Thanks for the info. Franco does generally come off conceited and creepy. Of course he plays that a lot onscreen, but maybe a little too well. Remember Kevin Spacey playing all those creepy characters onscreen for years and he turns out to be a child molester? American Beauty looks very different now. And he won a ing Oscar for that. Which should have gone to Brad Pitt for Fight Club.

Thanks for all that, Theresa! Yeah, I do think that the #MeToo movement needs to slow their roll and not become a version of sexual McCarthyism. Let's save the condemnation for the actual sexual abusers and harassers and let due process take over instead of the court of public opinion. But I do agree that Franco has been a bit of a sleaze over the years, which is nothing illegal, but it is unsightly. And to think that guys like Kevin Spacey had Hollywood kissing their asses for years, but Hugh continues to get snubbed. He was also one of the best Oscar hosts since Billy Crystal, but have they invited him back?

The #MeToo movement was so contrived at the Golden Globes. Don't even get me started on that. I'm a woman, and I'll admit I think it is a bit ridiculous that we live in a world now where my male co-worker felt the need to apologize to me for complimenting my hair. Society has become way too politically correct, and Hollywood is full of a bunch of hypocrites anyway. People's speeches were so forced and men were obviously uncomfortable at the Golden Globes. As for Franco, eh ... his personality is so meh to me ... but hopefully he'll stop being sleazy and creepy now that he's been called out.

THIS! Hugh was a great Oscars host!

I never had the desire to see American Beauty. I do agree that Brad Pitt should have won for Fight Club. That's my favorite movie of his.

Crap! Yes, I did, Theresa. I just typed the wrong username because it's usually LightYears who posts all that kind of stuff. She's our resident X-Men news reporter, so I just made a typo out of habit. I've also posted Sarah's name when I meant to reply to someone else. I'm sorry. But thanks for posting those.

Thanks for agreeing with me. The #MeToo movement is in danger of going the way of #BlackLivesMatter, where people stop paying attention due to overreach. I agree that PC has gotten totally ridiculous and out of hand, which started a long time ago back in the 90's. And I'd also compliment you on your hair, by the way.

And Pitt didn't even get nominated for it. The awards just ignored Fight Club. Actually, the movie was highly controversial when it came out and critics slammed it. The lead critic in the Irish Times still hates it.

I didn't like Fight Club when I first saw it. Not because of the story, it just didn't hit with me at first. It took repeat viewings for me to appreciate it, although I'm still not a Brad Pitt fan. And I really didn't take to Hugh until I saw him in The Prestige. I wasn't much of a fan of the original X-Men films. I loved Hugh in Days of Future Past and Logan, though.
