In my review, I mentioned that the Joker was a game-changer for comic book movies. It definitely changed the game and broke records by becoming the #1 R-rated film of all time with over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. Before the film came out, the first wave of critics praised the film. After that, more chimed in including those who believe that the film shouldn’t exist because they feared what the film would promote. Moviegoers have answered with their wallets, and the film has been celebrated by many. Today, it was announced that the film has received 4 Golden Globe nominations, one for Best Directing, Best Actor, Best Picture, and Best Score.

With news of Joker receiving 4 Golden Globe nominations, Twitter users from all over have shown their support of the nominations for Joaquin Phoenix for Best Actor and Todd Phillip for Best Director.

Of course, I thought Phoenix’s performance was captivating so I had to put in my two cents.

Others were also excited about the Joker receiving nominations.

Of course, there are some who are against the nominations.
