Who Is Ally Sheedy? Actress Slams James Franco After Golden Globes Win

Oscar Cross
January 9, 2018

At this year's ceremony, James Franco won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy for his performance in The Disaster Artist as Tommy Wiseau, and he brought Wiseau, the insane Room maestro himself, up onstage to accept the honor with him.

Here's a handful of people we never expected to see together: Emma Stone, Shirley MacLaine, Dave and James Franco and The Room writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau. "I realized this year I had my own Franco brother". Franco's gesture and the Golden Globes' decision to honor him, many pointed out, felt like an insult for a night that was intended as a protest and opportunity to support survivors and victims. "I'm very happy to share with him this moment today".

James was already making headlines for his freakish speech, which began with the actor denying Tommy Wiseau - the man he portrays in The Disaster Artist - a chance to speak after inviting him up on stage.

Even when he hands James Franco redemption on a silver platter, the auteur behind The Room just can't get the full-blown Hollywood experience he deserves. Franco directed the film and stars in it, and according to cast member Jason Mantzoukas, he directed it in true Tommy style.

Like many of his A-list peers, The Disaster Artist attended the Hollywood award show donning a Time's Up pin in order vocalize his support for the revolutionary movement.

Fast forward to 2018, and both men are a part of the Golden Globes itself. "They make it out like I'm pursuing young women".

"The Disaster Artist", which is based on the book of the same name, chronicles the making of "The Room" and Sestero's real-life friendship with Wiseau. "Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo". "I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky", Franco said. Dave Franco played Wiseau's best friend, Greg, in "The Disaster Artist". No one will ask him about the underage girls.

Franco - who held a dinner for his fellow Best Actor nominees the night before the Golden Globes on Saturday, January 6 - was considered a long shot to beat out Jackman for The Greatest Showman, Battle of the Sexes'Steve Carell, Baby Driver's Ansel Algort and Daniel Kaluuya for Get Out.
