It was the best of times, it was the worst of times for Sandra Bullock who attended the annual Golden Raspberry Awards (The Razzies) at Barnsdall Theatre in Los Angeles on the eve of The Oscars. Bullock graciously accepted the Worst Actress award for her performance in All About Steve in which she plays single and tactless Crossword Puzzlemaker Mary Horowitz. Bullock told the Associated Press, “I think this is an extraordinary award....and I didn’t realize that, in Hollywood, all you had to do was say you’d show up, and then you’d get the award. If I’d known that, I would have said I was appearing at the Oscars a long time ago."
But 2009 was also a fantastic year for Bullock who had two massive blockbuster hits in The Proposal and The Blind Side, the latter in which she is favoured to win her first Oscar tonight. She was nominated for Golden Globe Awards for both those films also by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. If Bullock were to win tonight she would be following in the footsteps of Halle Barry who was the last actress to win that illusive Oscar/Razzie double for her performance in Monster's Ball, and then the clunker known as Catwoman. Not an easy feat to accomplish by any means. Good luck Sandra, the Mavenati are all rooting for you!
