Palo Alto native James Franco wins best actor Golden Globe

Palo Alto native James Franco wins best actor Golden Globe

During his acceptance speech, Franco pulled out his Wiseau impersonation again, joking that Wiseau once was stuck in traffic during the Golden Globes and vowed to make his own movie.

Franco had just won a lead actor Golden Globe for playing Wiseau in "Disaster," and made sure his fellow writer/director was up on stage with him as he began his speech. Franco directed the film and stars in it, and according to cast member Jason Mantzoukas, he directed it in true Tommy style.

Oh hi, Golden Globes stage.

The 39-year-old won the Best Actor In A Comedy Or Musical award for his role in The Disaster Artist, in which he plays director of so-bad-it's-good cult classic The Room, Tommy Wiseau. "I realized this year I had my own Franco brother".

Wiseau, along with Room co-star and line producer Greg Sestero, also appeared on the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday night, and promoted The Room in an interview with Variety.

Egyptian soccer star Mohamed Salah named African Player of the Year
The club of the year award went to FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2017 participants Wydad Casablanca. Salah's victory capped a clean sweep of the three main African football awards for Egypt .

As the camera panned across the room, catching Jackman looking slightly befuddled (and instantly creating a social media meme), Franco named some other friends, telling them they "taught me to be a better director, a more responsible person".

Absolutely nobody wanted Tommy Wiseau cast in any movie whatsoever and he never got any calls back.

Fast forward to 2018, and both men are a part of the Golden Globes itself.

"Only my good friend James Franco is weird enough to think that showing the story of the people who made this movie would be the best way to let every outsider who has ever been rejected know that their dream can in fact come true", Rogen continued. "Said too much. Nite love ya", The Breakfast Club alum wrote. Wiseau then came onstage to surprised applause and tried to steal the mic, with Franco quickly stopping him with a nervous laugh. We'll just have to wait and see on how many awards The Disaster Artist gets nominated in.

    If Chelsea were trying to win, we sure weren't reflecting that attitude on the pitch, especially in a beyond dire first half. My idea is to continue like the past and make rotations. "It was a pity, but [we had] great commitment from our players".
