The Playlist published some of the reactions of the Oscar nominees 2020.

Joaquin Phoenix, Best Actor, “Joker”:

“I feel honored and humbled to have been nominated by my fellow actors. The Academy’s encouragement helped ignite and sustain my career and I am incredibly grateful for that support. I’d like to also congratulate my fellow nominees for being recognized for their inspiring performances that have enriched our art form.”

Jeff Groth, Best Film Editing, “Joker”:

“It’s an honor to be nominated, and it’s incredible that the passion that went into making this film could be recognized in so many categories.”

Bradley Cooper, Producer, “Joker”:

“I’m so incredibly thrilled for Todd Phillips, Scott Silver, Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Lawrence Sher, Mark Bridges, Jeff Groth, Nicki Ledermann and Kay Georgiou, Alan Robert Murray, Tom Ozanich, Dean Zupancic and Tod Maitland. Thank you to the Academy for recognizing their talent and contribution. Todd Phillips is a visionary and I couldn’t be happier for him. I’m truly honored to be a part of Joker.”

Hildur Gudnadottir Original Score, “Joker”:

“I’m truly honored and proud to be recognized with an Academy Award nomination for my work on JOKER. Being invited into this illustrious group of talent and getting to take part in telling this story means the world to me. Todd Phillips is a master of his craft and it was wonderful to experience how he trusts and empowers his collaborators so they can deliver their best work possible. We see that in the way every element of the film has its space to shine, because he gives each element real weight. The brightest shining of those of course being Joaquin Phoenix´s performance, which was simply otherworldly. I’m grateful for having been invited on this journey of a lifetime with them and I congratulate all of my fellow nominees on their nominations.”

Todd Phillips, Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, “Joker”:

“Joker began as an idea, an experiment really— could we take an ‘indie approach’ to a studio film by inverting it into a character study to reflect the world around us? Explore what we’re seeing and feeling in society, from the lack of empathy to the effects of the absence of love. I am deeply honored by the overwhelming recognition of the Academy this morning, and I want to thank the genius that is Joaquin Phoenix, and all my incredible collaborators. We are beyond humbled that our peers in the filmmaking community have embraced the film and its message.”

Mark Bridges, Costume Design, “Joker”:

“ I am so very happy and honored to be nominated for Costume Design for Joker, and to have been a part of the team that created this landmark film.”

“Joker” led the way among Academy Award nominees on Monday, nabbing 11 nods, including Best Picture. Check out:

Check below an interview with Joaquin and his family on the show ’60 Minutes’, which aired today on CBS:

Phoenix’s next project, titled “C’mon C’mon,” (title not officially confirmed yet) is scheduled to film in New Orleans for two weeks starting Tuesday, Jan. 14. Written and directed for A24 by Mike Mills (“Beginners,” “20th Century Women”), it will reportedly star Phoenix as a documentary filmmaker who bonds with his smart young nephew (played by Woody Norman), whose father is bipolar. Gaby Hoffman will reportedly co-star.

According to a filing with the state film office, “C’mon C’mon” will shoot on a budget of $8.3 million. 


After Joaquin Phoenix spoke out about the importance of combating climate change at the 2020 Golden Globes — where he took home the award for best actor in a drama motion picture for his role in Joker — he marched alongside Jane Fonda to advocate for the issue again at her final climate change rally in Washington, D.C.

On Friday, Phoenix and Fonda were set to be accompanied by a handful of notables names, including Susan Sarandon, Maggie Gyllenhaal, her Grace & Frankie co-star Martin Sheen and Amber Valletta, among others. For the protest, the group of stars were also joined by an impassioned group of climate activists.

Press Room:

Joaquin’s sister Rain Phoenix used her official Instagram account to post a message from Joaquin to the Golden Globe, who recently announced that will serve a vegan dinner for the first time at the ceremony on Sunday. Check out the message:

“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that this year’s Golden Globe Awards would – for the very first time – serve an all plant-based dinner. By acknowledging animal agriculture’s role in the degradation of our planet and boldly taking measures to do its part to reduce harm, the HFPA has shown great leadership. Thank you, Mr. Soria, the brilliant chefs, and everyone working so hard to confront the environmental perils we face by supporting a plant-based 77th Golden Globes celebration.” – Joaquin
