McDormand’s Oscar Thief Was Arrested

The man who briefly stole Frances McDormand’s Oscar for best actress on Sunday night has been arrested on grand theft charges.

Terry Bryant, 47, took McDormand’s Oscar from her table at the Governor’s Ball after the ceremony and posted a Facebook Live video holding the trophy up and claiming: “Got this tonight! This is mine. We got it tonight, baby!”

He allowed those around him at the party to touch the trophy, and even offered photos with the Oscar which he claimed he won for music. He was reportedly stopped by Wolfgang Puck’s photographer who got the Oscar back.

McDormand’s rep, Simon Hall, said in a statement that the actress and her Oscar “were happily reunited last night” after a brief time apart.
