A24 Continues Oscar Campaign For James Franco's 'Spring Breakers' Performance


It seems that the "fever dream" that is "Spring Breakers" isn't exactly over yet. With Oscar nominations fast approaching, A24, the movie's distributor, is making a serious pitch for James Franco to be considered as a possible Best Supporting Actor nominee.

The company took it's bid to Twitter on Thursday, citing quotes about James Franco's performance as Alien in the polarizing film.

Franco's performance was first singled out by the studio in a September ad that debuted in The Hollywood Reporter.

Not everyone is excited about the idea of James Franco, "Spring Breakers" Oscar nominee:

Franco will get Oscar nominated for SPRING BREAKERS when Zach Braff gets a nod for OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL

But if no one else, we know he has his grandma's vote.

The 86th annual Academy Awards will take place on March 2, 2014.
