Man arrested for allegedly stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar, police say

Man arrested for allegedly stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar, police say

A lawyer for the man charged with stealing Frances McDormand's Academy Award said Wednesday that he and his client plan to "forcefully and aggressively resist" the allegations against him. McDormand was seen crying after giving up searching for her Oscar.

Bryant posted a video of himself in a tuxedo at the event holding an Oscar statuette and telling other guests he was a victor. Police said Bryant had a ticket to the Governors Ball at the Hollywood & Highland complex.

And Frances McDormand is a consummately cool actor known for her roles in seminal quirky important films "Fargo" and "Blood Simple" by the also cool Coen Brothers, Ethan and Joel, the latter her husband.

McDormand's representative, Simon Halls, confirmed the trophy was eventually returned to her.

Last night, Frances McDormand won an Oscar for Best Actress for her incredible performance in Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri. Bryant remains behind bars on £14,500 bail.

According to a tweet from the festivities, chef Wolfgang Puck's photographer eventually spotted and stopped Bryant, and retrieved the Oscar. A rep for McDormand did not return THR's request for comment. "We got it tonight, baby".

He tells the woman he won an Academy Award for best producer and offers to let her hold the statue before the video cuts out. Security located Bryant during the post-Oscar festivities and called police, the entertainment site said.

"Who wants to tell me congratulations?" he asked the crowd, prompting commendations from those around him.

He followed Bryant out of the party "and without any resistance from Bryant took the Oscar from him". Below we have both Frances McDormand's acceptance speech from ABC YouTube, and another video from Variety YouTube featuring Frances McDormand's interview in the Oscar's press room, shortly after her big win.
