The "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" actress was at the party getting her Oscar engraved.
"My team got this tonight", Bryant says in the video. Reportedly, the man who stole the Oscar picked it from Frances table. "They also celebrated their reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out", McDormand's representative told the press.
As Buckley reported, the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri actress was eventually reunited with her Oscar and had her evening unsoured thanks to Puck's photographer. He followed Bryant out of the party "and without any resistance from Bryant took the Oscar from him", the statement said. Oldman posed for photos with the two Oscars but returned McDormand's to officials because the actress had already left the ball.
Police said the Los Angeles resident handed the gold-plated bronze statuette back without a struggle and was arrested. He was captured on the AP video holding it proudly over his head and saying, "All right baby boys and baby girls".
McDormand created one of the most memorable moments of the night during this year's Acadamy Awards ceremony.
Bryant's Instagram account shows him holding trophies from several big awards shows while posing as a victor.
Her Oscar was awarded for playing an angry and bitter mother who is seeking vengeance after her daughter is raped and murdered.
Her first Oscar came for the 1996 film "Fargo", directed by her husband Joel Coen and his brother Ethan. Bryant remains behind bars on $20,000 (Dhs73k) bail.
As he spun around in a circle, Bryant solicited congratulations from those around him. "I got to go".
The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office told KOIN 6 News 47-year-old Terry James Bryant was arrested 7 times between 1999 and 2002.
