Spotlight star Mark Ruffalo – who missed out on the best supporting actor award to Bridge of Spies’s Mark Rylance – posted a photograph of his attempt to take one of the giant decorative statues from the ceremony.

Mark captioned it: “I tried to make off with the big one. Security stopped me. Darn it. #oscars”
