In addition to the film's record-breaking box office successJoker was a critical and awards season star. Phoenix's performance and the film's score, composed by Hildur Guonadóttir, were especially popular with awards show voters. 

Both Phillips and Phoenix have mentioned that a sequel to Joker is a possibility.
