As anticipated, Joker won three awards including lead actor Joaquin Phoenix, whose speech on diversity and 'systemic racism' earned him praised from all quarters. Hildur Guðnadóttir also won for Original Score and Shayna Markowitz for Casting, the latter a new award this year, as per The Hollywood Reporter 

Margot Robbie and Scarlett Johansson both earned double nominations but went home empty-handed.
