While most of the Oscar categories were wide open, one of the surefire locks was Frances McDormand, who took home the prize for her powerhouse performance in Fox Searchlight's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
It was the second time McDormand had bagged the best actress statuette following her win for "Fargo" 21 years earlier, and her acceptance speech was a highlights of the evening. "This is mine", he said, before planting a kiss on the Oscar's head in a since deleted video selfie posted to his Facebook.
Kim has now responded to Frances, revealing she was shocked to get a mention onstage at the Oscars, and she has invited Frances to go snowboarding with her. "They celebrated the reunion with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out Burger", McDormand's publicist, Simon Halls, said in a statement.
McDormand, who won the best actress gong for her role in Three Billboards, referenced the Grenfell tragedy as she spoke about the power and relevance of billboards.
At one point, he said, "Where's the Jimmy Kimmel party at?" and an unidentified bystander replied, "That's your ticket to any party you want to go to!"
"I'm committed to the Inclusion Rider", Brie Larson, victor of the Best Actress Oscar for the 2015 film "Room", wrote on Twitter after the Academy Awards ceremony. Police say he handed back the statue without a struggle and was arrested.
Mr Brookman made the comment at a press conference at Los Angeles' Foltz Criminal Justice Centre where Bryant was due to appear.
The Academy Award was returned to McDormand, police said. His social media accounts also include photos of him at shows including the Emmys, Screen Actors Guild Awards and MTV Video Music Awards. Police set bail at $20,000. People around him offered him congratulations.
"I got this. This is mine!" he said. "Sup babies, look, my team got this tonight".
