Consider This Shit: James Franco’s ‘Spring Breakers’ Oscar Campaign Begins (VIDEO)

+

No one actually thinks that James Franco will win an Oscar for his gawdy take on the Southern wannabe gangsta in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers, but stranger things have happened, like that time three minutes ago when my left eye ball fell out of its socket. Anyway, A24, the production house behind Spring Breakers, seems to think Franco has a shot, probably because his character, Alien, is arguably the most iconic movie character to emerge this year, and people are still quoting his famous “shit” speech. In fact, the very grave trailer below, reminding us what a stretch this performance was, can’t help referencing it either.
