No doubt that one of the most impacting components of 'Joker' is Hildur Guðnadóttir's incredible score.
Made up of droning violins and really adding to the atmosphere of dread and tragedy, the score has so far won the Golden Globe, BAFTA, Critics' Choice, and the Satellite Award in its respective categories. Not only that, it's all but guaranteed to win Best Original Score at the Oscars on Sunday night.
