The producer of the popular film, The King's Speech, showed immense gratitude to rail staff after they found his award on one of their trains.
When he got off at Didcot Parkway, Gareth Ellis-Unwin was in a "mad panic" without his briefcase that contained the Best Picture award.
Gareth Ellis-Unwin was in a "mad panic" after he got off at Didcot Parkway, Oxfordshire, without the briefcase containing his Best Picture award.
According to The Metro, Ellis-Unwin called up GWR who sent out a team onto the train at Oxford to collect the statuette.
Mr Unwin later on tweeted: "Got to say a massive thank you to all the staff @GWRHelp awesome customer service".
Glyn Davis, a GWR call handler, responded amusingly: "Thanks Gareth, we got there in the end #GreatOutcome.""
One GWR spokesman, unsurprisingly said that it was the first occasion in which an Oscar had been left on the train.
He said further: "We're pleased our teams were able to deliver a show-stopping performance for Gareth and reunite him with his Oscar."
