A man accused of stealing Frances McDormand's best actress Oscar from an official after-party has been arrested, Los Angeles police said on Monday.

The 60 year old was reportedly spotted crying outside of the Governors Ball when she noticed that her award had gone missing.

Security were searching for the accolade which luckily already had her name engraved on it and hours later McDormand's representative Simon Halls confirmed the Academy Award victor had been reunited with the accolade.

Footage taken by the Associated Press revealed Bryant while going out the Governors Ball, where the Oscars after-party took place, while holding the figure.

Bryant is said to have had a ticket for the ball. Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight.

The Observatory said some 2,000 civilians had fled regime shelling and clashes in eastern areas to western parts of the enclave. Rebel groups launched a counter-offensive on Sunday, sending fighters behind government lines in a series of attacks.

The Oscar was retrieved and later returned to McDormand.

The sweet moment was quickly passed around social media and came as the founders of the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, and women in Hollywood in general, were recognised during the ceremony. "Sup babies, look, my team got this tonight".

Unfortunately, Terry Bryant didn't get that particular memo. However the skilled actress was also in for a little shock when someone had just plain walked away with her golden statue. Allison Janney's roles as an abusive mother in I, Tonya won her Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

"They celebrated the reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out Burger", her representative added.

Shortly after, Streep, Robbie, Ronan and Hawkins enjoyed a group hug in the audience, which thankfully, was captured on camera for us all to enjoy.
