loudtoilet: This looks like an absolute blast and I’m so happy they took a campy approach. Fake accents are perfect for this. Gaga is sweeping. She looks magnificent.

schmids: It is so camp I am all in. The only way to tell this story was to lean into it, but time will tell if they can maintain it for the run time.

alittle03: The trailer actually succeeded my expectations! Gaga looks great and I’m excited to see her in it.

GD: Wow! Pleasantly surprise by this.


Film expert: It doesn’t look like Oscar film at all. Maybe Gaga will get nominated if she will campaign hard but that’s all.

winslets: Academy Award winner Lady Gaga! The mamacita is coming.

M: The trailer is like 80% Gaga lol. It’s hard to tell about the other actors performance. And it’s also hard to tell whether it’ll be an Oscar contender. But Gaga’s performance seems to be good.

mporter455: This is definitely a Gaga vehicle. We suspected that but the trailer really confirms it. Too early to say how it’ll play in awards season. It’s not your typical brooding, stoic Oscar contender so maybe this different tone will benefit it? Not sure, we’ll see.

dī(ə)mənd tir: It’s giving me “American Hustle” but more campy & with better wigs.

Scott is hoping “House of Gucci” will bring him his first Oscar win after previously being nominated four times: “Thelma & Louise” (directing, 1991), “Gladiator” (directing, 2000), “Black Hawk Down” (directing, 2001) and “The Martian” (producing, 2015). The renowned director also has “The Last Duel” coming out in October, another potential Oscar player.

As for the main cast members, many of them already have Oscars on their mantels: Gaga for “A Star Is Born” (songwriting, 2018), Leto for “Dallas Buyers Club” (supporting actor, 2013), Irons for “Reversal of Fortune” (lead actor, 1990) and Pacino for “Scent of a Woman” (lead actor, 1992). Might “House of Gucci” be the vehicle that earns Gaga her first Oscar for acting? Vote in our poll below.
