In what is some kind of poetic justice, The Disaster Artist picked up a Golden Globe at yesterday’s awards – albeit it was more for James Franco‘s portrayal of extremely odd bloke Tommy Wiseau that landed him the gong for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.
When Wiseau joined the James and Dave Franco onstage and was gently pushed away by James while trying to reach for the mic to address the crowd, people watching the awards ceremony were pretty unimpressed.
Wiseau has since come out and revealed what he intended to say, if Franco had not taken the mic away from him.
Speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Wiseau says that he wanted to give a little message of hope to the crowd, because if he can somehow turn a mess of a film into something that gets honoured at the Golden Globes then well, anything is possible.

“If a lot of people loved each other, the world would be a better place to live,” Wiseau told the L.A. Times, when asked what he wanted to say.
“See ‘The Room‘, have fun, and enjoy life. The American Dream is alive, and it’s real.”
