I’m going to start by correcting an assumption that may have been made from the headline. No, I don’t think “Joker” should win because the left hates it, although that does make it kind of sweeter to me.
The reason “Joker” should win is because it’s so well done. The writing, the acting, and the cinematography are so well done that my only complaint about it is that it made me feel oppressed and claustrophobic, but that was intentional by the director Todd Philips, meaning even that is a result of how well the movie was made.
