James Franco denies "The Room" writer, director and star a chance to speak while accepting award for "The Disaster Artist."
James Franco honored his promise to bring Wiseau as his guest to the award show and even brought him on stage after winning a Globe for his portrayal of the eccentric cult film figure in "The Disaster Artist." Wiseau went straight for the mic when he got on stage, but Franco stopped the writer, director and star of "The Room" from getting a single word out.
But after the awkward moment, which shot Wiseau's name to the top of the Twitter trends Sunday night, he did tweet this: "If a lot of people love each other, the world will be a better place to live."
He then told The L.A. Times that is indeed what he was planning to say before Franco pushed him away.
"See 'The Room,' have fun, and enjoy life. The American Dream is alive, and it’s real," he added while talking to the Times.
Watch one of the most memorable moments of the evening unfold below if you missed it:
