James Franco's Oscar Campaign Commences: "Consider This Sh*t"

We're kind of loving this--and yes, we actually thought James Franco was excellent in Spring Breakers!

Check out the new "For Your Consideration" campaign for the star of the polarizing film:

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

THR has learned that the new distributor (A24 Films) has prepared campaign materials, which will be released imminently, that pay homage to Franco's character Alien and his extended boastful rant in the film about his cool property, or "sh*t" -- by using the slogan "CONSIDER THIS SH*T" as he holds an Oscar statuette in each of his hands.

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." With regard to the unconventional language that is being employed for the campaign, the spokesperson explained, "We plan to create an awards campaign that is thematically consistent with the film itself."

Kind of a long shot, but we're looking forward to a creative and hopefully hilarious campaign!

"Spring Breeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaakkkkkkk!"
