Saturday, January 29, 2011--JAMES FRANCO receives the Outstanding Performance of the Year Award, with Leonard Maltin moderating, Seth Rogan presenting.

In this extended epic, Shuba & Marlon prepare & rehearse all day, only to be passed by and hopes dashed (along with the rest of the media) due to the lateness of the hour. An award ceremony and maneuvering time later--about 127 minutes--the Teen Press scores an unbelievable opportunity to talk with James Franco--in the Green Room, Arlington Theater. Fantastic!
