If you know anything about the hilarious cult flick, The Room and its enigmatic lead actor/writer/director/producer, Tommy Wiseau, you know that Wiseau has always suffered from epic-sized delusions of grandeur.
Which is why it was no surprise that when actor James Franco invited Wiseau up on stage with him, as he received the Golden Globe for his portrayal of Tommy in The Disaster Artist, hilarity ensued.
And Twitter was torn about it all.
I loved when James Franco was giving his speech and tommy wiseau went to grab the mic hahahhaha— angela ☪ (@ang_cap) January 8, 2018
I am extremely uncomfortable with James Franco cutting off Tommy Wiseau. You owe him everything, dude.— Emily Yoshida (@emilyyoshida) January 8, 2018
James Franco is trash. He bought his bro and Tommy Wiseau on stage merely to posture as to what a great guy he was and push the 'bromance' angle to further his own Oscar campaign. Him pushing Wiseau (WITHOUT WHOM HE'D HAVE NO AWARD) away from the mic was dick move. #GoldenGlobes— Film Ratings Nerd (@emmabung) January 8, 2018
Also it feels thematically contradictory to the disaster artist for Franco to not let Wiseau speak? Like the point of the movie was that everyone deserves to be heard...— Justin Horowitz (@childvoodoo5) January 8, 2018
From now on giving someone the Heisman is now known as giving Wiseau the Franco.— Oliver Jones (@oliverjones) January 8, 2018
Why? The Golden Globe went to James Franco. Not to the film.— Scott Sullivan (@ScottSullivanTV) January 8, 2018
I feel like if he didn’t push Tommy’s hand away, Tommy would’ve ended up doing his speech😂. Plus he played Tommy, so makes sense he only asked him. Also, I doubt Greg wanted to be onstage since he’s such a wallflower.— Alexandria Vaun (@AlexandriaVaun) January 8, 2018
And Tommy is pretty damn unpredictable. James did him a favor lol.— アブラハム (@KillAbraham) January 8, 2018
