James Franco is reportedly feeling “relieved” after being snubbed from the The Academy’s 2018 Oscars nominations.

The snub came just days after the Los Angeles Times published a story in which five women detailed James’ sexually inappropriate and exploitive behaviour.

Despite the accusations, it was speculated that James could still nab an Oscar nomination, but the actor was snubbed from the nominees list.

A source told E! News, “James is disappointed in not getting an Oscar nomination, but also very understanding and somewhat relieved. He doesn’t want it to look like the snub is correlated with the allegations against him.”

“James is trying to get through this rocky patch and hopes everything will blow over appropriately. He is really leaning on his family right now and trying to stay under the radar as much as possible,” the insider added.

The actor did show up to last Sunday’s 2018 SAG Awards, where he was nominated in the Best Actor category.

James won awards for The Disaster Artist at the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards and the Golden Globes.
