Tommy Wiseau finally gets his Golden Globe moment … kind of

  • James Franco brings Tommy Wiseau to the Golden Globes stage after win

Franco said in his speech that 19 years ago Wiseau "was stuck in traffic from the Golden Globes".

Hugh Jackman just couldn't hide the look on his face when James Franco won best actor in a motion picture at the 2018 Golden Globes. And, Franco made sure not to exit the stage without creating a viral moment.

Wiseau darted out of his chair, ran across the room, and leapt up to the stage with his long, dyed-black hair and sunglasses looking, as Franco's friend and co-star Seth Rogen described him earlier in the show, "like Johnny Depp went to a costume party dressed as a vampire". Watch the wild moment, below!

Franco also talked about longing to be a Coen brother as a kid, and thanked Dave for being his "very own Franco brother". But it was Mr. Wiseau who stole the show. Then using the director's one-of-a-kind accent (which Mr. Wiseau has said is Cajun but that most would call Eastern European), Mr. Franco read out a quote from Mr. Wiseau: "Golden Globes, so what, I'm not invited". Despite Sunset Strip billboards - which had his Wiseau's personal phone number on them - it was an unmitigated disaster that turned into a cult sensation that still plays at midnight shows.

Dimitrov held his serve to go to 5-4 and then broke Edmund to seal the win 6-3, 6-7 (3/7), 6-4. I'm hitting the ball well and I'm serving really well.

"The Disaster Artist", which is based on the book of the same name, chronicles the making of "The Room" and Sestero's real-life friendship with Wiseau.

It was Franco's first Golden Globe for a film role in his third nomination in the movie categories.
