The 92nd Academy Awards have arrived and with it, an opening dance sequence that quickly caught the attention of Joker fans. While Janelle Monae was signing an opening number, two dancers in full Arthur Fleck duds arrived on stage and began dancing around with actors with similar themes. Including Joker, other dancers included uniforms from 1917, Little Women, Us, Midsommar, and Dolemite Is My Name.
Reminiscient of that Joker scene of Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) dancing down a set of Gotham City stairs, the dancers followed Monae around the Dolby Theater, interacting with a host of celebrities including Leondardo DiCaprio and Captain Marvel star Brie Larson.
Suffice to say, the internet quickly began freaking out. Keep scrolling to see what everyone is saying!
