Golden Globes: What Tommy Wiseau Wanted to Say on Stage During James Franco’s Speech

Wiseau didn’t get a chance to speak while Franco gave his acceptance speech for winning Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical

James Franco stopped Tommy Wiseau from having his moment on stage at the 2018 Golden Globes, which left everyone asking: What epic wisdom was he going to share with the world?

Wiseau told the Los Angeles Times that his message would have been simple: “If a lot of people loved each other, the world would be a better place to live.”

Lastly, he would have wanted to say, “See ‘The Room,’ have fun, and enjoy life. The American Dream is alive, and it’s real.”

The first person James Franco thanked when he got to the microphone to give his acceptance speech for winning Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical was Wiseau, who made and starred in the infamously bad film “The Room,” and whom Franco portrayed in “The Disaster Artist.”

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.

Franco’s speech ended up getting cut off before he could hand the microphone over to Wiseau — but Twitter loved the fact that “The Room” star tried to grab it from Franco. Some were disappointed that Wiseau didn’t get a chance to speak.

Wiseau ended up tweeting his statement.
