After having his efforts thwarted by James Franco, ‘The Room’ star Tommy Wiseau has revealed the speech he hoped to make at this year’s Golden Globes.

James was named Best Actor In A Comedy Or Musical during Sunday night’s (7 January) ceremony, for his portrayal of Tommy in ‘The Disaster Artist’ - a film chronicling the making of ‘The Room’, frequently cited as the worst movie of all time.

Speaking to reporters from the Los Angeles Times about what he’d planned to say, Tommy stated: “If a lot of people loved each other, the world would be a better place to live.”

Originally debuted in 2003, independent film ‘The Room’ almost disappeared without a trace after its initial release, but its questionable content has since elevated it to cult status, culminating in ‘The Disaster Artist’ last year.

During the ceremony, a number of winning actresses took the opportunity to speak out about gender inequality, including ‘Big Little Lies’ stars Laura Dern and Nicole Kidman.

It was Oprah Winfrey whose speech wound up stealing the show, though, as she earned a standing ovation from the entire auditorium upon collecting her Lifetime Achievement award.
