Is he really blaming Vilanch? Did he slip Franco sleeping pills or something?

It’s safe to say that James Franco is a little touchy about his Oscar performance. Or rather, the performance that he slept through / was extremely high during. After the Oscars, he posted a photo on Twitter that read “F*ck the Yale Daily News,” in response to a critic at the Yale Daily News. Wow, you’d think a big celebrity would be able to take a little heat from a college newspaper, but maybe doing 500 projects simultaneously has left him a tad irritated.

Now Franco has taken to Twitter again to blast hard-to-look-at Oscar joke writer Bruce Vilanch. In a recent interview, Vilanch said: “I have to call James Franco and tell him the show’s over … He took a nap and woke up in class.” Obviously, Vilanch was going right for the jugular, actively trying to hurt Franco’s feelings. Franco took the joke in stride, and searched his inner Perez Hilton for an appropriate response. See the photo below, which reads – in word bubbles coming out of Vilanch’s mouth: “James f*cked up the Oscars. Trust me, I know comedy. I mean, come on, I write for Bette Midler.” Zing-zanged.

Franco, a handsome, Academy Award nominated actor, probably could have ignored Vilanch’s relatively harmless joke. After all, besides successfully selling jokes, what else does Bruce Vilanch have? A collection of funny t-shirts and Robin Williams‘ contact information.

If they end up brawling, I want to see Vilanch go all Casey Heynes on whiney Franco and slam him to the ground. Also acceptable: a massive bear hug. (TheWrap)

Someone in the UK could chisel this painting out of the wall, title it “Sour Grapes” and sell it for big bucks. That’s cause this painting is a Banksy about his Oscar loss for Exit Through The Gift Shop. As they say, one Brit’s Oscar loss could be another Brit’s fortune.

Fans of mayhem were hoping Banksy would win Best Documentary, so he would accept the award in a gorilla suit and maybe tag James Franco’s face (that might have sobered him up). Instead, the acclaimed graffiti artist lost and the Oscars were really boring the whole way through. Below, finally, is a response from Banksy on his loss. This drawing was found in Weston, UK, and it’s of an angry little girl holding an Oscar. Banksy might not have a real Oscar, but damn it, he can draw someone who has one.

The girl is the daughter of King’s Speech co-producer Simon Egan, who dropped her dad’s Oscar at a party and it totally broke. Break a dish? That’s a time out Break your father’s Oscar? That’s a time out forever. If the Academy hadn’t replaced it for him, that girl would be sitting in a corner until puberty or possibly marriage. (/Film)

Tonight’s Academy Awards were a cacophony of broken screams from the damned (the losers), and the sound of faux humble half-smiles from the blessed (the winners). Here’s a list of the major winners:

Best Motion Picture of the Year Winner: The King’s Speech (2010) – Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Gareth Unwin

Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role Winner: Colin Firth for The King’s Speech (2010)

Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role Winner: Natalie Portman for Black Swan (2010)

Best Achievement in Directing Winner: Tom Hooper for The King’s Speech (2010)

Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song Winner: Toy Story 3 (2010) – Randy Newman(“We Belong Together”)

Best Achievement in Editing Winner The Social Network (2010) – Kirk Baxter, Angus Wall

Best Achievement in Visual Effects Winner: Inception (2010) – Chris Corbould, Andrew Lockley, Pete Bebb Paul J. Franklin

Best Documentary, Features Winner: Inside Job (2010) – Charles Ferguson, Audrey Marrs

I admit to being disappointed that The Social Network didn’t bring home any major awards, but this will almost certainly be a case of a “loser” being remembered much longer than the winner. When was the last time you watched Shakespeare in Love? (via IMDb)
