And Twitter agrees.
I agree, his performance was incredible.

Because Oscar doesn't define actors. Actors define Oscar. If he gets one, well Oscar will honor itself by doing so.

Some argued that Oscar doesn’t really mean much.
The performance is one for history books. Oscar is just another metal trophy.

Oscar isn't a standard

But then again, is Jemima’s any tweet really complete without this question?
When are you coming to Pakistan?

Earlier the film release, speculation that Phoenix might well be a contender to take the Best Actor award at the 2020 Oscars were rife.
Joker sees Phoenix star as Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who becomes a psychopathic criminal mastermind after going insane. He becomes the titular criminal who commits atrocities in Gotham City.
