The Composer Who Transformed "Joker"

Here’s what you need to know about Hildur Guðnadottir: she’s from Iceland, she’s a cellist, she was a frequent collaborator with the late Johann Johannsson, she won an Emmy for her score for HBO’s Chernobyl and she transformed the character of Joker. She didn’t just score his transformation; her music altered Todd Phillips’ direction and Joaquin Phoenix’s performance. For her score, she won a Golden Globe and a Critics’ Choice Award and there’s a good chance she’ll take home an Oscar.
