Alleged Oscar thief pleads not guilty despite video evidence

Frances Mc Dormand made a string call to action while accepting her Best Actress Oscar for Three Billboards last night

A man who allegedly stole Frances McDormand's Oscar at an Academy Awards afterparty on Sunday has been arrested.

He was spotted walking out of the Governors Ball holding the Oscar over his head and saying, "All right baby boys and baby girls". Upon not recognising him as one of the winners, he started following the accused before confronting him. The 60-year-old actress won the prestigious award for her performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said he faces up to three years in jail if convicted and that a 20,000-dollar (£14,400) bail had been requested.

Because of that, the Academy is listed as the victim on the official police report and officials have already informed the LAPD that they intend to press charges against Bryant, TMZ reports.

Frances was seen crying outside of the Governors Ball with her husband, only soon to be smiling again with her engraved award. "There's a difference between holding an Oscar and what he is charged with, so that will play out in court", Brookman said.

Los Angeles Police Sgt. Meghan Aguilar said a photographer stopped Bryant before he could take off with the statuette.

"Cheers darling", McDormand says then offers the I, Tonya star a sip of her tequila.

"They celebrated the reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out Burger", her representative added. The reporter softly reaches out to the actress and asks her for a few congratulatory words for Janney.

Bryant, who had posted video of himself with the award on Facebook Live, was arrested and charged with grand theft. "The Oscar was returned to the recipient". "Sup babies, look, my team got this tonight". McDormand used her precious amount of acceptance speech time to have all the women in the room who had been nominated for an award stand and be recognized for their hard work.
