I know that the 1990 version of It was a TV series, but Tim Curry was (in my humble opinion) way more scary than Bill Skarsgård) - any chance of including?

If I were you, I wouldn't consider the Joker not because he is not a clown, though not in the popular conception (is the Mask a clown?), but he is such a popular figure the others will not stand a chance... and Pennywise will get the rest of the votes.

I would have made my poll about non-franchise clown movies and for your consideration Fellini's "I Clowns" and Belmondo's heist film "Hold-up".

Thanks, but I prefer to keep it this way. I Clowns and Hold-up added.

Seconding this as well.

There are 58 out of 61 [three are the Joker] films with the restrictions of...
Feature Film, User Rating at least 6, Rating Count at least 500, Plot Matching "CLOWN" (Sorted by Popularity Ascending)
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=feature&user_rating=6.0,&num_votes=500,&pl...

Dozens of actual clowns in much higher rated films are missing from this shotgunned list.

No problem, it's just that The Dark Knight is such a popular film...
