It sounds simple, but he was one of the few people that spoke in an inspired way about cinema and people he looked up to rather than name off people involved in the project or some social cause, which was every single other winner. The references sounded genuinely heartfelt and the directing category was stacked.

They were definitely clapping for his talent and the way he expressed himself without restraint. Even if they were embarrassed or shocked to some degree.
I was actually laughing at the fact that he had less to say about Phillips and Mendes.

So does everybody else who is not their wives, but it's still funny to see it in that context.

Totally, I was wondering while watching whether he’d mention them at all. Still, despite lack of filling the auteur label or having a substantive aesthetic Mendes has a very impressive filmography, and Phillips likely earned the nomination. I’m sure Phillips and Mendes would both understand regardless that they’re not in the same league.

Do you consider Phillips to be a good director? What is it that made Joker a good film, other than Phoenix's performance and Goransson's musical score?

I wonder what Phillips will want to do next. Almost certainly he wants to make another non-canonical comic book movie, but the Joker movie that he made does not lend itself to an obvious sequel. I think that a Lex Luthor film, where Superman is portrayed as an out of control alien that undermines humanity, would be a good choice.

I binged Locke and Key--and I really liked it.

Also watching The Outsider and I like that too.

films
IT 2 and The Joker..liked both.
The Joker is a better film and performance was fantastic, but I 'enjoyed' IT 2 more, found it fun.

Other than that I'm having a hard time finding time and focusing on TV/films.
