Jared Leto, his "17-pound latex face," and his bizarre accent in House Of Gucci are up for a Razzie

House Of Gucci has already received nominations in major awards ceremonies this year, and now it can add another one to the list: the Razzies.

This year’s nominees for the only awards ceremony that celebrates the worst of Hollywood were announced on Monday, and Jared Leto, who plays Paolo Gucci in House Of Gucci, is among the nominees for Worst Supporting Actor.

Though some people gave Lady Gaga a hard time for her Italian accent, the actor who faced the most criticism for his role in the film is Leto. With pounds of prosthetics hiding his face and slender physique, Leto ended up looking like he was about to do man on the street-type pranks on Jackass rather than embodying Gucci founder Guccio Gucci’s grandson.

Leto is not the only big name nominated this year either. Ben Platt and LeBron James aren’t being let off the hook for the much-discussed flops Dear Evan Hansen and Space Jam: A New Legacy; both Platt and James have been nominated for Worst Actor.

It’s also a rough year for Academy Award-nominee Amy Adams, who was nominated for Worst Actress in The Woman In The Window and for Worst Supporting Actress in Dear Evan Hansen.

But things could be worse for Adams considering Bruce Willis got his own special category this year: Worst Performance By Bruce Willis In A 2021 Movie. It features a whopping eight flicks, including American Siege, Apex, Cosmic Sin, Deadlock, Fortress, Midnight In The Switchgrass, Out of Death, and Survive the Game. At least his career’s busy.

Netflix’s cringey Diana The Musical is also nominated in every category—sometimes scoring multiple nominations in the same category—perhaps making it the worst piece of pop culture from the last year by the Razzies’ standards. We’ll find out who the “lucky” winners are on March 26. The full list of nominees is below.
