    Surprised this hasn’t been mentioned on the forums yet, but following his Globe win numerous women have come forward accusing him of sexual misconduct. From New York Daily News:

    Almost immediately after the actor scooped up a trophy for “The Disaster Artist” Sunday, on a night the industry spoke out against sexual harassment, Franco came under attack.

    Actress Violet Paley claimed the actor once sexually assaulted her and tried to lure her 17-year-old friend to his hotel room.

    “Cute #TimesUp pin James Franco. Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?” she wrote on Twitter.

    Paley, who clarified that she was an adult and not a teen at the time, added that she did have a consensual relationship with Franco, but that the alleged encounter she mentioned was against her will. Paley did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Just noticed it was mentioned on The Guilds forum, but I still feel like it needs a forum of its own

    He was questioned about it during a Colbert interview and the New York Times has canceled a planned event promoting Franco and The Disaster Artist.

    Right now I’ve pulled him off from my Oscar predictions and replaced him with Denzel Washington. Even if I loved his performance, he’s not a deserved nominee anymore in my book.

    It was also mentioned by PJ Edwards on Golden Globe Film Winners Reaction Thread and replied to by me and a couple others.

    This will hurt his Oscar chances. Whether true or not it will affect his chances to get shortlisted.

    Suspect timing but really no surprise considering Franco’s history. And the fact that he’s almost 40 and has never had any type of “real” relationship is gonna make a good-looking, rich man look sus.

    However, Franco in recent years has come off like a “recovered” perv and megalomaniac looking to absolve himself of his past instincts and behavior. I’m not saying that makes his past okay. But I also think he may be a victim of the rippling effect when it comes to Hollywood abuse and power play as well as someone who’s continued the rippling.

    Suspect timing but really no surprise considering Franco’s history. And the fact that he’s almost 40 and has never had any type of “real” relationship has always made him look sus.

    James doesn’t seem that “recovered” considering he is not only denying all of the allegations…

    …he also tried offering some of his victims a couple weeks ago an “overdue, annoyed, convenient phone “apology.”” Talk about REAL suspect timing!

    The “suspect timing” on this shitstorm is likely due to his being more in the spotlight than he has been in his entire career, including when he was in contention for 127 Hours. He didn’t win the Globe for that one, and I believe seeing him up on that stage with that “Time’s Up” pin, pretending to be an ally when he is a predator himself, triggered many of his victims. They had already been speaking up, only now are we finally listening.

    Not in the spotlight, He was the host of the Academy Awards that year, he was everywhere.

    When I say “recovered” I just mean that he’s likely stopped the behavior and seems to be aware that he did some fvcked up sh*t. Of course, no one knows that for sure. And it would be nice if he had the balls to be real about that through the press and wasn’t a hypocrite. Ultimately, Franco has always come off as being “off” and like he’s been wrestling with quite a few things. Him speaking up about his own behaviors and perhaps things that have happened to him would be game-changer. But once again, I don’t think he’ll have those balls.

    He stalks underage girls, we know that for sure from this damning disgusting screencap. https://twitter.com/VioletPaley?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

    I completely agree that he won’t have those balls to come clean about his… being a f**king creep, shall I say? He showed such range in The Disaster Artist that I almost want to feel sorry for him, but ultimately the guy did it to himself by abusing his power with the women around him. I feel more sorry for the women, for his victims, than anyone else in this terrible situation.

    I was talking about whether he’s stopped his behaviors and understands his behavior. Anyone who’s been paying long enough and detailed enough attention knows a lot of the things Franco’s been up to.

    There was a blind item about this last month. This will hurt his chances of a oscar nomination
