Franco Nabs Golden Globe Nod!


James Franco ** (Franco, GENERAL HOSPITAL) continues to generate Oscar buzz regarding his performance as real-life mountain climber Aron Ralston, who was forced to amputate his own arm after being trapped for 5 days by a boulder, in 127 Hours. First, both he and the biopic were nominated in the Best Male Lead and Best Feature categories for the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards, and now Franco -- who is set to co-host the Sunday, February 24, Academy Awards Oscars telecast along with **Anne Hathaway -- has received a Golden Globe nod as Best Actor In A Motion Picture Drama! The Golden Globes are often considered a precursor to Academy Award nominations, but don't talk about the movie's Oscar buzz with Franco! "It makes you insane," he recently told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel during an appearance on his ABC talk show, adding that he hopes presenting the telecast will take the "pressure off."
