Ryan Seacrest Was Booted from the Oscars Before Show Started

Ryan Seacrest has been hosting the Oscars red carpet for the past 15 years, but that doesn’t mean he gets to stay and watch the show!

The 44-year-old television personality opened up about being booted from the Oscars during an interview on The Tonight Show on Friday (March 1) in New York City.

Ryan hosted both E! and ABC’s red carpet shows this year and he got to go inside the Dolby Theatre right before the show started for the first time.

“I thought, This is cool, I’m going to see the Oscars with all the movie stars,” Ryan said. “I look back for my seat and the ushers and stage managers come and say, Mr. Seacrest, your car is ready. We don’t have a ticket for you. They sent me home to watch it on television like everybody else. Next thing you know I’m on Hollywood Boulevard going away from the Oscars.”
