Fans are doing victory laps online after 'The Joker' nabbed a whopping 11 Oscar nominations, more than 'The Irishman' and four more than 'Black Panther' got in 2019.
Joker received 11 nominations for best:— Sanjay (@JasonSanjay_) January 13, 2020

Comic book movies have finally cemented their place in both pop and indie movie culture and fans are very, very happy about that. But what's more exciting for people online, is that despite the months longs campaign 'against' the film didn't hurt it's profits nor it's reception, a feat fans are very excited about.
Film Twitter be mad that Joker got all the nominations lmao pic.twitter.com/wMsMZ1Yy12— Weekend Warrior (@wwarrior_1) January 13, 2020
Well not everybody is excited, many of the people who hated Joker when it came out are only growing with rage.
Oh, that's easy: Todd Philips does not deserve a nomination for directing. "Joker" is a good movie but not a great one. It was not among the best directed films of the year. Greta Gerwig and Lulu Wang, alone, were more deserving. https://t.co/8glmQ91cay— Charlotte Clymer (@cmclymer) January 13, 2020
TFW you have 11 Oscar nominations - more than any other film nominated - but you're *still* going to spend the night screaming into your XBox because "girls don't want nice guys"#Oscars2020 #Joker pic.twitter.com/TfisxDtmaj— Bob Chipman (@the_moviebob) January 13, 2020
Not only is Joker the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time, it is the first comic book film to beat out to competition in total Oscar nominations. So when people get upset about it, we feel the need to replenish our Uncut Tears with the sorrow of people who expected 'The Joker' to become Citizen Kane for incels.
Can’t believe the Joker got all those Oscar noms. Would gladly have those 2 hours back.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) January 13, 2020
Would have gone Greta over Phillips and J-Lo over Bates. Robbie got nominated for the wrong movie - should have been for Once Upon.
Sandler was top-5 but I can’t figure out who goes. Leo?
No Greta Gerwig for ‘Little Women,’ no Lulu Wang for ‘The Farewell,’ no Lorene Scafaria for ‘Hustlers,’ no Melina Matsoukas for ‘Queen & Slim’ no Marielle Heller for ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.’ Once again, the Oscars nominated five men for best director. #OscarNoms— Ramin Setoodeh (@RaminSetoodeh) January 13, 2020
Wow the academy really nominated todd phillips over greta gerwig and noah baumbach for directing.......... pic.twitter.com/rYWvPzspH6— giulia (@giuau) January 13, 2020
Todd Phillips getting nominated over Greta Gerwig will be my Joker origin story.— tylerthée huckabet (@TylerHuckabee) January 13, 2020
The Academy, having nominated Todd Phillips for best director, is sending a clear message that they have in fact never heard of Lulu Wang, Alma Ha’rel, Marielle Heller, Lorene Scafaria, Mati Diop, Celine Sciamma, Jennifer Kent, Olivia Wilde, GRETA GERWIG...— jellicle bcox the cinema cat (@BCoxBox) January 13, 2020
