James Franco Attends SAG Awards, While Aziz Ansari Sits Out

James Franco and Aziz Ansari both won major Golden Globes awards in early January, and both have since faced accusations from women as part of the #MeToo movement.

But on Sunday night, with the two men nominated for Screen Actors Guild Awards, only Mr. Franco showed up.

Mr. Ansari was up for best actor in a comedy series but lost to William H. Macy of “Shameless.” Mr. Ansari was the only contender in his category to skip the awards show in Los Angeles, a major industry event where campaigning for the Oscars is common. A woman accused Mr. Ansari of aggressive sexual coercion in an article on Jan. 13, and the star said in a statement that he had believed his interaction with the woman was “completely consensual.”

Mr. Franco appeared briefly on camera when the nominees in his category were introduced. The crowd politely applauded, as it did with the other nominees. (He lost to Gary Oldman for “Darkest Hour.”)
