Oscars 2011: James Franco tweets behind the scenes photos and videos in real time
He even created a hashtag for it -- #OscarsRealTime
A lot of the posts are pretty goofy, but some of his backstage videos are actually cool. One of our favorite vids from the night is his last words before taking the stage.
"It might be bad," he tells the camera. Hey, at least he's covering his bases.
He also shoots Anne Hathaway telling all the nominees that there are snacks underneath their seats following the award show. Franco then shouts out to Javier Bardem, "Eat up, Javier." Not to mention the backstage hand massage he receives from his co-host.
Among some of the pictures posted, he and Hathaway took a brief photo op with presenter Oprah Winfrey.
