Esteemed ladies and gentlemen of the Academy, consider this sh*t.

The latter phrase is the amusing headline on a new "For your consideration" ad seeking Oscar votes for James Franco as Best Supporting Actor for his work in the ribald drama Spring Breakers.

The ad has quite the arresting image, too: Franco, 35, as his gangsta character Alien from the film, clutching a pair of Oscar statuettes and flanked by a couple of bikini babes.

A rep for Spring Breakers distributor A24 Films tells the Hollywood Reporter: "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."
