Based on their 2016 performances, four Oscar-winning actors — Jared Leto, Julia Roberts, Robert De Niro and Nicolas Cage — could join an elite group of Oscar champs who have also been “honored” at the Razzies. If any of them wins when the Razzies are handed out the day prior to the Oscar ceremony, they will join screen icons like Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry, Ben Affleck and Lord Laurence Olivier as “winners” at both kudos. Click through our photo gallery above of the 16 performers who won at both the Oscars and Razzies.

Roberts, who won Best Actress in 2000 for “Erin Brockovich,” competes in the Worst Actress category for “Mother’s Day,” while De Niro, a two-time winner for 1980’s “Raging Bull” (Best Actor) and 1974’s “The Godfather Part II” (Best Supporting Actor), is nominated for Worst Actor for “Dirty Grandpa.”
Meanwhile Cage, a Best Actor winner for 1995’s “Leaving Las Vegas,” faces off against Leto, a Supporting Actor winner in 2013 for “Dallas Buyer’s Club,” in the Worst Supporting Actor category. Cage is Razzie-nominated for Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” while Leto is up for his take on The Joker in “Suicide Squad.”

In the 37-year history of the Razzies, only two Oscar winners actually showed up to collect their awards. Halle Berry was a surprise attendee in 2004 when she showed up to accept the Worst Actress Razzie for “Catwoman.” Holding both her Razzie and her Best Actress Oscar — for 2001’s “Monster’s Ball” — Berry gave a hilarious speech in which she thanked the studio and her manager for putting her in a “godawful piece of s*** movie.”
In 2009 Sandra Bullock showed up to collect her Worst Actress prize for “All About Steve” just one day before winning a Best Actress Oscar for “The Blind Side.” Whether Leto, Roberts, De Niro or Cage will have the good humor to do the same as Bullock and Berry remains to be seen. But where’s the harm in laughing at yourself from time to time?
