Paris Hilton has reportedly been banned from the Oscars.
The hotel heiress - whose latest movie The Hottie and the Nottie grossed just $9 000 at the US box office in its opening weekend - was devastated after being told she couldn't attend the prestigious event on Sunday night.
A source said: "She cried hot, salty tears when she was banned from the Oscars. She's desperate to be taken seriously as an actress and hoped she would be able to network with film executives."
Paris - who infamously starred in home video sex-tape One Night in Paris - had even splashed out $3.9m on a designer dress for the ceremony at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre.
'The Simple Life star is now considering going to one of the many after-show parties but may have to wear a disguise.
A source added to Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "She's tempted to go to the parties afterwards but might wear her trademark wig to save her dignity."
