The Batman composer Michael Giacchino has congratulated Joker composer Hildur Guðnadóttir on her Oscar win.
Last night, Joker did not sweep the Oscars as some were hoping but the film did bring home a couple of gold trophies. Joaquin Phoenix took home an Oscar for Best Actor in a lead role and composer Hildur Guðnadóttir also won an Oscar for Best Original Score. In response, The Batman composer Michael Giacchino congratulated his fellow DC film composer on her win.
It was revealed that Michael Giacchino would be doing the music for Matt Reeves’ The Batman last year. The Batman composer had previously won an Oscar himself for his work on the 2009 Pixar film, Up. But now he has taken to Twitter to congratulate the Joker composer on her Oscar win.

Here is the official synopsis for Joker:
Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
Joker is now available on Digital HD, Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD.
The Batman hits theaters on June 25, 2021.
