- 2 Time Oscar Nominee: Robert Downey Jr.
- 3 Time Oscar Nominee: Joaquin Phoenix
Well, who do you think will take it? Do you think they are both in with a shout? Is topping off so many films enough for Downey Jr. or is the performance enough for Phoenix?
Kinda feel the need to see the Joker to make a decision myself.
Obviously Joker just made a big impact taking Venice... but..
there again, a quick google shows the Avengers: Endgame Directors (the Russo Brothers) talk up Robert Downey Jr.
|“I don’t know if I have ever seen—in movie history—a global audience react to a performance the way they did to Robert Downey in that movie,” Joe Russo added. “There were people bawling in movie theaters, hyperventilating. I mean, that is a profound performance, when you can touch audiences all over the world to that degree. We’ve never seen anything like that, and if that doesn’t deserve an Oscar, I don’t know what does.”|
Here's the stuff I mentioned at the start above:
News that Joker just landed the Venice film festival:
Well I don’t think anyone expected this. Joker just won the top prize at the immensely prestigious Venice Film Festival. The Joker himself would relish such a grenade being thrown into the film Twitter discourse (especially since a new Roman Polanski film was the runner-up ).
(of course, if you prefer another source who has made a single video discussing the chances of both, please do add it below)
