“Joker,” which was up for four awards, was the most talked about film out of the nominees during the awards show and has been a trending hashtag on the social media platform since its release in October. In conjunction, actor Joaquin Phoenix was also trending on Instagram, boosted by his win for best actor in a drama.
His trending status can also be credited to his sister, Rain Phoenix, who posted a photo of her brother with his fiancée Rooney Mara a few days prior to the awards show. The photo was captioned with a quote from the actor himself where he applauds the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for serving a plant-based dinner at the awards show.

“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that this year’s Golden Globe Awards would – for the very first time – serve an all plant-based dinner. By acknowledging animal agriculture’s role in the degradation of our planet and boldly taking measures to do its part to reduce harm, the HFPA has shown great leadership. Thank you, Mr. Soria, the brilliant chefs, and everyone working so hard to confront the environmental perils we face by supporting a plant-based 77th Golden Globes celebration.” – Joaquin . . . . . #joaquinphoenix #rooneymara #plantbased #goldenglobes #planet #animals #humanity #globalwarming #hfpa #climatecrisis #climateemergency #carbonoffset #newdecade #2020 #compassionisalwaysinfashion #babybro #firstpost #vegan #rebelwithacause #gamechanger
