James Franco pretty much bombed when he hosted the Oscars last month, but let’s not forget he is good at a few things.  Like multitasking, looking good and using Twitter to express his feelings.

So what did James do this time? Well, Oscar writer Bruce Vilanch spoke with NY Mag’s Vulture blog yesterday and basically said James failed at his hosting duties. Because, well, he did, and Bruce was being nice when he said:

“I don’t think he realized how big a deal it is to do it until he was actually confronted with it. I think he thought he would kind of … I don’t know what he thought. I thought maybe it was a performance-art prank, and then I realized he sincerely wanted to do it. But it’s outside of those guys’ comfort zones. The only people who know how to host those shows are people who get up onstage every night and say, ‘Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. A funny thing happened … ‘ Or people like Bette [Midler] who get up and sing all night and tell stories.”

Apparently, James wasn’t too happy about Bruce’s comments. And since he thinks Twitter is always the best channel of communication, he tweeted: “Bruce, he let me down” along with a graffitied photo of the two at the Oscars.

The tweet has since been deleted, reposted and, I believe, deleted again. This isn’t the first time James released his anger on an unsuspecting Twitterverse. Last month when the Yale Daily News complained about his Twitter feed, he posted a graffitied photo of himself with the message “Fuck the Yale Daily News.”

I’m probably James’ biggest fan, but this is pretty much the behavior of a 5-year-old, no? Even so, I love me some drama to go along with cute cat photos and even cuter close-ups. Let’s face it, James really can do no wrong.

    James may have failed (who cares as I watch the Oscars to see movie stars win and lose Oscars) but Bette Midler? Really?
