James Franco Brings Tommy Wiseau Onstage For 'Disaster Artist' Golden Globes Speech

"The Disaster Artist" is about the making of "The Room", which some critics have deemed the worst movie ever made. He blocked Tommy Wiseau from grabbing the microphone when he took him on stage, and then laughed as he pulled it away! Franco shouted when he accepted the award. The film is based on Greg Sestero's tell-all, non-fiction book of the same name, and chronicles the making of Wiseau's 2003 film, The Room, which Wiseau starred in and directed. But maybe Wiseau was having a little too much fun. "Nineteen years ago he was stuck in traffic from the Golden Globes". "Golden Globz, I don't care, I'm not invited". I know they don't want me - guy with accent, long hair - so I show them. So I show them. "I don't wait for Hollywood, I make my own movie.' I'm very happy to share this moment with him today". He also thanked his mom for giving birth to his brother Dave Franco, who stars as Wiseau's best friend Greg Sestero.

Franco topped Daniel Kaluuya for "Get Out", Steve Carell for "Battle of the Sexes", Ansel Elgort for "Baby Driver", and Hugh Jackman for "The Greatest Showman".

He won a Golden Globe playing the title character in the 2002 biopic "James Dean". Wiseau didn't even get to follow Franco and brother Dave Franco backstage after the award was presented. The younger Franco seemed reluctant at first, but if there's anything he's learned in his 32 years on this earth, it's that whatever his older brother says, goes. I love him more than anything.
