Adjust Comment Print

Nothing could more accurately describe the moment Tommy Wiseau stormed the Golden Globes stage after James Franco won Best Actor for portraying the oddball filmmaker in The Disaster Artist. 'Cause if so, they may be onto something here.

"[Harding] was overwhelmed by being in a room like that", Janney told ET's Kevin Frazier backstage after winning her award. On defense, Franco even went so far as to push Wiseau back to the sidelines with a shutdown move that quickly became one of the biggest memes of the night.

'Why is a man hosting? "Said too much. Nite love ya #goldenglobes", according to screenshots captured by The Cut. "Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo", Sheedy added. Sheedy featured in the 2014 Broadway production The Long Shrift, which was directed by Franco.

"The Room", the best worst movie ever made, is finally getting the nationwide release its eccentric creator and star Tommy Wiseau imagined when he premiered the film 14 years ago.

The film not only earned Franco critical acclaim, he's been honored with Best Actor nominations for the upcoming Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Critics Choice Movie Awards and the Film Independent Spirit Awards.

She also alleged that Franco offered speaking roles to actresses only if they stripped down.

Another woman, Violet Paley, who retweeted Tither-Kaplan's post, shared one of her own, which claimed that Franco sexually harassed her. "Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business", the actress revealed in a series of since-deleted tweets.

So we put it to The Disaster Artist's screenwriting duo, Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (500 Days of Summer, The Spectacular Now) at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards (watch above). On stage, he called up Tommy Wiseau, who was the real-life inspiration for the film.
