James Franco reveals outrageous 'Spring Breakers' Oscar campaign
On Monday (Sept. 2), Franco and distributor A24 Films revealed their campaign to score the actor an (admittedly long-shot) best supporting actor nod for his turn in March's "Spring Breakers."
The promo plays on Franco's character, gangsta rapper Alien, showing the actor in costume, alongside his bikini-clad co-stars Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens. In each hand, he holds an Oscar statuette. Oh -- and the tagline? "CONSIDER THIS S***."
Could the unconventional promotional material do the trick for Franco? Only time will tell. An A24 spokesperson tells THR, "James Franco has created a character so indelible it deserves recognition. We are excited to be able to support it with a campaign and know the impact of Alien will last far past this awards season."
Do you think Oscar voters will consider Franco and his "s***" awards season?
