Nearly 15 years after the release of cult hit The Room, director/producer/star Tommy Wiseau will finally walk the red carpet at the Golden Globes.
Often referred to as 'the Citizen Kane of bad movies', the film has become such a phenomenon that a new film based on the making of it scored two nominations.
James Franco's The Disaster Artist landed nods for Best Film (comedy/musical) and Best Actor (comedy/musical) for his role as Wiseau.
"I think [taking Wiseau to the ceremony] is what everyone wants and what everyone needs," Franco told the Hollywood Reporter.
Franco said Wiseau was excited to learn of the nominations and responded with suitably enigmatic text messages.
"He sent some texts. He says, 'Whoah what a day.' And he said, 'Can you imagine. What Next?'
"And then the final one, which I really don't understand: 'We don't need panic cinema. We might buy cinema in Paris ha ha ha.' I don't know what that means."
The Room is a bizarre drama, centring on a love triangle between a man, his fiancé and his best friend.
It had a reported budget of US$6 million and initially pulled in less than US$1800 at the box office, after being slammed by critics as "the worst movie of all time".
Over the years since it was first released, it has established a cult following that attracts sold-out special screenings all around the world, including New Zealand.
The 2018 Golden Globe winners will be announced at a ceremony in Los Angeles on January 7 (local time).
