Now, four DC Comics films have received Oscars gratitude to Todd Phillips’ Joker film. Interestingly, every one of those films also featured Joker.
Joker Is An Oscar winner
Now, Joker film is an Oscar winner, and it’s also now the fourth live-action DC film to receive an Oscar and the fourth one to have the Joker in it.
Todd Phillip’s Joker’s journey to the Oscars was an exciting one. Its position amid the films delivering within the DC Extended Universe was suspicious at first (since it’s totally separate from that franchise). Then later it produced a discussion that occurred in increased security at cinema upon its release.
Despite Joker getting such isolated reviews, in the end, it became much more prosperous than people believed it would.
On an estimated budget of $55 million, Joker earned over $1 billion global, thus enhancing not only the highest-earned R-rated film of all time but also the first R-rated film to cross that door.
On the peak of that, Joker was chosen for 11 Oscars, in addition to being picked (and getting) at many other awards functions. However that did not bind for the 14-naming record, it was the leading movie of the year at the function.
Now, at the 92nd Academy Awards, Joker has received an Oscar for Best Original Score (by writer Hildur Guðnadóttir) and Best Actor (for Joaquin Phoenix). Thus making it the fourth DC film ever to get an Oscar in a contentious category.
Now, Joker is the fourth DC film to receive an Oscar; Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight (Best Sound Editing, the other three being Tim Burton’s Batman (Best Art Direction) and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad (Best Makeup and Hairstyling).
The Interesting Thing About All These Films
The exciting thing about all these films, apart from the fact that they are all DC films, is that they all had the Joker in them.
When Nicholson and Leto’s acts did not give to their films’ Oscar earnings, it’s still exciting that the only films to get at the functions all had the same antagonist in them.
Merely seven superhero films have received at the Oscars at the moment. Despite the four movies, the other three are Spider-Man 2 for Best Visual Effects, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse for Best Animated Film, and Black Panther for Best Costume Design, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design.
