Someone stole Frances McDormand’s Oscar off her table at the Governors Ball after the ceremony. He fooled around with it for a bit, and even made a video claiming that it was his, and that he’d won it “for music.”
Fortunately, he was caught. Frances’ rep later said, “Fran and Oscar are happily reunited and are enjoying an In-N-Out burger together.” She was apparently willing to let the thief off the hook, but he wasn’t that lucky.
He’s a 47-year-old man named Terry Bryant, and he was arrested and booked on felony grand theft charges.
He had a ticket to the event, and apparently grabbing and holding award show trophies is his ‘thing.’ The “New York Post” has photos of him with a SAG Award and a ‘Golden Popcorn” MTV Movie Award.
It’s unclear if he planned on actually running off with Frances’ Oscar. Hopefully the charges stick and he’ll learn that this isn’t something you do.
