He made quite an impression on audiences with his “Spring Breakers” Alien character, and now James Franco wants an Academy Award to adorn his mantle.

The “Palo Alto” hunk appears in a new “For Your Consideration” ad asking for Oscar votes for the Best Supporting Actor category.

All done up in gangster gear, Franco holds two Oscar trophies while Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson posed in their bikinis.

An A24 Films rep told press, "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."
