What Tommy Wiseau Wanted to Say Before James Franco Stopped Him

12 January 2018

Franco won a Best Actor award for portraying the enigmatic Wiseau, while Allison Janney, who plays Harding's mother inI, Tonya, nabbed the Supporting Actress honor.

Franco opened his rambling speech by quoting Wiseau's reference to the Golden Globes two decades ago, and his lack of an invite to the show as a motivation to make "The Room".

"The first person I have to thank is the man himself, Tommy Wiseau", Franco said as Wiseau made his way to the stage.

Their wishes were fulfilled when Wiseau told the LA Times that it would have been, "If a lot of people loved each other, the world would be a better place to live".

With the time up, Wiseau had to exit the stage without uttering a single word. Franco's brother Dave, who co-starred in the film, also appeared onstage to accept the award.

"I'll never stop laughing at Franco shoving Wiseau away from the mic", another Twitter user wrote. When Wiseau went for the microphone, Franco promptly stopped him.

Instead, he quoted Wiseau at the event, saying, "Golden Globes, so what?" The American Dream is alive, and it's real.

Needless to say, everyone (including Seth Rogen) was wondering just what The Room star would have said had he gotten the chance.

Following the 2018 Golden Globes, you may have noticed a bit of an uproar on social media regarding the way James Franco handled his acceptance speech for The Disaster Artist.

So just what would Wiseau have said, given his moment in the spotlight? He has a higher profile in Hollywood than ever, and on Wednesday, he's getting what he's waited his whole life for with a nationwide, one-day release of The Room in 600 theaters. I make my own movie.

During the award ceremony, actress Ally Sheedy, best known for her role in the coming-of-age comedy-drama film The Breakfast Club, also shared a series of cryptic tweets questioning Franco's presence at the event.
