James Franco was understandably delighted to win the Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy accolade at the Golden Globes on Sunday (7 January) night, but his joy wasn’t shared by film fans on Twitter.
The actor triumphed for his role in ‘The Disaster Artist’, which chronicles the creation of ‘The Room’, a movie largely considered to be one of the worst ever made.

In the television categories, Sterling K Brown made history by becoming the first black actor to win the Best Performance By an Actor in a Television Series, Drama award.
