Here are all the allegations against James Franco

Yet the industry's ongoing sexual misconduct crisis remained an element of the ceremony as James Franco won an acting award early in the evening, hours after a report detailed new misconduct allegations against "The Disaster Artist" star and director.

As James Franco was accepting the Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for his work in The Disaster Artist, several women were preparing to speak their minds about inappropriate interactions they've had with him in the past.

Three former acting students of James Franco have alleged he created environments which were sexually exploitative, and withheld roles in his film projects for up-and-coming performers who were willing to appear nude. Four of them were Franco's students, while the other one was his mentee at the film school that the actor founded.

On Tuesday, Franco told The Late Show's Stephen Colbert that none of the claims made on Twitter were accurate but that he supports both the Time's Up movement and women speaking out. Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, denied the claims.
