Frances McDormand (Almost) Lost Her Oscar

Host Jimmy Kimmel speaks at the Oscars on Sunday

This year's best actress Oscar victor Frances McDormand's trophy was briefly stolen at the official after-party, following which a man suspected of stealing it was arrested.

Bryant was arrested on Sunday night after McDormand's award went missing briefly at the lavish Governor's Ball party in Hollywood, where Academy Award winners have their statuettes engraved.

The guy who allegedly stole Frances McDormand's Oscar is not going to escape criminal charges just because she doesn't want him prosecuted. and that's because she's not the victim. "The photographer did not recognize Bryant as a recipient from the awards show and believed he was in possession of a trophy which did not belong to him", the LAPD said in a statement on Twitter.

Police said Bryant was exiting the Governors Ball when he was photographed holding an Oscar statuette. TMZ reports the 60-year-old thespian alerted event security personnel who in turn found the would-be thief with the Oscar in his hands.

The actress called on all the female winners and nominees to stand with her as she claimed the prize for her role.

During last night's The Late Late Show, host James Corden took a swipe at both the weird attempted theft and the fact that the after-party's renowned chef even had a personal photographer.
