Sandra Bullock went home last night with a Best Actress Oscar for her work in The Blind Side and seemed as shocked as anyone to have received it. Especially considering the fact that just a day earlier, she won a Worst Actress Razzie Award for for her role in All About Steve.
The Golden Raspberries, a.k.a. The Razzies are typically held the night before the Oscars, and celebrate the worst that cinema had to offer over the past year. After finding out she was nominated for her role as a woman stalking Bradley Cooper while also enduring the worst set of blonde highlights ever, she promised to show up to the awards show if she won and said “I’m more comfortable with criticism than I am with goodwill, because I’m more familiar with it, and I’ve made friends with it. And the Razzies are a great honor.” She accepted her Worst Actress award just as charmingly and graciously as she accepted her Oscar, bringing DVD copies of All About Steve to the entire Razzie audience and telling them “You guys can just watch the movie and rethink your decision, and I’ll show up next year and we can go out for a drink afterward.”
After winning her Oscar, Bullock said she’s glad she to have won both awards in the same year. “It probably means more that both of them happened at the same time,” she said. “It’s the great equalizer. Nothing ever let’s me get too full of myself. It quickly chops me off at the knees, and I like it that way because it just keeps things stable. They’ll sit side by side in a nice little shelf somewhere, the Razzie maybe on a different shelf… lower!” It’s funny, no matter what award she wins, Bullock still manages to be Miss Congeniality.
