James Franco's Hollywood Power Lunch After Oscar Snub

James Franco's still getting by with a little help from his friends after Hollywood snubbed him for an Oscar nomination.

We're guessing the sexual assault allegations against Franco also came up over the meal, since it's pretty clear that's what swayed Motion Picture Academy voters.

A friend in need ...
