...Seriously dude?!

March 6, 2018

A man was arrested and is accused of stealing Frances McDormand’s Oscars trophy after the Academy Awards on Sunday night. Terry Bryant, 47, was arrested on suspicion of felony grand theft. Video captured by The Associated Press appears to show Bryant walking with the statuette out of the Governors Ball, the Oscars after-party where police say he took it. The video shows a man in a tuxedo who appears to be Bryant holding an Oscar statuette highly and proudly as an onlooker cheers. He then quickly glances around him before walking out of frame, prominently holding the Oscar the entire time. Another photographer who took Bryant’s picture at about the same time did not recognize him as a winner at the ceremony, and began following him. When he was confronted, Bryant handed back the statuette without a fight.
