Joker made Golden Globes history on January 5 with two wins out of four nominations at its annual ceremony, the most of any comic book-based film in the history of the awards.

Joaquin Phoenix earned one Golden Globe

for Best Performance by an Actor in a

Motion Picture — Drama, while the composer

Hildur Gudnadóttir captured the film's other

trophy for Best Original Score — Motion

Picture.

This marks the second time the character

has garnered a Golden Globe for his

portrayer; Heath Ledger won a posthumous

Golden Globe trophy for playing The Joker

in The Dark Knight in 2009.

Gudnadóttir’s win also marked another historic distinction: the first Golden Globes solo win for a female composer.

The film began the evening with four nominations — including Best Motion Picture — Drama and Best Director — Motion Picture  —  the most Golden Globe nominations for a comic-based movie since 1990s Dick Tracy commanded the same number. It has earned more than $1 billion worldwide, making it the most successful R-rated film of all time.
