11:40 AM PT -- Sources connected to the party tell TMZ ... Kwanten was invited to the party as a guest of George Clooney and his GF Stacy Keibler ... and SHOULD have been on the list.

We're told party organizers are trying to find out how Kwanten's name was left off the list ... but it's clear the actor wasn't trying to crash the party uninvited.

TV stars get no respect on Oscar night ... just ask "True Blood" star Ryan Kwanten ... who was embarrassingly REJECTED at the door of a huge Academy Awards party ... and TMZ caught the whole thing on tape.

Kwanten -- sporting a fancy bow tie -- arrived to Craig's in Hollywood with a handler last night ... when they came face-to-face with the security team guarding the front door.

Kwanten and his buddy insisted they were personally invited by Craig himself ... but the bouncer wasn't buyin' it.

Kwanten's handler even whipped out his cell phone and got someone important on the phone to vouch for him ... but when he gave the phone to the bouncer, the security guy STILL wouldn't let him in.

Eventually, Kwanten and his buddy took the note and walked away ... but not before the handler asked the bouncer which company he worked for ... insinuating that heads would ROLL over the rejection.

Don't worry Ryan ... at least you're still pretty.

Ouch - that's embarrassing! I understand trying to get in by calling whomever needs to give the okay. (It's plausible that Craig saw him and was like "hey you have got to come to my party" then forgot to put him on the list) But it isn't okay to try to get someone in trouble who is doing their job and obviously doing a GREAT job to boot. His function is to make sure you are on the list... You aren't... Drive on.

A real professional would not have walked up with the celebrity yet approached him alone and pulled him aside to speak in private. Once the security knew the cameras where on and the publicist made the smooth comment his night was over regardless. Now the celeb looks like an a$$ while the publicist goes back into oblivion of no one knowing now caring who he is.

I know how he feels as I was once rejected from entering a strip joint in Vegas because I had a suit and tie on.

At around 2:20, can someone please tell me the name the handler called the bouncer (while speaking on the phone)?
Smooth Biggie? Smooth Diggity? I don't get it.
