Frances McDormand gives rousing Oscars speech and commands all female standing ovation

Sunday was a star-studded night Oscar night in Los Angeles, filled with dazzling ensembles, celebrities and Academy Award winners - though the show did get historically low television ratings.

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 video captured Bryant leaving the ball holding the Oscar and saying: "We got it".

Los Angeles police said a photographer who didn't recognize Bryant as an Oscar victor helped nab the suspected thief.

LAPD said Bryant was a ticket holder for the Governor's Ball, which is the official formal dinner after the ceremony.

Hours later, McDormand's representative Simon Halls confirmed to USA TODAY that the trophy and the Oscar victor were back together.

The victor of Best actress category in Oscars this year, Frances McDormand was in for a big surprise after the event. The Oscar was then returned to McDormand, who won for her lead role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

Unfortunately, Terry Bryant didn't get that particular memo. "They celebrated the reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out", McDormand's representative Simon Halls said in a statement, referring to the California fast-food chain.

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.

Janney tells Spencer that one of her favorite moments at the Oscars was when McDormand asked all the women to stand up during her speech.
