Joaquin Phoenix Delivered a ‘Joker-‘esque Speech After Winning A Golden Globe Award



What do you expect from an artist? Probably not a boring speech, right? Sunday’s Golden Globes proved that art could also be quirky when the “Joker,” Joaquin Phoenix, the actor accepted his award for the Best Actor in a Drama.

During his speech, he was heavily-bleeped as he was addressing the climate crisis also as he was paying tribute to his fellow nominees and gesture to fiancée Rooney Mara.

The actor who played as Arthur Fleck in Joker got several mixed reactions from the audience at the Beverly Hills Hotel and the social media.

He thanked his fiancée genuinely and apologized to the director of Joker, Todd Philipps, for being “such a pain in the ass.”

He was also swearing, which caused a lot of bleeps. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t want to rock the boat. The boat is fucking rocked.”

He also thanked the Foreign Press Association for its meat-free meal and telling the people, “We don’t have to take private jets to Palm Springs … I’ll try to do better, and I hope you will too.”

However, during his speech, the orchestra interrupted him. Jordan Ruimy said, “Joaquin Phoenix, maybe the actor of his generation, calls out Hollywood, on live television, for using private jets, but then gets cut off by the orchestra. This is why I hate the Globes.”

Several social media users reacted and thanked Phoenix.

“Joaquin Phoenix is calling out the bullshit of Awards Season and celebrating the work of his fellow nominees! Plus, he breaks down while acknowledging Rooney Mara… THIS IS WHY WE LOVE HIM!!!!!!”

Another comment on his speech was “Joaquin Phoenix is giving no f*** in his remarks, and I’m living!”

However, his speech did not amuse other viewers and commenters.

“Joaquin Phoenix’s speech is a blank mad lib” and “can’t wait to see Joaquin Phoenix travel to the BAFTAS in a canoe he carved out of reclaimed wood.”

While some viewers were interested in his speech regarding Hollywood hypocrisy and said, “I am enjoying everyone in the audience nervously watching Joaquin Phoenix.”

For those who missed his famous speech, he said,

“First, I’d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press, um, for recognizing and acknowledging the link between animal agriculture and climate change. It’s a very bold move making plant-based tonight, and it sends a powerful message. This year marked the first time the awards banquet had been entirely vegan in an attempt to focus on environmental awareness and sustainability,” he continued, “However, most stars did not partake in the meal. I know people say this, but I do feel honored to be mentioned with you. Some of you I reached out to personally. Some I’m still a little too intimidated by, even though we share the same agent. Hi, Christian (Bale).
Contrary to popular belief, I don’t want to rock the boat, but the boat needs to be f—ing rocked” was the other infraction — though, in the end, some astute points were made. We don’t have to take private jets to Palm Springs for the awards sometimes, or back. Please, and I’ll try to do better, I hope you will too.”
