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.

Boing!    

Some handler. Why didn't Ryan just ask his director to make some calls to get him on the list. His director won an academy award must give him some clout or there has to be someone at HBO that could have got him on the list. I'm not buying the Clooney story. I think they are helping him save face after the fact. Drop the handler and do things for yourself.

The security men were just doing their job, " If your names not on the list your not getting in" no matter who you are or what job you do, Ryan seemed to be quiet and mannerly during the exchange it was his handler that was obnoxious and arrogant,maybe the handler has been watching too much entourage and thinks he's Ari Gold ?

Looks like your handler PR guy did not do his job to make sure your butt name was on the list. The bouncers were doing their job. The place should of had a PR peron at the font door to clear things up but you can not fault the bouncers for doing the job they were hired for.
