James Franco reportedly skipped his own Oscar bash after being slammed for his awards show hosting skills.

The '127 Hours' star - who received a critical drubbing for his performance alongside Anne Hathaway at last night's (27.02.11) show - had planned to throw an exclusive party at the Supper Club after the ceremony but instead left Los Angeles straight away.

A source revealed while some stars - including Seth Rogen, Kevin Spacey and actors from TV show '90210' were all in attendance the party was a "bust".

However James, 32, - who is studying at both Yale and New York Universities - took to his twitter account to explain his absence, claiming he had to return to classes.

He wrote: "Goodbye L.A.. It was fun! Time to head back to class."

Industry bible The Hollywood Reporter had slammed the star as seeming "distant" and "uninterested" in proceedings at the event at the Kodak Theatre last night.

Writer Tim Franco said: "Anne Hathaway at least tried to sing and dance and preen along to the goings on, but Franco seemed distant, uninterested and content to keep his Cheshire-cat-meets-smug smile on display throughout.

"What was the point, Academy? What did Franco bring to the table? His appearance played more like one of his performance art pieces than an actual attempt to be host.

"A bad and risky idea, letting two actors host, proved out in spectacularly unwatchable fashion on the biggest of all nights for the film world."
