Frances McDormand's Best Actress Oscar stolen at Governors Ball in Hollywood

Associated Press shared a video which appears to show the man who authorities say stole McDormand's Oscar walking out of the official Academy Awards after-party.

Frances McDormand attends the 90th Annual Academy Awards Governors Ball at the Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4, 2018.

McDormand alerted security when she realised it was missing, and the thief was stopped by a photographer who recovered the stolen Oscar and reunited it with its rightful owner.

Bryant also reportedly posted a video on social media of himself at the event holding an Oscar statuette and telling other guests he was a victor.

He was caught trying to leave the party by a photographer who followed Bryant because he didn't recognize him.


Police said Bryant was exiting the Governors Ball when he was photographed holding an Oscar statuette. Herrera said Bryant had a ticket for the event.

The victor of Best actress category in Oscars this year, Frances McDormand was in for a big surprise after the event. "Sup babies, look, my team got this tonight".

McDormand, 60, won best actress at Sunday's awards for her role as a rage-filled mother seeking justice for her murdered daughter in Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. "The Oscar was returned to the recipient".

Dressed in a tuxedo with hair held back in hairpins, he is seen in the footage posted on the page of a Terry Bryant Djmatari kissing the trophy and allowing bystanders to touch it.

Her rep told USA Today that the actress got the trophy back. "They celebrated the reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out Burger".
