Best Actress winner Francis McDorman headed to the annual Governors Ball party after the Oscar show Sunday night, where she had her statue engraved with her name. McDormand was later seen crying outside the party after realizing her Academy Award was missing and unsuccessfully trying to find it.
McDormand left the party with her husband, but security was eventually able to find the statue and return it to the actress. Someone allegedly attempted to steal the statue. Chef Wolfgang Puck’s photographer captured a photo of the suspect before retrieving the allegedly stolen Oscar. Security personnel continued to search for the alleged Oscar thief but he had apparently gone back into the party after the confrontation.
Apparently, Frances has said to let him go.
Security at the Governors Ball are looking for this guy, who grabbed Frances McDormand’s Oscar and ran out with it. Wolfgang Puck’s photographer stopped him, got the Oscar back, and the guy disappeared back into the ball. Apparently Frances has said to let him go. #Oscars #Drama pic.twitter.com/5tlsx4Ulwt
