Spring Breakers Cast Names Submitted for Oscar Consideration

by: on | in Movies | 7 Comments



If you thought spring break was long over, think again! While we’ve tucked away Spring Breakers, the film starring Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco, in a tiny place in the back of our minds since its release, it appears that the studio behind it, A24, wants it to come to the forefront again — at next year’s Oscar ceremony.

Just like record companies can submit their recording artists for the Grammy nominations, studios can submit their acts for the Academy Awards, and Spring Breakers‘ has done just that. Roaming the Internet is a snapshot of the form with the following information: Best Director, Harmony Korine; Best Actress, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson; Best Supporting Actor, James Franco; Best Supporting Actress, Selena Gomez and Rachel Korine.

This doesn’t mean that any will snag a nod, but it’s the first step toward that goal. And it looks like there’s even a digital campaign for James to be acknowledged. According to Variety, it falls under the tagline “Consider This Sh*t.” Considering that, in recent years, Robert Downey, Jr. and Melissa McCarthy scored noms for their comical characters, it’s not out of the realm of possibility in James’ case. As for everyone else, well, what do you think? Do the ladies deserve the recognition? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!

    Ashley Benson (and probably Vanessa Hudgens as well) has a lot to learn about acting.

    If you actually look at the film as art, it is fantastic and that’s what the Oscars takes into consideration. The way Spring Breakers is filmed is actually quite beautiful and as a film major it’s one of my favorite films. Yes the content is out there but it is art. James did an incredible job in acting as Alien. He never broke character while on set even when they weren’t filming. His hard work I believe deserves to be nominated. The other girls maybe not as much. I think Vanessa and Ashley have a chance but as much as I want Selena to be able to win an Oscar I don’t think her performance was up to their standards.

    Honestly I love all these actor & actresses but the movie wasn’t that good. I’m sorry.

  • Robert

    This movie should be nominated. If those other movies no ones ever seen that win can so can this one. Plus they owe us for not nominating Mean Girls.

    Are you kidding me?! This movie and its actors don’t deserve any awards!
