Frances McDormand's Oscar Was Stolen -- But She Has It Back Now


Frances McDormand had quite the night on Oscar Sunday.

McDormand won Best Actress for her performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but ended up being separated from her Oscar at the Governors Awards ball. A spokesperson with the LAPD tells ET that a man was arrested in connection with the incident. 

“We are confirming there was an incident that occurred there and there was an arrest made," the spokesperson said in a statement. “Terry Bryant was arrested yesterday and booked for Felony Grand Theft.”

The LAPD also tweeted about the incident on Monday, thanking a photographer who allegedly caught Brant with the stolen Oscar. According to the tweet, it appears Bryant did have a ticket to the Governors Awards ball, and his bail is set for $20,000.

On Monday, McDormand's rep confirmed to ET that she has received her Oscar back.

“After a brief time apart, Frances and her Oscar were happily reunited," her rep said in a statement. "They celebrated the reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out."

According to USA Today, the actress was seen "crying emotionally" outside the Governors Awards ball and eventually gave up the search for her missing Oscar -- which was engraved with her name at the ball -- and left the party with her husband, filmmaker Joel Coen. 

Meanwhile, the 60-year-old actress is being praised for her powerful speech on Sunday, which advocated for gender and racial equality in hiring on movie sets. In a memorable moment, McDormand asked all the female nominees in every category to stand up with her. 

"OK, look around everybody," she said. "Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed."
