  • Greg Sestero and Tommy Wiseau in The Room

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.
