Saw it and it was awesome.
Both Joaquin and Hildur deserve it. They did awesome work. Joaqiunโ€™s speech was great and Hildurโ€™s was sweet. Both had nice message.

Instead of thanking people he was giving a weird speech, glad he won!

It was a fitting speech for the role the film played in 2019- this is the full transcript:

[We have to] continue to use our voice for the voiceless. Iโ€™ve been thinking a lot about some of the distressing issues that we are facing collectively. I think at times we feel, or were made to feel, that we champion different causes, but for me, I see commonality. I think, whether weโ€™re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, weโ€™re talking about the fight against injustice. Weโ€™re talking about the fight against the belief that one nation, one people, one race, one gender or one species has the right to dominate, control and use and exploit another with impunity.

I think that weโ€™ve become very disconnected from the natural world, and many of us, what weโ€™re guilty of is an egocentric worldview โ€“ the belief that weโ€™re the center of the universe. We go into the natural world, and we plunder it for its resources. We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow, and when she gives birth, we steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. Then, we take her milk, thatโ€™s intended for her calf, and we put it in our coffee and our cereal, and I think we fear the idea of personal change because we think that we have to sacrifice something to give something up. But human beings, at our best, are so inventive and creative and ingenious, and I think that when we use love and compassion as our guiding principles, we can create, develop and implement systems of change that are beneficial to all sentient beings and to the environment.

Now, I have been a scoundrel in my life. Iโ€™ve been selfish. Iโ€™ve been cruel at times, hard to work with and ungrateful, but so many of you in this room have given me a second chance. And I think thatโ€™s when weโ€™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 toward redemption. That is the best of community.

When he was 17, my brother wrote this lyric. It said, โ€˜Run to the rescue with love, and peace will follow.โ€™"

Awesome news! Iโ€™ve seen like 3 or 4 of his speeches from his Joker winnings so far. One was about environmentalism, another about inclusion and this one which I feel was mainly about compassion.

Heโ€™s clearly got a lot on his mind and I could see why some people may not get his speeches but the core message is there, he just includes a lot of smaller things along the way that it can get lost for some.

Maybe some anxiety too. He talks like how I feel I talk during a public speech in front of an audience. :weary:

When he got choked up talking about his brother near the end, damn :cry:

I am glad he won. But I disliked bits of his speech. He is preaching to the masses about stuff he doesnโ€™t understand. I know guys who work with cattle here in Texas.
But let us never forget.

His weird speech proves he was best to play the joker. Not the message but the way he spoke it. Lol if you watch honest trailers take on Joker and point out the jokers interview in the film is only his third weirdest interview irl lol. So glad he won he deserved it.

I didnt know anyone hated this one. I have only seen good comments about it. I guess that could be me choosing to walk blind.

Joker was superb. Great film. Great job joaquin Phoenix really well done. Glad he got the award. It is much deserved. :clap::clap::clap::+1: his speech could be perceived as being a bit off, but his hearts in the right place you can tell. I like the whole part about redemption. And life is great when we can all unite instead of seperate despite our differences and raise each other up to be the best we all can be. And thatโ€™s all that should matter.
