James Franco Hosted a Dinner for Fellow Best Actor Nominees — Golden Globes

  • James Franco accused of sexual misconduct following Golden Globes win

In fact, he went a step ahead and got Wiseau on the stage during his acceptance speech.

"Nineteen years ago he was stuck in traffic and saw a sign for the Golden Globes", said Franco, who then broke into Wiseau's mystery accent as he did in the film. 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.

It was Franco's first Golden Globe for a film role in his third nomination in the movie categories. So, I show them. "He said to his best friend Greg [Sestero, who starred in The Room], 'So what, I'm not invited, '" Franco mimicked in a flawless Wiseau impression, "'I know they don't want me. "I don't wait for Hollywood, I make my own movie".

Do you understand life, James Franco? Hit the link at the bottom of the page for all the goodies and let us know in the comments if Franco is officially canceled or not yet. And, just as it seemed the moment could not have gotten any more awkward, it did. 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. 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. Everybody betrayed you and we're fed up with this world!
