Lady Gaga has landed a Razzie nomination for her performance in Machete Kills.
The singer’s brief appearance as a shapeshifting killer in Robert Rodriguez’s film earned her a Worst Supporting Actress nod. Rodriguez noted that he offered her a role in the film because he knew she was a fan of his work.
“I wrote her a part and she came down and I could tell she was going to be good,” Rodriguez said. “And the camera loves her like nobody’s business . . . It was a lot of fun. I can’t wait to work with her again. I may have already worked with her again.”
Gaga is up against fellow nominees Salma Hayek (Grown Ups 2), Katherine Heigl (The Big Wedding), Kim Kardashian (Temptation), and Lindsay Lohan (Scary Movie 5).
The 34th Annual Golden Raspberry Award take place on March 1.
