James Franco and Tommy Wiseau: Winning Best Actor for the Worst Movie

  • Greg Sestero and Tommy Wiseau in The Room

It was not, alas, nominated for any Oscars or any other award that year - not even a Razzie - and for all of Wiseau's ambitions of acclaimed, James Dean-style acting, his individual performance was never recognized either.

Tommy Wiseau joins James Franco on stage at the 2018 Golden Globes as he accepts his award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. But it was Mr. Wiseau who stole the show. Unlike most stars, who typically take the stage solo, Franco brought Wiseau and his brother (and co-star) Dave Franco up to the stage with him. "Golden Globz, I don't care, I'm not invited". I know they don't want me, guy with accent, long hair. "I don't wait for Hollywood, I make my own movie!"

Franco was nominated alongside Daniel Kaluuya for Get Out, Steve Carrell for Battle of the Sexes, Ansel Elgort for Baby Driver, and Hugh Jackman for The Greatest Showman.

Franco made the big toast of the night, but all of the men went around the room to address the group, Hammer added when speaking to Seacrest on the red carpet.

There was also a brutal camera pan over to Greg Sestero, who plays the infamous Mark in "The Room" ― the role Dave Franco plays in "The Disaster Artist".

"I'm very happy to share this moment with him today", Franco said. "I realized this year I have my own Franco brother". "Tonya Harding is here tonight, and I'd like to thank her for sharing her story with [screenwriter] Steven [Rogers] and allowing him to tell every side of the story", Janney said.
