James Franco May Have Won The Critics Choice Awards But He Wasn’t There To Accept

Film and television were honored by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. and Broadcast Television Journalists Assn. Thursday at the 23rd annual Critics’ Choice Awards. “The Shape of Water” walked away with four awards, including best picture and best director for Guillermo del Toro. No surprise, “Big Little Lies” also took home four awards as well.

Despite five women accusating of sexual misconduct, James Franco, still took home the award for best actor in a comedy for the “Disaster Artist.” He did however not attend the ceremony, and presenter Walton Goggins accepted on his behalf.

“Time’s Up” still took center stage with Del Toro, Gadot, Kidman and Kumail Nanjiani all using their voices in their speeches. The pay gap dispute was also hit upon.

The films that won, give a clear picture of how the Oscar race is shaping up.
