-♪ This is
the rhythm of the night ♪ ♪ The night, oh, yeah ♪ [ Cheers and applause ] -Whoo! -First person I have to thank
is the man himself — Tommy Wiseau.
[ Cheers and applause ] Come on up here, Tommy. [ Cheers and applause
intensify ] 19 years ago… [ Chuckling ] -Congratulations. [ Cheers and applause continue ] -Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. [ Laughter ] 19 years ago… he was stuck in traffic
from the Golden Globes. He said to his best friend,
Greg, [ As Wiseau ] “Golden Globes?
So what, I’m not invited. I know they don’t want me,
guy with accent, long hair, So I show them.
I don’t wait for Hollywood. I make my own movie.”
[ Laughter ] [ Normal voice ] I’m very happy to share this moment
with him today. Thank you,
the Hollywood Foreign Press, for all your support
over the years. Also Steve, Daniel, Hugh, Ansel.
You’re all my brothers. You know that.
Thank you. This was billed as a movie
about the best — the making of the best
worst movie ever made, but, in fact, it’s
a story of friendship. This year, I’ve learned from all
my friends and collaborators. My longest friend in
entertainment, Seth Rogen — known him since
“Freaks and Geeks.” Evan Goldberg, James Weaver,
Vince Jolivette, thank you so much.
Alex McAtee. You all taught me
to be a better director, a more responsible person.
Thank you. A24, you had me
since “Spring Break.” New Line, Good Universe,
thank you for all your love. [ Soft music plays ]
Finally, my brother. When I went to NYU, I always said I wanted
my own Coen Brother, someone to collaborate with. I realized this year,
I had my own Franco Brother. [ Laughter ]
I love him more than anything. Thanks to my mother
for giving him to me. [ Cheers and applause ] [ Up-tempo music plays ]
