Joaquin Phoenix: And finally the Oscar arrived
They say that by much rebel attitude I have, I wanted this Oscar with all his strength. It is what has been at the doors several times (for Gladiator, Walk the line Y The master) and be aware that you have possibly played the role of your life in Joker. The film, based on the great villain of DC comics, has offered us a very different look to the conception that until now we had of the character thanks to the creativity of Todd Phillips and a Joaquin in absolute state of grace.
And it has nothing to do with what we have seen in Joker with what many imagined when we learned that a movie with this character would be created as the protagonist. Philips has been able to tell a parallel and real story, away from all the science fiction of the genre, in which the man of uncontrollable laughter is a mentally ill beaten by a sadly stratified society. It goes without saying that such a story would not have worked the same if it had not been for Joaquin – did you know that Leonardo DiCaprio was also tempted to give life to the villain? -, who has managed to offer us one of the best interpretations of joker We have ever seen in history.
And such work received his top prize at the Oscars this past weekend. He was more than sung that the actor would take (finally) a statuette, thanks to an interpretation that has managed to convince everyone unanimously and thus assuming the final climax to a year of joker fantastic.
A tribute to the career of a transcendent Joker
Now many will have been interested in this actor born in Puerto Rico in 1974, but the truth is that Joaquin Rafael Bottom, which is his real name, has the long career behind their backs. As we said before, Phoenix has been nominated three times for the Oscar, as a main actor and as a secondary actor, and has many other statuettes in the windows of his house.
Recognition is not only from specialized criticism. The actor has an important legion of fans that also follows and defends (Joaquin has a character … complicated) in everything he does. Within this group of fans is Luis Calles, a professional video editor quite famous in networks (his montages on Real Madrid ended up being so popular that he was signed by the football team) that he wanted to pay tribute to the star with a fantastic video in which you summarizes absolutely his entire career at the cinema (he has a look at the 33 films of his filmography).

The sequences last seconds, but they are enough to see the multiple faces that our Joker has adopted since its inception and with which it has achieved the recognition it currently enjoys. Four minutes and 43 seconds of assembly to the rhythm of the mythical «My Way» of Frank Sinatra that accumulates thousands of retweets, I like it and that has generated an extensive conversation in Twitter. And now you will discover why. Get in your chair, raise the speakers and press play:
