Almost everyone expected Sandra Bullock to take home the best actress trophy from the 2010 Academy Awards for her role in The Blind Side, but it was still a sweet victory for the often underestimated actress anyway. We do have to wonder, however, how she reallyÂ feels about being voted both the best actress and the worst actress of the year all in the same week.
Sandra Bullock tearfully offered thanks to her mother during a moving acceptance speech for best actress at the 82nd annual Academy Awards. Although we were leaning toward Gabourey Sidibe for Precious, we don’t begrudge Bullock for her best actress win. It was obviously the role of a lifetime for Bullock and she played it well.
Amusingly enough, Sandra Bullock was just as gracious accepting a worst actress Razzie Award shortly before the Oscars for her performance in the terrible romantic comedy All About Steve. Bullock even said on the red carpet at the Academy Awards that she would place her Razzie and her Oscar side by side on her mantel if she won. Guess she’ll have to live up to that promise now!
“It’s one of those rare occasions in a lifetime when all the puzzle pieces come together and they work,” Bullock said before the Oscars got underway. “You can’t manufacture that. You can’t plan it. You can’t fix it. It’s sweet â€” unexpected but very sweet.”
Congrats Sandra! We hope this means you’ll have a lot more meaty scripts to choose from in the future. Not that we don’t love you as the cheese ball hottie that you are, but every now and then it’s nice to see you’ve actually got acting chops under all that charm.
