LOS ANGELES - While the ink is still drying on the 2018 Oscar nominations, social media users were up in arms for varying reasons about James Franco not making the cut.
Franco won a Golden Globe award for Best Actor but has been the topic of much discussion following accusations of inappropriate sexual conduct levelled against him.
