Golden Globes 2018: James Franco wins Best Actor for The Disaster Artist

Golden Globes 2018: James Franco wins Best Actor for The Disaster Artist

The movement was in response to the string of allegations against major Hollywood figures - most notably producer Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey.

The "127 hours" star took home the Golden Globe for "Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy" for his performance as Tommy Wiseau in "The Disaster Artist".

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". Mr. Franco invited the director, making his first appearance at the Globes, up to the stage with him.

James Franco scored his second Golden Globe win Sunday night, winning best actor in a comedy or musical for "The Disaster Artist".

"Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes, remember a few weeks ago when you told me the full nudity you had me do in two of your movies for $100/day wasn't exploitative because I signed a contract to do it?" I love him more than anything.

"James Franco pushing Tommy Wiseau from the microphone was by far my favourite part, god knows what he would've said", wooed one.

The move nearly backfired when Wiseau grabbed the microphone, but James Franco quickly took it back. In fact, he went a step ahead and got Wiseau on the stage during his acceptance speech.

Wiseau had high hopes for The Room when he released it in 2003, but the "Citizen Kane of bad movies" never made it to an awards show. I don't wait for Hollywood.

In case you forgot, while starring in Of Mice and Men, Franco allegedly offered to rent a room so that he could spend quality time with the "almost" 18-year-old. Wiseau then came onstage to surprised applause and tried to steal the mic, with Franco quickly stopping him with a nervous laugh.

This final tweet, which was deleted just like the others, insinuates that the "Disaster Artist" actor was a big reason for why Sheedy doesn't spend much time working in the entertainment industry anymore.
