James Franco scored his second Golden Globe win Sunday night, winning best actor in a comedy or musical for "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. "I realized this year I had my own Franco brother".
He won a Golden Globe in 2002 playing the title character in the biopic "James Dean". "After my profile of Franco was published, some people reached out to tell me about encounters with him".
Franco, 39, previously won a Golden Globe for best actor in a miniseries or motion picture for television in 2002 for "James Dean". That was provided, appropriately enough, by James Franco, Tommy Wiseau and the inside-out making-of tale "The Disaster Artist".
Upon accepting the award, Franco called Wiseau up to the stage to join him. I know they don't want me, guy with accent, long hair, so I show them. After giving us the real lowdown about The Room's history, he and Sestro then confess that they've seen Franco's film-about-their-film multiple times, and moreover, that its behind-the-scenes portrait is 99 percent accurate. He said to his best friend Greg [Sestero], 'The Golden Globes? "I won the the award, I'm talking", laughed another.

Two years ago, he took a veteran team and led them to 24 wins in a row, which is an wonderful accomplishment. This is hardly LaVar's first time taking shots at Luke and the coaching staff.
Wiseau had high hopes for The Room when he released it in 2003, but the "Citizen Kane of bad movies" never made it to an awards show.
Franco brought Wiseau onstage along with his brother Dave Franco, who co-stars in the film.
Franco spoke about Wiseau's inspiration: "I won't wait for Hollywood, I'll make my own movie", Franco quoted Wiseau as saying 19 years ago. And, just as it seemed the moment could not have gotten any more awkward, it did.
