Seth Rogen, Franco's co-star on TV's "Freaks and Geeks," and Sam Raimi, who directed him in 'Oz' were among the speakers at the ceremony.
In an emotional speech, the grateful actor thanked his mother and added, "I wish that I could put a bunch of names on this star because this is collaborative business, not just making the movies, the people behind-the-scenes, the people that have been there for me all the way through. If I could, I'd put all your names on there."
