A 47-year-old man arrested for stealing Frances McDormand’s Oscar Trophy


Frances McDormand won an Oscar for Best actress in her role on Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. She was celebrating at the ball when Terry Bryant allegedly swiped the trophy from her table.

The 47-year-old took to his Facebook to brag about the trophy. He said;“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!”

A New York Times reporter, Cara Buckley, tweeted a photo (below) of Bryant and said a photographer working for the chef Wolfgang Puck stopped him and retrieved the statuette.

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.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said in a statement: “Best Actress winner Frances McDormand and her Oscar were happily reunited after a brief separation at last night’s Governors Ball. The alleged thief was quickly apprehended by a photographer and members of our fast-acting Academy and security teams.”

You steal something and share it on social media? He must be the worst thief ever,lol.
