James Franco was present in the audience at the Screen Actors Guild, and his time on camera created a tense moment for Holllywood's biggest stars.
Franco was nominated for Leading Actor in a Film for "The Disaster Artist," and when he was shown at his seat the audience gave a mixed reaction of murmurs and applause.
The actor did not walk the red carpet when his sister-in-law Alison Brie spoke on his alleged sexual misconduct scandal. However, unlike Aziz Ansari, he sat through the show but was only shown on camera once.
Franco was expected to be a favorite for the award, but lost to Gary Oldman.
