James Franco Bombs as Oscar Host, Bails on His Own After-Party

Oscar co-host James Franco was painful to watch as he stood stiff on stage at the 2011 83rd Academy Awards. Despite wearing his signature smile, Franco, 32, appeared disinterested and aloof.

Franco immediately headed to NYC following the awards ceremony and tweeted as he sipped a Bloody Mary while still in his tux, “Goodbye L.A. It was fun! Time to head back to class.”

On board to New York, Franco left behind the L.A. Supper Club after-party perhaps lamenting just what had transpired hours before – on stage in front of millions of people and Hollywood’s most distinguished.

To Franco’s disinterest, The Supper Club was reported to be a “bust” anyway.
