Man arrested for allegedly stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar


Frances McDormand's Best Actress Oscar award was stolen at an after-party in Hollywood Sunday night, KABC-TV in Los Angeles has learned.

"Security at the Governors Ball is looking for this guy, who grabbed Frances McDormand's Oscar and ran out with it", said New York Times writer Cara Buckley, who was at the event and live-tweeted the drama.

Bryant posted a video of himself in a tuxedo at the event holding an Oscar statuette and telling other guests he was a victor.

Los Angeles police said a photographer who didn't recognize Bryant as an Oscar victor helped nab the suspected thief. "Sup babies, look, my team got this tonight".

The star (60) picked up the coveted gong for her towering performance as a grieving mother in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Earlier in the ceremony Ashley Judd, Annabella Sciorra, and Salma Hayek took to the stage to shine a light on these campaigns.

After McDormand was reunited with her trophy, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expressed relief. "The Oscar was returned to the recipient".

Terry Bryant pictured with Beyonce in 2009. The 2-time Academy victor McDormand bagged one at Oscars 2018 for her commendable performance in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". McDormand's rep Simon Halls revealed in an email to Variety that she followed up the somewhat upsetting after-party experience by celebrating the reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out.

Shortly after, Streep, Robbie, Ronan and Hawkins enjoyed a group hug in the audience, which thankfully, was captured on camera for us all to enjoy.
