James Franco will have to wait and see if he's nominated for an Academy Award when the shortlist is revealed on Tuesday morning (25Jan11) - because he's refusing to skip a class at Yale University to watch the live announcement.
Franco, who will co-host next month's (Feb11) Oscars, is among those expected to land a Best Actor nod for his role in grisly survival drama 127 Hours.
But the star has snubbed an invite from the movie's bosses to join them for a breakfast party in New York because he hates missing his lectures at the prestigious school in New Haven, Connecticut.
He tells the Associated Press, "I will be at school. I will be at Yale. Fox Searchlight asked me if I would go to New York to be ready... in case that I was nominated. I said no.
"I'm not gonna miss class to go and presume that I'm going to be nominated, but if you want to bring out a camera crew to Yale and wait and see if I get nominated, I'd be happy to step out of class and say I'm very grateful!"
