    But the plan apparently backfired, and instead of sailing to the stage, the paper planes plummeted into the audience below. About 20 minutes later, security arrived and asked Reed to leave the theater.

    Per The Hollywood Reporter, the producer was eventually allowed back inside 10 minutes later following a brief protest.

    Looks like Reed learned that hard way that there are no friendly skies in Oscarland!
