Palo Alto native James Franco wins best actor Golden Globe

James Franco Wins Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy James Franco wins the 2018 Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical
Rosie Leonard | 08 January, 2018, 06:08

The award is for his portrayal of independent filmmaker and actor Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist It's a semi-fictional retelling of the production of Wiseau's 2003 film The Room, popularly known as "the worst movie ever made".

Even though James Franco brought Tommy Wiseau to the Golden Globes on Sunday night, he stopped short of letting the cult icon grab the mic. Wiseau then came onstage to surprised applause and tried to steal the mic, with Franco quickly stopping him with a nervous laugh.

Franco's remarks were as much an acceptance speech for Wiseau as they were for Franco himself.

You never know what's going to happen at the Golden Globes, or who's going to show up. So, I show them. "I don't wait for Hollywood, I make my own movie!"

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.

Franco made the big toast of the night, but all of the men went around the room to address the group, Hammer added when speaking to Seacrest on the red carpet.

He won a Golden Globe playing the title character in the 2002 biopic "James Dean". "I wasn't invited".I'm very happy to share this moment with him today". Franco takes on the role of the eccentric director/star/producer Tommy Wiseau, who imagined the original film's lead to be the ultimate tortured manly man man protagonist in the vein of Marlon Brando's roles in his early years. "I realized this year I have my own Franco brother".
