Everyone was waiting for the 2018 Oscar nominations to be released, mainly because they wanted to see if James Franco would be nominated for Best Actor. And if he was nominated, would he attend? As you all know, five women accused him of acting inappropriately during sexual encounters.
The allegations against him came out shortly after he won the Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. He was also nominated for Best Actor at the SAG Awards last weekend, but he did not attend that event. And when his name was announced, the audience did not cheer for him.
Well, the 2018 Oscar nominations were released early Tuesday morning, and Franco’s name did not appear on the list. He was not nominated for Best Actor, which means the question, “Will he attend?” has been answered. He won’t be there because he was not nominated. His movie, The Disaster Artist, wasn’t completely shut out though. It received a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
You can view the full list of nominees below. It looks pretty much like I expected. It’s a bit surprising that The Florida Project wasn’t nominated for Best Picture. In fact, the only nomination it received was for Willem Dafoe’s performance in a supporting role.
