Paris Hilton's Oscar ban
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 (24.02.08).
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 £2 million 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."
However, one post-awards bash she won't be going to is the Vanity Fair event.
The magazine has decided to scrap its annual Oscar party in support of the recent Hollywood writers' strike.
The Vanity Fair party is considered the most glamorous and exclusive post-Oscars event, with a guest list strictly reserved for A-list stars and VIPs.
US TV show 'Entertainment Weekly' have also cancelled their post-Oscar bash.
