After delivering the acceptance speech of the night (and inspiring everyone to frantically Google “inclusion rider”), Frances McDormand was tragically separated from her Best Actress Oscar when a man — because of course it was a man — had the nerve to steal it from her at the Governors Awards ball. Thankfully, the separation was brief, as McDormand and her little golden friend were reunited, at which point they enjoyed a post-Oscars trip to In-N-Out burger. Meanwhile, the suspect has been arrested for felony grand theft.
Chances are if you were watching the 2018 Oscars — like pretty much everyone else on the internet — then you saw Frances McDormand’s incredible acceptance speech for Best Actress. McDormand, who took home the honor for her performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (a timely film for the #MeToo movement), invited all of her fellow female nominees across every category to stand up and share in the remarkable moment. Then she ended the speech with a piece of advice. “Two words,” McDormand said. “Inclusion rider.”
