Oil bubbling/boiling is not good, you really cooked the engine. Something is causing your car to overheat, and you should have turned the car off immediately. But what's done is done. I suggest you tow the car to a mechanic. Since you got it that HOT, you probably cracked/warped the head or block. You won't know till someone diagnosis it.
