Jared Leto channels The Joker to accept “Best Villain” nomination for the MTV Movie Awards

The nominations for the 2017 MTV Movie Awards were released this week and Jared Leto has been nominated for “Best Villain” for his performance as The Joker in Suicide Squad.

Leto took to Twitter this afternoon to thank MTV for the nomination in the best way possible… as The Joker! He put a slight twist on one of his lines from Suicide Squad. Check it out below:

The MTV Movie Awards air live on May 7th. I think Leto has this one in the bag, but you can help out and vote for him. Check out his competition below.
