Frances McDormand has been reunited with her Oscar after it was stolen from her table inside the Governors Ball after-party, where she was celebrating her second career best actress win for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
The 60-year-old was spotted having her statue engraved at the the annual after-party before the golden trophy disappeared. She ended up leaving the party empty handed with her husband Joel Coen, but security personnel were eventually able to locate the statue and return it to the actress.
In a statement, Frances's rep told People "I can confirm that after a brief time apart, Frances and her Oscar were happily reunited last night. They celebrated their reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out."
According to New York Times reporter Cara Buckley, a photographer snapped a picture of the suspect before retrieving the allegedly stolen Oscar.
The Los Angeles Police Department have since confirmed Terry Bryant, 47, was arrested late Sunday night for the alleged crime, and booked early the following morning. He was charged with grand theft and police set a bail of USD $20,000.
Apparently, the multi-award winning actress has said to let him go.
Frances has been praised for breathing life into an otherwise uneventful Oscars ceremony.
Taking to the stage with absolute gusto and grace to collect her Best Actress Oscar for her amazing performance as a grieving mother in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the veteran actress gave the best speech of the entire night (which you can watch in the player above).
"I'm hyperventilating a little bit. If I fall over, pick me up because I've got some things to say," Frances began.
Before adding: "I want to thank every single person in this building and my sister Dorothy. I love ya, Dot."
