Hildur Gudnadóttir has already made history with a Golden Globe victory. Ahead of the #Oscars, the #Joker composer reflects on a sequel, "bad" media clickbait and her star-making year https://t.co/9OIDPTz8cG— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) January 31, 2020
- Hildur Gudnadóttir made history as the first solo female composer to win a Golden Globe for scoring 'Joker'. She is also nominated for an Oscar. "It felt exciting for me, and I see this as a movement where more and more women are being invited into the film industry."
- On the controversy surrounding the film: "I don't think the film is celebrating violence. Joker has quite the social commentary on how we could be doing better as a society. In the end, I think a lot of the media hype was part of the problem. It was highlighting an opportunity for someone with bad intentions, sort of fanning the flames for clickbait. We have to remind the media there is a huge responsibility in what they promote."
