Cutting off his right arm on-screen in “127 Hours” has earned James Franco GRD ’16 a best actor in a dramaGolden Globe nomination. Hopefully, he does not need to sever his left one to win it.
The announcement was made Tuesday morning, marking Franco’s third Globe nomination. He previously earned a Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film in 2001 for his portrayal of the titular character in the biopic “James Dean.”
In “127 Hours,” Franco plays Aron Ralston, the real-life mountain climber who amputated his own arm to release himself from under a boulder after being trapped for five days, in a performace that has generated plenty of Oscar buzz. All the more reason for Franco to make out with himself.
