James Franco Blocks Tommy Wiseau From Finally Getting His Golden Globes Moment

James Franco Blocks Tommy Wiseau From Finally Getting His Golden Globes Moment

Franco, who swore to bring Wiseau with him to the ceremony after he was nominated a year ago, invited the movie's subject up to stand on stage with him as he collected his statue.

In his signature sunglasses, Wiseau immediately reached for the microphone before Franco playfully (?) swatted him away. At the Golden Globes tonight, James Franco took the Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical trophy for his role as Tommy Wiseau, the "multihyphenate" behind The Room - a film generally regarded as one of the worst ever made. But the actor's generosity came to a swift end when Wiseau attempted to steal the mic, Kanye-style, prompting Franco to push Wiseau out of the spotlight that the director has, for so long, insisted he deserves. "Golden Globz, I don't care, I'm not invited". "Whatever you think of I, Tonya, don't have Tonya Harding at awards shows like, 'It's time she had her moment!' It's gross", tweeted entertainment writer Mark Harris.

This is James first win at the Golden Globes. "When I went to NYU, I said I wanted my own Coen brother to create". News' Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the Golden Globes.

Atlanta Robbin' Season , aka Atlanta season two premieres on FX on Thursday, March 1, 2018, at 10:00pm ET/PT. We really tried to just devolve what television was.

Franco, 39, a clear but not overwhelming favorite in the category, beat out fellow nominees Steve Carell for "Battle of the Sexes", Ansel Elgort for "Baby Driver", Hugh Jackman for "The Greatest Showman" and Daniel Kaluuya for "Get Out".

He won a Golden Globe playing the title character in the 2002 biopic "James Dean".

Franco directed and starred in the picture, which tells the story of how Wiseau, an eccentric and enigmatic aspiring filmmaker, made the cult hit, "The Room".
