Screenplay, Direction, etc.

Phoenix and Hildur can win their Oscars, deservedly so.
Acting and music is also the ones I would not only nominate it but also have it as a winner. The one I still totally don't get is cinematography. There were so many better films this year.

The idea of Hildur and Phoenix connecting to each other's works from afar and building on their marvelous art through that link is my favourite thing about this film.

“It took a little bit of fumbling around,” she said. “But when I found his theme, it was really like being hit by lightning. I knew that was it.”

At times, the music she wrote was played on the set, with star Phoenix responding directly to the score in some scenes. “When I saw the dailies and saw how he was connecting to the music, it was magical,” she said. “It was exactly what I envisioned when I wrote the music.”

The sound was direct and dark, with no harmonies of vibrato. “I wanted the music to be simple — flourishes just didn’t fit him at all,” she said. “His journey is linear, and it was important for the music to follow that, to get louder and stronger and harder as the movie went along.”
But at the end, when Arthur is standing on top of a car in full Joker makeup as a riot he’s inspired rages around him, she knew it was time to go even bigger. “It’s not like he’s masterminding this revolution,” she said. “The revolution just kind of happens while he’s stuck in his anger.

“It happens around him and he embraces it. And I decided it was really fun to use harmonies and macho chords there.”

I can't believe all it took for people to hate Joker was seeing Phoenix be a decent human being.
