One Hailee Steinfeld autograph seeker got an ambulance ride from LAX, but video of the incident makes it seem like he might deserve an Oscar.

Our photog was on the scene as Hailee walked to her car, and the autograph seeker persistently buzzed around her. The dude desperately wanted her Jane Hancock, but Hailee's handler wasn't having it and did get a little physical.

We caught the whole thing on video, and while it didn't seem like mortal combat -- the guy ended up needing medical assistance.

The handler had to talk to cops, and the autograph seeker was writhing in pain in the ambulance.

We don't know if anyone's faking here. We're just saying watch the video ...
