Lawyer: Man accused of stealing Oscar will fight charge

Frances Mc Dormand at the Academy Awards Governors Ball

McDormand (60) won the award for her role as an angry, grieving mother in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

Suspect Terry Bryant appeared behind glass in the Los Angeles courtroom in a blue jail jumpsuit when he entered his plea. His bond has been set at $20,000.

Prosecutors have charged Bryant with a single felony count for taking the bronze statuette because it is worth more than $950, according to The Los Angeles Times. In this photo, Frances McDormand is seen attending the 90th Annual Academy Awards Governors Ball at the Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4, 2018.

In what is perhaps the most weird story to come out of this year's Academy Awards, Frances McDormand's Oscar statue was briefly stolen from her table during the Governor's Ball, the official afterparty for the ceremony.

Video shot by The Associated Press appears

Brookman said the grand theft charge isn't justified for swiping an Oscar because their despite their cultural value, street value is very limited by the fact that the film academy keeps a stake in their ownership and controls how they can be used.

Mr Brookman addressed the footage, saying: "There's a difference between holding an Oscar and what he is charged with, so that will play out in court".

Video captured by The Associated Press appears to show Bryant walking with the statuette out of the party, the Governors Ball, and holding it up proudly to photographers and gawkers waiting outside. He was caught by a photographer who spotted him at the Governors Ball with the award. The judge said that influenced her decision to release Bryant on his own recognizance.

"My team got this tonight", Bryant says in the video, which is still available on Facebook thanks to the merciful internet gods.
