    Little angels, Driver is winning the golden guy since Phoenix’s performance is worse than Ledger’s. Ledger’s will always be the best Joker.

    They cannot be compared. Heath Ledger didn’t have so many minutes on screen to configure a character so much, while Phoenix does.

    Let’s leave it in that Heath Ledger is the best supporting Joker and Phoenix the best leading Joker.

    I would love another actor to enter the race to allow a break from this inane, much repeated Driver vs Phoenix chat

    I just saw Joker. I can’t imagine a better performance this year. I don’t doubt Adam Driver is going to be great in Marriage Story, but Phoenix’s performance seems untouchable. As an acting teacher, I’d say it’s probably one of the best acting works I’ve seen this decade.

    This is true. What Phoenix does in Joker is for the books. Not only he has the transformation, unlike Zellweger he has the Oscar speech towards the end of the film. That scene with DeNiro is one of the best acting moments I’ve seen this decade from a male performance. I can’t wait to see it again.

    I personally don’t feel like Phoenix can lose this now. Joker seems pretty much critic proof now thanks to its insane hype and massive box office, and just about every audience member seems to love it, so it will get the Picture nom. Phoenix has been receiving rapturpus praise the likes of which I’ve never seen before. His performance dominates the film, unlike Driver, who has to share it with a co-lead. And he looks like the dominant frontrunner to win the drama actor globe, which has accurately predicted Actor 9/10 times this decade.

    People keep scoffing at the Joker/Bohemian Rhaposdy comparison, but I think it’s pretty apt, since bith films got mediocre reviews but were universally loved by audiences, made massive money at the box office, and received most of their praise for their lead performance. I wouldn’t even be surprised if this film won the same awards as Bo-Rap at the globes (Drama Film and Drama Actor).

    Pattinson has some more way to go to atone in the eyes of the Academy for that horrible Twilight franchise. Lighthouse is not enough.

    After seeing Joker, I’m starting to think Phoenix will be the rare male who won’t need his film to be nominated for Best Picture in order to take home Best Actor gold.

    For the one hundred and twenty-seventh time, you don’t need to be in a best picture nominee in order to win as long as you have the undeniable performance. Unless AMPAS doesn’t care for you like Close (not that she had the performance) or Rourke, you can win. Being in a best picture nominee only helps in unstable races like Rylance/Stallone.

    This isnt true. Being in the beloved Best Picture contender helps some contenders a lot. The reason: many Academy members who know nothing about acting rely on how much they loved the film to decide between one contender and the other. But when a performance as undeniable as Phoenix comes along its hard to turn your eyes away.

    I don’t get The Joker criticism about violence etc. The movie is a commentary and a harsh reality of the world we live in. The movie is about how we deserve the monsters we get. We’re in a world that isnt kind to one another, who criticizes, Bullies and ridicules people. Society creates these Monster and then they’re shock when they unleash. It’s about a broken world and broken system. It also has a political commentary of the stark contrast of the poor and the rich and the difference between living in both worlds.

    The last time an actor won Best Actor and his film was not nominated for Best Picture was Jeff Bridges in 2009 for Crazy Heart. Not saying it can’t happen again next year, but it’s something to keep in mind.

    Having seen Joker and Marriage Story back-to-back this weekend, I must say it’s a pretty close call between Phoenix and Driver..

    They both have such great material to work with, but at the end of the day, Phoenix really disappeared into his role and was so unbelievably gross and disturbing while Driver felt a tad more pedestrian with some explosive fight scenes and a great musical number like Emma Stone in La La Land.

    Ugh I really don’t know who should win or will win.. I’d say Phoenix’s overdue narrative will give him the edge but it’ll be SO close
