After accepting the Best Actress award for her role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", McDormand joyfully implored the women who were nominated this year, in all categories, to stand and share the moment with her. Her spokesperson said, "I can confirm that, after a brief time apart last night, Frances and her Oscar were happily reunited". McDormand's rep Simon Halls revealed in an email to Variety that she followed up the somewhat upsetting after-party experience by celebrating the reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out.

Before McDormand retook possession of her Oscar, Reuters photographer Mario Anzuoni saw an Academy official at the Governor's Ball hand the recovered statuette to best actor victor Gary Oldman to return to McDormand. He was captured on the AP video holding it proudly over his head and saying, "All right baby boys and baby girls".

Bryant's boasting on Sunday night caught the attention of a photographer who did not recognize him as a victor at the ceremony and began following him, police said.

Surprisingly, Terry Bryant handed back the trophy without any fight before the security guards detained him.

Bryant is expected to be arraigned in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday.

In the run-up to the Academy Awards, leading actor winners Francis McDormand and Gary Oldman also struggled to garner online visibility.

In "Three Billboards", McDormand played Mildred Hayes, a hardened woman seeking justice for her daughter's murder in the crime drama.

Bryant was being held on $20,000 bail Monday, police said. Same, because shortly after Bryant was stopped by Wolfgang Puck's photographer, and the award was returned to its rightful owner.

In a video which is no longer available on Facebook, Terry can be seen clutching the award at the Governor's Ball and telling onlookers: "My team got this tonight". People around him offered him congratulations.
