The 2018 Oscars aired last night, with McDormand picking up her second Academy Award as Best Actress. The “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” star then went to the Governors Ball after the show. That’s when her statue was briefly stolen.
The “Three Billboards” trophy was later recovered, so her “Fargo” Oscar will get to meet its new sibling.
Deadline said police arrested Terry Bryant, 47, for the crime. He had a ticket to the event, police said, but he didn’t have authority to be the new Best Actress winner. He was arrested at 11:50 PT, and he’s facing a charge of felony grand theft. His bail is set at $20,000.
Frances McDormand had an impressive, and interactive, Oscars speech, asking the female nominees in all categories to stand up during the speech. She issued a call to action for inclusion riders, asking actors to include stipulations in their contracts to ensure more diversity.
