Joker Wins Top Venice Film Festival Award Given To Oscar Winners

Polanski, a controversial director who fled the US after pleading guilty in 1977 to having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in Los Angeles, did not travel to Venice for the festival. The award was collected by his wife, actress Emmanuelle Seigner, who stars in the film.

Jury president Lucretia Martel announced the winners of the prestigious award during a ceremony on the Lido. The Golden Lion previously put a spotlight on films that went on to be major awards season players, such as "Roma" and the film academy's 2018 best picture winner, "The Shape of Water."

Joaquin Phoenix plays the title role in the film Joker, which had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival after winning the top award at the Venice film festival. (TIFF) 153554b96e
