Academy Award victor Frances McDormand delivered a rousing speech as she accepted the Best Actress award for her role as Mildred Hayes in the crime drama "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

The head chef for The Governor's Ball, the Academy Awards' post-show soiree, got attached to the odd Hollywood controversy after his photographer apprehended a man attempting to walk out with Frances McDormand's statue.

Frances McDormand celebrated her 90 Academy Awards win with tequila and was gracious enough to share the drink with fellow victor Allison Janney.

The man - identified by TMZ as Terry Bryant - snatched it off McDormand's table and even filmed himself holding and kissing the award, saying "This is mine".

He was caught trying to leave the party by a photographer who followed Bryant because he didn't recognize him. "We got it tonight, baby".

Authorities say the Oscar was allegedly stolen during the Governors Ball after party. The 60-year-old actress won the prestigious award for her performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Colorado authorities say one person has died in a crash involving a commuter bus and a rented SUV. The NBA world mourned the sudden passing of a prominent league fixture Sunday night.

Good Morning America shared some of the best moments from the 2018 Oscars on its official Twitter page, and Janney and McDormand's tequila moment was among them.

The actress expounded on her request backstage after her win, explaining to reporters that an inclusion rider allows actors to demand that the cast and crew consist of a certain percentage of people who represent diversity - i.e. women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and people of color.

Unfortunately, Terry Bryant didn't get that particular memo.

"Fran and Oscar are happily reunited and are enjoying an In-N-Out burger together", Halls said in an email.

It was otherwise a relatively uneventful show, however, and early ratings for ABC's telecast showed the U.S. audience at an all-time low of 26.5 million, down around a fifth from last year's audience of 32.9 million, also hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
