@lorddemaxus is it true that golden lion winners can't be eligible for the best actor/actress awards at Venice? that explains Phoenix not winning the volpi cup

They also suggested that if the rule hadn't existed Phoenix would have probably won best actor.

In the space of 7 months we've seen a comic-book movie get nominated for Best Picture and a comic-book movie win the Golden Lion at Venice.

What a world.

No need to look back, the same film could do both this year!

After the awards ceremony, jury member Mary Harron said, “They took a comic book mythology that has been done in so many ways and overturned it and revitalized it for now” with compassion. Harron was also very impressed with “the magnificent performance” of Phoenix. She added that the rules here prevented giving Joker both the Golden Lion, and the acting prize. 

Phoenix, who won a Volpi Cup Best Actor prize in 2012 for The Master, briefly stepped up on stage tonight with Phillips who thanked the “wild and eclectic group or jurors” and noted there were “so many directors on the panel.” He also gave a nod to Warner Bros and DC for “getting out of their comfort zone and taking a big swing” on Joker. There is no movie, he said, “without Joaquin.”

Congrats to Joker! Since some people want to bring it down, this is a wonderful vindication. :bravo:

 

I hope it at least gets BP nom if not win (would be amazing since SH genre is making Hollywood so much money) and definitely a win for Phoenix.

The real reason why Joker won is because Lucrecia Martel hates Marvel (she was the first director attached to Black Widow and then quit).

she was never attached to it i think she had one conversation with them about it. they talk to a lot of directors before they hire someone.

Yeah, I should've realised earlier on that Harron being part of the jury committee probably helped. She loves fucked up people.

I wish we could look at films with a bit more nuance than “THIS FILM IS SJW PROPAGANDA” or “THIS FILM IS FOR ALT-RIGHT LOSERS!” Unfortunately, there’s no room for any of that in today’s political environment. I guess it doesn’t help that some people still mistakenly believe that the Aurora shooter was inspired by the Joker, even though that was just a myth that’s already been debunked.

Martel wouldn't agree to do Black Widow cause she wanted to direct her own action scenes so she rules and marvel drools tbh.

If Joker, Jojo Rabbit and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood all become Best Picture contenders, then we're gonna see shitty hot-takes the likes of which have never been seen before

Who would have thought this would be happening just 3 years after the best comic book movie of all time was slammed for daring to be ambitious? Z.S. always ahead of time yet people will never recognize how he paved the way for Joker to be made.
