  • James Franco Accused of Sexual Harassment After Golden Globes Win

The first person James Franco thanked when he got to the microphone to give his acceptance speech for winning Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical was Wiseau, who made and starred in the infamously bad film "The Room", and whom Franco portrayed in "The Disaster Artist".

Pink to Perform Super Bowl LII National Anthem
The vocalist, who was born Alecia Beth Moore, will sing the national anthem ahead of the February 4 title game at U.S. Pink is being given the honor of opening the 2018 Super Bowl next month by performing the national anthem.

The Golden Globes were dominated by the Time's Up movement, which aims to support those affected by sexual harassment and assault in all walks of life. Franco's gesture and the Golden Globes' decision to honor him, many pointed out, felt like an insult for a night that was intended as a protest and opportunity to support survivors and victims. "Said. too much. Nite love ya". "Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo", Ally tweeted. Unbeknownst to the actor, he also experienced a surge of backlash on Twitter while accepting his second Globe (he also won Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie for James Dean in 2002). "Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business", Ally tweeted during the Golden Globes. In a series of since-deleted tweets, actress Ally Sheedy slammed the 39-year-old, who directed her in an off-Broadway production of The Long Shrift in 2014.

Others on Twitter found themselves discussing a different Franco-related topic, specifically the actor's attempt to hook up with a 17-year-old via social media. She then named Christian Slater in another tweet. The question remains: what did James allegedly do? No one will ask him about the underage girls.

Time has apparently made the heart grow fonder as he prepares for his new show. The host has been off television since leaving CBS' " The Late Show " in 2015.

The Disaster Artist is positioned as a major Oscar contender, so during the rest of awards season, Franco will likely have to address these claims publically. Tbt to me speaking up for myself and other women on a franco set and immediately getting called a diva, told I was "out of line", and publicly humiliated by the producer. "It's hard to watch someone who hurt you be lavished w/ praise", said former L.A. Weekly writer April Wolfe on Twitter.
