James Franco, 39, vowed that he would bring Tommy Wiseau, 62, to the 2018 Golden Globes on January 7, after being nominated for The Disaster Artist - A film based on a true story, in which Franco directed and plays Wiseau.

Strangely, though, Franco didn't let the man who was the entire reason for the movie do any of the talking. "Whatever you think of I, Tonya, don't have Tonya Harding at awards shows like, 'It's time she had her moment!' It's gross", tweeted entertainment writer Mark Harris. "I don't wait for them, I make my own movie, '" Franco said.

To raucous applause, Franco told Wiseau to join him on the stage for the honors, but when The Room director tried to grab the mic, Franco gave him a gentle, giggly shove (and yes, there's already a GIF for it). "Thanks to my mother for giving him to me".
