Get Out may have earned four Oscar nominations, but apparently, that's not enough for one of its actors to cop an invite to the ceremony.

Lil Rel Howery, who played the unforgettable TSA agent Rod Williams, revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he didn't even get an invite to the event.

“We called and they’re looking for my ticket and they’re like ‘uh, you’re not in the first group’!" Howery said, explaining how he wasn't deemed important enough to be given a ticket.

Thankfully, Jimmy Kimmel has an insider connection. “Listen, I’ll get you in don’t worry – I’m the host of it. You had a big part in that movie. It’s not like you had a little scene,” the host said.

However, if Howery doesn't manage to finesse a ticket, Howery did get an invite to JAY-Z's Oscars brunch, so he's not doing too bad.
