The Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Science just snubbed James Franco for an Oscar.

Franco already took home the Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards for his role in “The Disaster Artist,” but lost out on the Screen Actors Guild award to Gary Oldman.

Going into awards season, the “Pineapple Express” actor was a shoe-in for an Oscar nod.  He lost out to the likes of Daniel Day-Lewis, Denzel Washington and Daniel Kaluuya.

However, Franco’s movie, “The Disaster Artist,” was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

The nomination comes in the midst of Franco being accused by several women of inappropriate sexual behavior, allegations he denies but stands by the women’s right to speak up.

The Academy was in the middle of the voting period for nominations when the news broke of Franco’s alleged misconduct.

The actor was noticeably absent from the Critics Choice Awards after the allegations surfaced but he did attend the SAG Awards and was met with a tepid response.
