Terry Bryant thought it would be a good idea to steal Frances McDormand’s Academy Award for Best Actress last night at The Governor’s Ball.

via TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell us the man who swiped the Best Actress statue from Frances’ table at The Governor’s Ball Sunday night has been booked on felony grand theft.

The thief was photographed with the stolen hardware just before he was nabbed. Frances noticed her Oscar was MIA from the table and notified security at The Governor’s Ball at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Security found the guy with Oscar in hand and turned him over to cops when they arrived.

Frances took home the award for Best Actress for her role in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

Shortly after the incident, a rep for Frances said, “Fran and Oscar are happily reunited and are enjoying an In-N-Out burger together.”

He had a WHOLE photo shoot with the statue before being arrested.Take a look:
