Sestero was on hand at the show as well but didn't take the stage.

Franco, 39, previously won a Golden Globe for best actor in a miniseries or motion picture for television in 2002 for "James Dean". At the 2018 Golden Globes, Wiseau got to have his moment in the sun - all thanks to James Franco, who brought Wiseau's story to life in the The Disaster Artist and took home the award for best actor in a comedy or musical. With the music playing, he exited stage right along with the brothers Franco. Strangely, though, Franco didn't let the man who was the entire reason for the movie do any of the talking.

Franco, who swore to bring Wiseau with him to the ceremony after he was nominated a year ago, invited the movie's subject up to stand on stage with him as he collected his statue. The film stars brothers James and Dave Franco as Wiseau and Greg Sestero, alongside a star-studded cast, which includes James' good friend Seth Rogen [who also produced], his sister-in-law Alison Brie [Dave Franco's wife], Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson, and Jacki Weaver.

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.

Franco brought Wiseau onstage along with his brother Dave Franco, who co-stars in the film.

Franco started his speech by explaning how The Room is tied to Globes history.
