoenix’s crazy, disturbing, brilliant Joker will get Oscar
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.
