James Franco Accuser: Tolerating Him Lets Harvey Weinstein Off the Hook, Too

Say sorry Just before the nominations were announced two of his accusers sat down with GMA and said that they just want the actor to'apologize for his actions

Tiffany Haddish and Andy Serkis present the nominees.

She also became the first artiste to be nominated for a performance and an original song in the same year.

It's unclear whether the allegations, which were made public just a day before Oscar nomination voting closed, affected Franco's nomination chances, but many noted a potential connection on Tuesday. Their tweets went viral, and the Los Angeles Times followed up with a story that included more allegations of misconduct.

But it was only released nationwide in the United States last week, and it wasn't nominated for a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award, or a British Academy of Film and Television Arts award (BAFTA). The actor, who faces multiple sexual misconduct allegations, was not among those nominated.

Granted, there are other factors working against Franco.

"We spoke a little bit about the Time's Up movement at the Golden Globes, and I know you're a supporter of the movement, as am I", Rancic began.

While Sarah Tither-Kaplan believed The Disaster Artist star "created an exploitative environment" at his Studio 4 film school, she admitted his behavior wasn't anything close to that of the bigger predators in Hollywood.

The LA Times published a piece about five women accusing Franco on January 11 - just one day before the Oscar nominations closed, leaving only last minute voters to mull over the allegations.

Japanese city issues fugu fish alert
At least five packages with the life-threatening fish were sold in the city of Gamagori, central Japan, local media report. Regional health officials said Tuesday a supermarket in Gamagori sold five packages of assorted blowfish meat on Monday.

Paley, 23, was a former romantic partner of Franco's, and described being pressured into performing oral sex on him.

In interviews with Seth Meyers on The Late Show and Stephen Colbert on The Tonight Show, Franco denied the veracity of the claims.

"I wish I had been strong enough to say no", she said. "He's not an unforgivable person", she said, "at least for me".

"The things I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn't have a voice for so long".

The Academy has already gone through this, although we were in a different cultural moment.

"All The Money in the World" has been plastered all over the news in recent months, but mostly for its drama, not its content. Christopher Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey, who was accused of sexual misconduct by a number of young men. His win was decried by many on social media and Brie Larson, who presented the Oscar to Affleck, didn't applaud him, an act she said was "intentional".

Franco also hosted the Oscars with Anne Hathaway in 2011. Said too much.... James Franco just won. However, some fans have pointed out that Logan, one of 2017's other big superhero movies, was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, which suggests that it's not the superhero genre that turns the Academy off, but the merits of Wonder Woman specifically.

Two women took aim at the actor for wearing a "TimesUp" pin at the Golden Globes last week making allegations of impropriety against the 39-year-old.
