The all-time greatest Batman antagonist Joker finally got its own movie. The film made a lot of noise, being in a completely different genre from what we used to see these DC characters in. The great storyline along with an excellent performance by Phoenix immediately put him as an odds on favourite to win the 2020 Best Actor Award. One of the top online bookmakers Ladbrokes
is currently pricing “the newest Joker” at 1.44 (11/25)
This year’s listing looks like an Oscar All-Stars. Adam Driver (The Marriage Story) has a really decent shot at the award, considering his latest career successes. However, experts doubt the fact this his performance can dethrone the currently reigning Joker. Robert De Niro (The Irishman), Eddie Murphy (Dolemite Is My Name), and Brad Pitt (Ad Astra) are among other stars who are eyeing the award.
Is this year’s Best Actor Oscar already decided or should we expect a twist?
