Before the Oscar nominations, James Franco insisted that he wouldn’t skip class at Yale University to watch the live announcement.
James was expected to get a nomination, but didn’t want to miss out on lectures at the prestigious school.
“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.” he told the Associated Press.
“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!”
