A man who apparently swiped Frances McDormand’s Oscar trophy boasted about it on Facebook, claiming he won it for music, before being arrested on suspicion of felony grand theft.

Terry Bryant, 47, was being held on $20,000 bail for allegedly stealing the statue at the Governors Ball party soon after Sunday night’s 90th Academy Awards ceremony in Hollywood. A Los Angeles police department spokesperson said Bryant had a ticket for the event.
“Sup babies, look, my team got this tonight. Who wants to tell me congratulations?” Bryant, dressed in a tuxedo, said in a video posted on Facebook. “This is mine. We got it tonight, baby!”
Onlookers asked to touch the statuette and offered congratulations, apparently unaware the Oscar belonged to McDormand.

When Bryant yelled for directions to the party hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the ceremony’s presenter, an unidentified bystander replied: “That’s your ticket to any party you want to go to.”
McDormand won the award for her performance as a grieving mother seeking justice for her murdered daughter in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
Her powerful acceptance speech demanding greater inclusion of women and marginalised groups in the film industry electrified the Dolby theatre audience.
Directed by Martin McDonagh, Three Billboards is a darkly comic drama set in a fictional – and highly dysfunctional – midwestern town. McDormand stars as Mildred Hayes, a mother whose anger at the local police force’s failure to catch her daughter’s killer prompts her to mount an unusual publicity stunt. The film also stars Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell.
McDormand began her career in the Coen brothers’ debut feature Blood Simple, and has appeared in a number of the directing duo’s films over the year, including Raising Arizona, Burn After Reading and Hail, Caesar! She has also appeared in the Wes Anderson comedy Moonlight Kingdom, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and the TV miniseries Olive Kitteridge. In addition to her two best actress Oscars, she has received three best supporting actress nominations, for Mississippi Burning (1989), Almost Famous (2001) and North Country (2006).
