Joaquin Phoenix won the award for ‘Best Actor’ for his performance as the titular character in Joker at the Oscars on Sunday night, capping a round of awards and praise for a film that was once considered controversial by the mainstream media.
It would have come as a surprise to many to imagine that Joker’s main character would be accepting an award at the Oscars, if such a prediction had been made around the film’s October release. Joker was lambasted by mainstream media elements for a supposed connection to the ‘incel’ movement and presenting the notion of disaffected men lashing out at society in a positive light.
The film proved widely popular, with some surmising that the controversy surrounding its release spread its appeal. Some figures place Joker as the highest-grossing “R” rated movie in film history.
The film was nominated for best picture, but Parasite won that award.
In his acceptance speech, Phoenix surprised some by going into detail on the topic of animal rights, the environment, and factory farming. Phoenix has criticized some of Hollywood’s practices in previous award speeches.
Phoenix’s wide-ranging acceptance speech, that avoided any direct mention of Joker itself, struck a somber tone at an event known as a hollywood party. The speech was no mere moral lecture, with the veteran actor bringing up some of his own personal problems and work-related difficulties.
“We’re at our best when we support each other. Not when we cancel each other out for past mistakes. But when we help each other to grow, when we educate each other, when we guide each other to redemption- that is the best of humanity.”
Joker was directed by filmmaker Todd Philips.
BIZARRE: Hulu Developing Alternate History Show Where Hillary Clinton Wins the Presidency
Dream on, liberals.
The streaming video service Hulu is developing a show featuring an alternative history timeline in which Hillary Clinton became President.
— Variety_TV (@Variety_TV) July 22, 2020
The show will be based on Curtis Sittenfeld’s book “Rodham,” a fiction book about Hillary never meeting Bill and then becoming President on her own merits.
Variety describes the show as “telling the story of an ambitious young woman, developing her extraordinary mind in the latter part of the 20th century, moving from idealism to cynicism and all the way back again.”
Sarah Treem, who co-created the series “The Affair,” and also worked on “In Treatment,” “House of Cards,” and “How to Make It in America,” will be writing and executive producing on the show. Executive producer Warren Littlefield, The Littlefield Company, and Fox 21 Television Studios will also be involved with the project.
Big League Politics has reported on how Hillary and her daughter, Chelsea, are setting their sights on Hollywood to keep their disgraced family’s image in the limelight:
Hillary Clinton is set to launch her own film and TV production company with her daughter Chelsea, according to reporting from Bloomberg.
The Clinton film studio will reportedly feature stories “by and about women.” It’s likely the neoliberal political dynasty would publish content with an abundance of feminist themes, as if Hollywood was failing to produce enough already.
The plan by the Clintons to enter the world of film and television could finally signal their departure from American political life. The family has been a de facto presence in national politics since the early 1990’s, although they’ve been forced into an early retirement of sorts after Hillary’s defeat in the 2016 Presidential election.
The Obama family is engaged in a similar venture, having entered into a film production contract with streaming giant Netflix. It may not be entirely coincidental for the Clintons to follow along a similar path, having a long-standing rivalry with Obama dating back to the 2008 Democratic Primary. Then-Senator Obama defeated Hillary in a contest for the Democratic nomination, running on an anti-war platform he would forget upon arriving in office.
The Clintons and Obamas have every right to add their voices to an already saturated market of culturally progressive and lecture-full film production. However, now that they’ve largely departed the national political scene, they may be surprised to find out that the American people feel no obligation to pay them any attention.
“Rodham” will be more entertainment designed to deranged liberal cat ladies who cannot accept that Donald Trump is their president.
