    Yes, please don’t be sleeping on Heath Ledger’s Joker.

    Heath Legder swept though like Monique style. He had no competition. Joaquin has competition from Adam Driver and he’s in a much more divisive film.

    The fact that Heath would have presented Mo’nique with her Oscar.. my heart hurts, we were robbed of a moment.

    Ledger’s take was just as examined. Sure, that Joker was mysterious and completely evil (as most iterations are), but he still had a lot of depth. Pay attention and you’ll notice a lot brilliant, subtle touches that add to the character.

    I agree with this! But I think Joaquin did something truly transcendent with the role. He gave reason for the ticks and whatnot–they arose from Arthur’s hurt and anxieties.

    Ledger gave a performance for the ages that Phoenix couldn’t even touch and that’s on period.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    This does seem like the trendy opinion to have.

    Well, it’s not my fault that sitting on the movie longer has undermined Phoenix’s performance for me. Blame that awful script. Ledger didn’t have that problem and he gave a top 5 performance of all time for me, so it was going to be tough for Phoenix to beat him regardless.

    Also, Ledger vs Phoenix comes off as apples and oranges. They have completely different functions in the films in which they appear, I do agree with what I think John said before that Joaquin is playing Arthur Fleck and Ledger the Joker. I do prefer Ledger, but it’s not a fair comparison as they’re playing nearly polar opposite iterations of a popular character with a somewhat infinite mythos. I mean, Ledger is a supporting character and a foil to Batman, can he be expected to bring out dimensions of his character that are impossible to express through the limitations of the script?

    I thought Phoenix was brilliant on a first watch, but on my second viewing I found his performance to be painfully overacted.

    I guess I’ll be sticking to the one viewing then lol (not that I planned on watching it anytime soon anyways).

    Thank you for veering away from the Phoenix/Driver debate.

    ETA: Just where is all the Joaquin is winning stuff coming from? Some lunatic stanning on Twitter?

    I respect ALL of you as individuals but this stanning is irritating to no end. I would have simply been happy for Joaquin should he win, but now I am actively rooting for him because of all of these egg head justifications for why he isn’t. The funniest one is the poster who suspects he’s not even going to get a nomination. Lol.

    Please Correct Me Here,If I’m Wrong.

    DiCaprio isn’t campaigning big or hard for OUATIH.

    Back when Revenant came in 2015,I used to be regular at Imdb message boards and there it was famous that he rarely or never campaigns.

    Is it right?

    I’m afraid to try to provide an answer or signs of evidence Hammad….lol

    I remember he campaigned during the Aviator run, but that’s it.
    It could be a moot point since everyone knows who he is and what he can do.
