Frances McDormand scored the Oscar for Best Actress on Sunday night, and soon after her award was swiped off her table during the Governors Ball celebration after the ceremonies.
According to The Verge:
Terry Bryant, 47, was arrested and charged with grand theft shortly after posting a Facebook video of himself drinking and galavanting around with the giant gold statue.
“My team got this tonight,” Bryant says in the video. “This is mine. We got it tonight, baby.” Bryant then smooches the statue several times before yelling “Who wants to tell me congratulations?” While people swarm in to touch the stolen award — which Bryant repeatedly says he got “for music” — he can be heard asking people where the parties are happening.
The thief was also captured in photos with the stolen Oscar, and the Facebook video doesn’t paint him as terribly remorseful or bright. “You know what? I can’t believe I got this,” Bryant says to the camera. Same, because shortly after, Bryant was stopped by Wolfgang Puck’s photographer, and the award was returned to its rightful owner. Presumably, Bryant did not make it to Jimmy Kimmel’s party.
