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

Seth Rogen, James Franco open up on sexual harassment, the Sony hack and their friendship

Accepting the best actor in a musical or comedy movie, Franco brought to the stage Wiseau, who wrote, directed and produced the original, but he had to usher him away from the microphone when he immediately tried to take over.

James Franco and Dave Franco attend the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Jan. 7, 2018, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Franco opens his 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". So, I show them.

Earlier in the ceremony, James Franco's friend and actor Seth Rogen praised The Room and remembered the first time he watched it. Finally, he thanked his brother Dave, saying, "I always wanted my own Coen brothers, now we have our own Franco brothers".

Franco scooped the award by beating out Steve Carell for Battle of the Sexes, Ansel Elgort for Baby Driver, Hugh Jackman for The Greatest Showman and Daniel Kaluuya for Get Out.

Wiseau was among the most popular partners for celebrities posing for photos on the red carpet Sunday.

His one previous Oscar nomination came in 2011 for "127 Hours". When Tommy Wiseau's cult classic The Room was first released in 2013, it was given a brief qualifying run for two weeks in a single theater in Los Angeles, in order to gain eligibility for that year's Academy Awards.

"I'm very happy to share this moment with him today", Franco said.

Receiving a somewhat chillier reception was Tonya Harding, the champion figure skater who was the subject of this year's I, Tonya and linked to the 1994 attack on fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan. "Thanks to my mother for giving him to me".
