Sofia Vergara had to miss the Oscars because of the flu, and while there were rumors going around that she was hospitalized for an illness, the Colombian actress had a pretty good excuse for skipping out on the ceremony.

“She came down with a nasty case of flu and had to cancel all plans for Oscar weekend,” a source said

Vergara, 40, confirmed her illness over Twitter.

“Watching the Oscars at home so I don’t give everyone the flu haha!” she tweeted, along with a photo of herself relaxing in bed.

Oscar watchers and “Modern Family” fans missed seeing the beautiful actress on the red carpet Sunday.

“Sofia is fine and there is nothing to worry about,” another source stated.

Vergara was reportedly expected to walk the red carpet at the prestigious awards ceremony in Los Angeles, and later attend Madonna’s party.
