Joaquin Phoenix Wins ‘Best Actor’ Award at Oscars for “Joker” Performance

Joker has been widely lauded and discussed.

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.

‘Ghostbusters’ Director Blames Hillary Clinton’s Unpopularity for Failure of All-Female Franchise Reboot

Maybe your movie just stunk, dude.

Nearly four years later, the all-female reboot of ‘Ghostbusters’ is now remembered as one of the worst atrocities in the history of cinema, and director Paul Feig is blaming anti-Hillary Clinton backlash for its failure.

“I think some really brilliant author … needs to write a book about 2016 and how intertwined we were with Hillary [Clinton] and the anti-Hillary movement,” Feig said while appearing on SiriusXM radio last week.

“Everyone was at a boiling point. I don’t know if it was having an African American president for eight years that teed them up, they were just ready to explode,” he added.

Feig is desperate to make excuses for his movie’s failure, rather than take personal responsibility for creating one of the worst movies in film history.

“It’s crazy how people got nuts about women trying to be in power or be in positions they weren’t normally in,” Feig said. “It was an ugly, ugly year.”

The fake news media has been pushing the line that sexism doomed the movie since its historic failure at the box office during its summer 2016 release. However, ‘Ghostbusters’ creator Ivan Reitman believes that it was nostalgia that caused the backlash, not sexism. Viewers did not want to watch a ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot that was seemingly blasphemous to the original.

“I think there’s way too much talk about gender [when it comes to this film],” Reitman said during an interview with Mashable. “I think that many of the people who were complaining were actually lovers of the [original] movie, not haters of women.”

Feig refuses to admit that his creation was so horrendous and even hopes to release a grueling 3.5 hour directors’ cut of the flick despite the fact that nobody wants to see it.

Because the movie was such a massive bomb, the cast has been scrapped and replaced with a new cast for the upcoming re-boot “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.” The initial trailer was released last year to rave reviews.

It can be seen here:

Actress Leslie Jones, who starred in the failed all-female reboot, whined about the new movie that is set for theaters in 2021 for completely sweeping her movie under the rug. Similar to her director, she blamed Trump because everyone hated her awful movie.

Feig and Jones, in true liberal fashion, have refused to own up to their own failures. They will continue to create scapegoats instead of admitting the obvious about their horrendous movie that failed spectacularly in its feminist agenda of female empowerment.
