James Franco Was Not Nominated for a Best Actor Oscar

James Franco Was Not Nominated for a Best Actor Oscar

Despite his film The Disaster Artist earning a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination, Franco was left out of the Best Actor field at this morning's Oscar nominations, where he had been widely assumed to be one of the top contenders. Shortly afterwards, five of them spoke to the L.A. Times about his alleged behavior.

On Tuesday morning, the 2018 Oscar nominations were announced, and there was a notable name missing from the list.

"James is absolutely not a Harvey Weinstein", she stated. "After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?" Actress Violet Paley revealed an interaction with Franco while she was reportedly in a romantic relationship him, in which he reportedly began "nudging" her head toward his genitals. "I mean, I'm regretful, I was young, he was a celebrity I looked up to".

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, who took classes at Studio 4 - the film school James founded in 2014 - claimed he once removed the safety guards (used to protect an actor's modesty) while filming an oral sex scene for the film The Long Home. "Times up on that!"

However, Franco's Oscar campaign came to a screeching halt just after the Globes when allegations first surfaced on Twitter and a few days later when the LA Times story broke, in which five women accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior.

"You're very nervous", Robach said.

When asked what they want Franco to do next, Tither-Kaplan said she hoped he would use "his power to give opportunities to women that are real and valuable and actually give them career advancement". Students that didn't comply, however, would be asked to leave or simply not asked to be in other projects, Kaplan said.

Alison Brie discussed her brother-in-law James Franco's sexual misconduct allegations at the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards, saying that "anyone who feels victimized should and does have the right to speak out". "He created exploitative environments for non-celebrity women on his sets". So if we allow any of them, we allow all of them.

Franco's reps claim the women's accusations are not accurate, and Franco has publicly denied the accusations.

Film critic Tim Robey said the allegations "almost certainly" cost Franco his nomination. "I do it - whenever I know that there is something wrong or needs to be changed, I make it a point to do it".

On Saturday, Scarlett Johansson called out Franco at the Women's March in Los Angeles.

Even those accusing James Franco of sexual misconduct don't necessarily think he's a monster.

"I just didn't want him to hate me, so I did it", Paley said.
