3. Jack Nicholson- (Batman) 1989 

-This was the only movie Jack would have celebrated the most. In the thick makeup, he enacts Joker beautifully. It’s been decades since the movie first came out and the other Actors make it a tough competition for Jack to win the crown. 

2. Joaquin Phoenix- (Joker) 2019 

-Joaquin performance in the movie Joker was remarkable. His role in the movie was more concentrated on displaying what deeds of society made a person turn into a criminal. Joaquin falls on number 2 as Joker is a clown who likes destruction and attaching feelings with his personality doesn’t fascinate the audience. 

1. Heath Ledger- (The Dark Knight)- 2008

-Heath in ‘The Dark Knight’ is the best joker forever. He has the best terrific laugh of all, he has psychopathic possession, the jolly emotion in his “I don’t wanna kill you” and what else do you want.
