Oscar victor Frances McDormand finished her acceptance speech for Best Actress in a Leading Role at Sunday's Academy Awards by saying, "I would like to leave you with two words: inclusion rider".

Apparently McDormand was seen crying at the Governors Awards Ball after-party she gave up looking for her statue and left with her husband Joel Coen.

But soon, she realized that her precious trophy went missing.

Bryant posted a video of himself in a tuxedo at the event holding an Oscar statuette and telling other guests he was a victor.

He was caught trying to leave the party by a photographer who followed Bryant because he didn't recognize him. The award was later returned to McDormand. "This is mine. We got it tonight, baby", reports NDTV. My team got this tonight.

Bryant, who told other attendees he secured the Oscar "for music", was taken into custody by the LAPD Hollywood division soon after filming his "celebrations".

"After a brief time apart, Frances and her Oscar were happily reunited". The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences issued a statement in the wake of the incident, saying: "Best Actress victor Frances McDormand and her Oscar were happily reunited after a brief separation at last night's Governors Ball". The 2-time Academy victor McDormand bagged one at Oscars 2018 for her commendable performance in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".
