Frances McDormand Loses Best Actress Oscar to Even Better Actor

And the Oscar for Best Actress goes to….this guy.

Terry Bryant, the man in the video, stole Frances McDormand’s Oscar for Best Actress and went around posing with the trophy. He gives a short victory speech, thanking his team, before tricking spectators into thinking it’s really his. He brags that he won it for “music.” No word yet if his speech was short enough to win him the jet ski.

When McDormand noticed her Oscar missing, she notified authorities at The Governor’s Ball. Thankfully, authorities needed only one Facebook post online and not three billboards outside Hollywood, California to find the suspect. They apprehended Bryant as he was getting on the escalator to leave. Bryant was booked on felony grand theft with bail set at $20,000.

Oscar trophies are engraved at The Governor’s Ball. A woman can be heard asking, “Is it engraved yet with your name on it?” Had she taken a look for herself, she would have noticed that the the holder was not a 60-year-old white woman.

A rep told TMZ that Frances and Oscar were “happily reunited and are enjoying an In-N-Out burger together.”

At least the Texas Rangers didn’t have to get involved like when Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jersey was snatched last year.

McDormand stole Sunday night’s event with her acceptance speech where she got the words “Inclusion Rider” trending online.

“Inclusion Rider” is a clause that calls for 50 percent diversity in the cast and crew on any film. McDormand explained after the event that she just learned of this clause, despite being in the business for 35 years. She doesn’t want women or minorities “trending,” she wants them to be apart of something long-term.

If you think about it, Bryant was just fulfilling her wishes of wanting everyone to feel included.
