Alas, it happened when James Franco won Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for The Disaster Artist at the 2018 Golden Globes.

Franco thanked Tommy and the many people who worked on the film with him, including Seth Rogen and sister-in-law Alison Brie. It was not, alas, nominated for any Oscars or any other award that year - not even a Razzie - and for all of Wiseau's ambitions of acclaimed, James Dean-style acting, his individual performance was never recognized either. The Disaster Artist is a biographical comedy-drama film produced and directed by James Franco.

Franco had promised to bring Tommy Wiseau to the Golden Globes after being nominated for The Disaster Artist, and that's what he did at the awards night. "Golden Globz, I don't care, I'm not invited". I know they don't want me, guy with accent, long hair, so I show them. So, I show them. I make my own movie'.

Franco scooped the award by beating out Steve Carell for Battle of the Sexes, Ansel Elgort for Baby Driver, Hugh Jackman for The Greatest Showman and Daniel Kaluuya for Get Out. "He said to his best friend Greg, 'Golden Globes, so what?"

Tommy is best known for directing the 2003 cult classic The Room, but he's also created and starred in the Hulu series The Neighbors and landed a leading role in the 2017 film Best F (r) iends.

"'I'm very happy to share this moment with him today", Franco added.
