by John Smith Freelancer

2019’s Joker is the fourth Oscar-winning movie of DC comics, and it has been one of the biggest hits of the live-action adaptation of DC comics. Do you know that all four films of DC comic that have won Oscar have Joker character in them? Yes, it is indeed true that Joker is the only character who has appeared in all DC Oscar-nominated movies.

Considering the fact that 2019’s Joker received mixed reviews from the audience, it still became one of the most grossed movies than what people were expecting. It surpassed people’s estimation of the movie’s box office collection when it crossed the 1 billion dollars worldwide collection in the total budget of 55 million dollars.

It is also now the highest-earning r-rated film of all time, and it is also the first movie that crossed 1 billion dollars collection even after getting the R rating. Moreover, the movie also got nominated for a total of 11 Oscar awards, which is an insane achievement for DC movies. The film also got numerous other awards for multiple new achievements in the filming industry in the various awards programs.  

Now the movie received an Oscar for the Best original score from the composer Hildur Guðnadóttir. It also nominated for the Best Actor Oscar in the 92th Academy Awards for the actor Joaquin Phoenix. It is now the fourth DC comic’s live-action adaptation that earned an Oscar. The suspiring thing is that all four Oscar-winning movies have Joker in them.  

The other three Oscar-winning movies of DC Comics are 1989’s Batman (Oscar for Best Art Direction), 2008’s The Dark Knight (Oscar For Best Supporting Actor and Best Sound Editing), as well as 2016’s Suicide Squad (Oscar For Best Makeup & Hairstyling). You can watch all of these Oscar-winning DC movies, and you will see Joker in all of the movies.

Various actors in these movies portray DC’s Joker character- 1989’s Batman has Jack Nicholson, 2008’s The Dark Knight has Heath Ledger (The most beloved Joker), 2016’s Suicide Squad has David Ayer, and now 2019’s Joker has Joaquin Phoenix. The Joker stars Heath Ledger, and Nicholson didn’t add anything to their movies that made the movie Oscar winner, but the movie still won the Oscar, and all of the DC movies that won Oscar have the character in them no matter he had a major role or not. He is portrayed as a villain in these films, and this fact is now getting popularity over social media.

1978’s Superman did also won an Oscar for best visual effects in 1979, but this fact has nothing to do with it since the project was a non-competitive genre at the time. At present, we only have seven total superhero movies that won Oscar, and one of these projects includes the Marvel Cinematic Universe Black Panther for best original score, best costume design, and best production design. Other Oscar-nominated superhero movies are Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse for a Best animated film and Spider-Man 2 for best visual effects. Let’s see what are the upcoming films of DC that will feature Joker and would also win an Oscar.
