Tommy Wiseau finally gets his Golden Globe moment … kind of

There had to be at least a few whoops of delight emanating from Palo Alto on Sunday night as hometown hero James Franco captured a Golden Globe for best performance by an actor in a motion picture, comedy or musical. Franco wouldn't let the famously erratic Wiseau speak at the podium, but Franco explained that the honor is fitting since 19 years ago Wiseau was stuck in traffic due to the Golden Globes when he decided, "Who cares, I was not invited anyway, I will make my own movie".

Upon accepting the award, Franco called Wiseau up to the stage to join him. After hitting the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday with his younger brother Dave, the actor took home the award for best actor in a musical or comedy for his performance in The Disaster Artist.

"Come on up here, Tommy", Franco summoned the long-haired Wiseau from the stage. I know they don't want me, guy with accent, long hair, so I show them.

The pair got married on 11 December 2017 in Italy and their lavish wedding reception took place on 26 December, 2017 in Mumbai . Like a dutiful wife, Anushka cheered her hubby on as he went all padded up into the field on the first day of the Test match.

Franco broke bread with Tom Hanks, Gary Oldman, Sam Rockwell, Timothee Chalamet, Steve Carell, Richard Jenkins, Hugh Jackman, Ansel Elgort and Daniel Kaluuya.

Here's a handful of people we never expected to see together: Emma Stone, Shirley MacLaine, Dave and James Franco and The Room writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau.

His one previous Oscar nomination came in 2011 for "127 Hours". "He said to his best friend Greg [Sestero, who starred in The Room], 'So what, I'm not invited, '" Franco mimicked in a ideal Wiseau impression, "'I know they don't want me. Wiseau directed and starred in the 2003 film. "I realized I had a Franco brother".
