While Mariah Carey's bodycon black dress had tongues wagging on the red carpet, it was James Franco that was hot topic of conversation inside The Beverly Hilton for the 75th Golden Globe Awards.

As James launched into his acceptant speech for his part in The Disaster Artist, he welcomed onto the stage Tommy Wiseau - the director whom the film is based on.

Wiseau was there in the audience, and got to go on stage for Franco's win. Then using the director's one-of-a-kind accent (which Mr. Wiseau has said is Cajun but that most would call Eastern European), Mr. Franco read out a quote from Mr. Wiseau: "Golden Globes, so what, I'm not invited".

Ronan has another reason to rejoice as her film Lady Bird has won the Best Film in a Musical or Comedy.

Ally isn't the only person who criticized James' appearance at the Golden Globes.

While one wrote: 'Hugh Jackman's reaction to James Franco is everything. he was robbed.#GoldenGlobes'.

Wiseau had high hopes for The Room when he released it in 2003, but the "Citizen Kane of bad movies" never made it to an awards show.

This second tweet gave a bit more insight into the issue she had with Franco being admitted into the awards show, with the Me Too hashtag hinting that she might be accusing Franco, and/or possibly Slater, of sexual harassment or assault.

The Disaster Artist is positioned as a major Oscar contender, so during the rest of awards season, Franco will likely have to address these claims publically.

"Disaster" is about the making of "The Room", a low-budget thriller directed by and starring Wiseau.

Thanks to James Franco's movie, the two are now living the Hollywood dream that they always wanted almost two decades ago. Here we are 15 years later, so I thought it was a nice moment to have him up there'.

Franco's remarks were as much an acceptance speech for Wiseau as they were for Franco himself.
