James Franco was AWESOME in Spring Breakers. I know I’m biased, because I loved the movie. But…do you think he deserves an Oscar for his performance? The film’s distributors seem to think so!
The distributors of the Harmony Korine indie darling are asking voters this award season to take a look at James’ tour de force role and “consider this sh*t!” via a print campaign and now a full video by A24 Films. The video showcases James in the flick along with all of his critical acclaim.
Okay- from someone who got a nod for a heartwrenching movie like 127 hours, it would be amazing/hilarious/perfect if he got the win for Spring Breakers!
Of course, the chances of Franco actually getting nominated for Best Supporting Actor seem slim to us. Selena Gomez even asks at the end of this campaign video: “Are you being serious??”
BUT: Spring Breakers just recently picked up an Independent Spirit Awards nomination for Best Cinematography, and a spokesperson for A24 insists that this is NOT a joke! A rep for the company said:
“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.”
