Sandra Bullock proud of both of her nominations -- for Oscar and for Razzie

Yesterday, Sandra Bullock picked up a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her work in The Blind Side, and now the first-time nominee finds herself pitted against 16-time nominee Meryl Streep (Julie & Julia) for the prize. Not that she feels competitive. “Meryl and I laugh about what people say about us going ‘head to head,” Bullock says. “In our world, we talk, we laugh, we’re so thankful just to have a mention. I told her, ‘This ride with you has made it so sweet.’ Because I like her so much as a human being and as a woman.”

But Bullock’s “honors” don’t end there. A day before nabbing her Oscar nod, Bullock found out she was nominated for a Razzie for her performance in last September’s flop All About Steve, a film she also produced. “Oh my God, how fantastic is that?” she says of the recognition. “I’m showing up if I win.” Seriously? “Hell, yes! I do everything 100 percent,” she says. “With All About Steve, we were trying to do something different. And if it gets some kind of award, that means people are talking about it. 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’s awesome

  • graeme

    Amazing. How can you not love this woman?

    • jb

      Easy: There’s Something About Steve, Miss Congeniality 2, The Lake House, Speed 2.

      So it goes from “love” to a strong “like.” :)

      • Nerwen Aldarion

        I understand Something About Steve, Miss Congeniality 2, and Speed 2 but The Lake House? What was wrong with her acting in that?

      • Anne

        bad movies, but she doesn’t do anything wrong in them. Meryl Streep has some ridiculous movies too. Death Becomes Her? Ugh.

      • Teri

        Oh no you didn’t, Death Becomes Her is such an underrated movie!

      • christianslovematch

        Sandra is aweseom

      • will

        and your spelling is terribull!

  • Mick Crisler

    Ms Bullock is a very pretty woman, but why the sad eyes? If that is a recent picture, then something is brewing. I’m always entertained by her work whether she wins any awards or not.

  • GS

    This is why I love Sandra Bullock! So down to earth!

  • rkor

    As much as I want Meryl Streep to win the Oscar, I have to say that Sandra Bullock seems like one of the nicest people you could possibly want to know and ever meet.

    • Michael H.

      Yes, she seems like a nice person. But being a nice person is not the criteria used to determine Oscar winners.

      • rkor

        Oh I agree wholeheartedly that being a nice person shouldn’t equal winning Best Actress. I am totally rooting for Meryl Streep to win.

      • Everton Carter

        Oh it’s part of it and not much less than giving the best movie performance in any given year.
        There’s many a great performance that loses out to a showier one by a better liked actor; or by someone who has been great for years, but somehow never won an Oscar so we’d better give them one now!

    • keith

      I agree. I want Meryl to win, but Sandra is so lovely that I could hardly be upset about it.

    • stevex

      I have never heard Meryl Streep described as anything but a nice person, as well as being one of the best actresses in film history.

    • Q

      I really like her as a person; less so as an actor. One exception – the drastically mis-advertised 28 Days rehab movie. She was actually quite good in that.

      • J

        kudos to you for mentioning 28 days, I liked that movie too!

  • Shannon

    Sandra Bullock is possibly the most “real”, down-to-earth actress working in Hollywood today! This would be a hoot (if she does attend the Razzies)

  • jfms777

    There was a time when a first-time Best Actor/Actress nominee could not win an Oscar. It was felt that they needed “more experience under their belt” before winning. How different now. It took Kate Winslet
    6 noms before she got Best Actress.
    Let Sandra do some more good work. This year belongs to Meryl.

    • Maggie25

      That’s kind of silly. First of all, Meryl won her first oscar for Kramer vs Kramer when she was still a relatively new actor. Second of all, an oscar is for a single performance, not a body of work (even though it often seems to work out that way). Furthermore, it’s not like Bullock is new to the movie scene.

    • Everton Carter

      Sandra has done plenty of good work. She’s immensly underrated and I can’t understand why? Although that does happen a lot to predominantly comedic actors.

  • harry

    Good show Sandra Bullock!

  • Dave

    I really love Sandra. She’s not my favorite actress or anything, but as a person, she just seems awesome. I can’t really think of any other person in Hollywood who seems more likable.

  • BrandonK

    That’s how you should respond to getting a Razzie…with good humor. I’m not surprised that was her reaction, though. She seems like she “gets it”. I would be pleased if Meryl were to win the Oscar…her Julia was spot-on and affecting.

  • Jason

    Are the Razzies after the Oscars? It would be hilarious if she shows up to the Razzies with her Oscar (if she wins).

    • RubyBaby

      Jason, the award ceremony is held the night before the Oscars (Saturday, March 6th). So, no, she couldn’t turn up with an Oscar in hand. Kudos to her though for embracing the Razzies and getting into the spirit of the awards, rather than pretending it doesn’t exist.

      • orville

        Well, then it would be fun if she manages to mention the Razzie in her Oscar acceptance speech should she win. I have a feeling she might.

        Referencing another recent PopWatch post–she’s one of my girl crushes. I kind of want to be her when I grow up (even though she’s only about 5 years older).

  • paige

    yea lets she if she goes to the Razzies even if she doesnt win the Oscar

  • michael butts

    Meryl, you need to play an overweight teen with an abusive mother who grows up to coach a football team and then you might get your long overdue Oscar.

    • Maggie25

      She has won twice, calm down.

  • Rebekah

    I saw both of her nominated movies. She is truly deserving of both her Oscar & Razzie nominations. :-)

  • kim in kentucky

    its just like when Julia Roberts got hers with Erin Brockovich – yes a nice person, but not the person who gave the best performance

    • Robert

      The nomination, yes … the OSCAR, NO.

    • Robert

      Exactly, Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow all over again.

    • Lance

      Read the book, see the interviews with Lee Ann Tuohy. Sandra gave an Oscar worthy performance.

    • Everton Carter

      Who do you think gave the best performance then?
