Jared Leto is among the distinguished actors being, um, honored at the 42nd Annual Golden Raspberry Awards, aka the Razzies.

The parody show, which awards the “best of the worst” of the year in movies, has nominated the Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman’s performance in House of Gucci for Worst Supporting Actor.

Additionally, Leto is up for Worst Onscreen Couple along with “either his is 17-pound latex face, his geeky clothes or his ridiculous accent” while playing real-life fashion designer Paolo Gucci in the Lady Gaga-starring film.

Leto, who was previously nominated for a Razzie for his much-memed portrayal of the Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad, can take comfort in his House of Gucci performance being nominated for several real awards, including the Screen Actors Guild Awards and Critics’ Choice Awards.

Among the other Razzie nominees this year is Megan Fox for Worst Actress in Midnight in the Switchgrass, which is notably the film where the Transformers star met her future fiancé, Machine Gun Kelly.

While the “Bloody Valentine” rocker probably wouldn’t agree with the Razzies’ assessment of Fox’s performance, he doesn’t seem to be a fan of the movie they starred in together. Around the time Midnight in the Switchgrass was released, Kelly tweeted, “If I don’t talk or tweet about a movie I’m barely in it’s because it’s [trash emoji].”

This year’s Razzie “winners” will be announced March 26, the day before the Oscars take place on March 27. For more info, visit Razzies.com.
