He runs back to Yale after what might be the worst hosting gig ever!

Apparently the Oscars isn’t the only event James Franco is awful at hosting!

James, 32, threw a high-profile post-Oscars party at Los Angeles’ Supper Club on Feb. 28, to celebrate his co-hosting of the 83rd Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway. But he didn’t even show up to his own party!

James tweeted a picture of himself quickly after the awards, drinking a Bloody Mary with the caption “Goodbye L.A.” A bit later, he posted another snapshot looking out an airplane window, which read, “It was fun! Have to get back to class.”

Yet James had a valid reason to miss Monday morning’s meeting — he’s currently pursuing a doctorate of English at Yale University — and should have stayed in L.A. to celebrate. But he’s probably too embarrassed by his awful performance, as he and Anne were universally panned for their terrible hosting skills.

One person who did manage to make the Moet & Chandon sponsored bash was Lindsay Lohan, who arrived with her brother but quickly made a beeline to the back of the venue. There, she spent the night chain smoking and chatting with Chris Zylka, soon to be seen in The Amazing Spider-Man.

We guess it’s easier to hide at college than face the reviews in L.A.!
