Joaquin Phoenix has won an Oscar award for his performance as the title character in Todd Phillips’ 2019 psychological thriller film “Joker.”
Many had wondered whether Phoenix would be snubbed at the Academy Awards due to the controversial nature of the film, and the pushback it received from elitist film critics and angry white women on Twitter.
