Jared Leto could tie SAG Awards winning record with House of Gucci
With his third Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for supporting actor, Jared Leto attached Chris Cooper as a performer with most nominations in the category. But should the actor and musician win for his transformative turn as a family punching bag Paul Gucci in Ridley Scott“House of Gucci”, it will also equal another record.
As things stand, only one man has ever won the SAG Award for Supporting Actor more than once. Mahershala Ali landed his first for his performance in “Moonlight” (2016) before returning to his matching bookend two years later for his turn in “Green Book” (2018). He won the Oscar twice. Leto already has a win in the support category; he was before nominated for his work in “Dallas Buyers Club” (2013) and “The Little Things” (2021), winner for the former (he also won the corresponding Oscar for his performance that year). If he triumphs again this year, he will join Ali in the history books and become only the second double winner in the supporting actor category. However, it looks like he has some work to do before that.

Currently, Leto is in fourth place in Gold Derby Combined Odds at 9/2. “The Power of the Dog” Kodi Smit McPhee leads the pack with five pundits predicting he will triumph, giving the youngster odds of 10/3. Troy Kotsur of “CODA” follows him in second position (odds 37/10), while by Bradley Cooper A short but memorable appearance in “Licorice Pizza” puts him in third place (odds 9/2). Completing the peloton in fifth place is Ben Affleck (rating 9/2), which was recognized for its performance in George Clooney‘s “The Tender Bar.”
Although Leto faces an uphill battle, the mere fact that he is only the second person in SAG Awards history to earn three supporting actor nominations is proof that SAG-AFTRA voters love and enjoy what he does. Although he’s mostly unrecognizable as bald, overweight Paolo in “House of Gucci,” which details the rise and fall of the Gucci family, it is Leto’s clear performance stuck with voters. In the meantime, the fact that the film has been recognized in the together race and Lady Gaga won a lead actress nomination for his representation of Patrizia Reggiani — whose tumultuous relationship with Adam Driverit is Maurizio Gucci is chronicled in the film – probably also speaks to the voters’ goodwill towards the film as a whole.
