The two actors were nominated in the 'Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy' category for their roles in The Disaster Artist and The Greatest Showman respectively.

Franco was announced as the winner, with his speech seeing him bring Tommy Wiseau - who he played in The Disaster Artist - up on stage. However, Twitter users were quick to pick up on the 49-year-old Australian looking less than impressed as he watched from the gallery.

Others pointed out that his response was similar to the episode of Friends where Joey Tribbiani fails to pick up a 'Soapie' award.

During his acceptance speech Franco, 39, thanked his family and friends, including his brother Dave Franco.

He said: “Finally my brother, when I went to NYU I always said I wanted my own Coen brother, someone to collaborate with.

“I realise this year I had my own Franco brother. I love him more than anything. Thanks to my mother for giving him to me.”
