Just when you thought the Joker hype was over, the 92nd Academy Award nominations has shined the biggest spotlight on the film with a whopping 11 nominations.
The Todd Philips-directed film bagged the noms for Best Picture, Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix, Best Directing, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, Best Score, and Best Makeup and Hair Styling.
That’s a lot of bests.
Fellow Best Picture-nominated films ‘1917‘ and ‘The Irishman‘ lead close behind with 10 nominations each.
Coincidentally, Joker also nabbed 11 nominations at the 73rd BAFTAs which were announced last week.
