Joaquin Phoenix’s Acting Career
Phoenix’s acting career dates back to the early ’80s when he made a few small appearances on several TV series, including “Hill Street Blues” and “Murder, She Wrote.” Although he started to land bigger roles on TV and in film, Phoenix decided to take a break from acting for a few years, and returned to the big screen in 1995’s “To Die For.”
He reached new levels of fame in 2000 when he starred in “Gladiator,” which earned him his first Oscar nomination. The movie was also a box office hit, grossing $465 million worldwide, according to IMDbPro. Phoenix has since earned three more Oscar nominations: for 2005’s “Walk the Line,” 2012’s “The Master” and 2019’s “Joker.” He won his first Academy Award for “Joker,” which is also his most successful move in terms of box office revenue — the film grossed a whopping $1.07 billion worldwide.
