So The Oscars were last night, and of course people wore pretty dresses and gold statues were handed out and James Cameron went home to wipe away his tears with billions of dollars in cash. Oh, and Sandra Bullock became the first person to win both an Oscar and a Razzie award (for Best and Worst Actress respectively), and she was actually pretty cool about the whole thing.
Bullock implied that many Razzie voters had not actually seen the movie
but cast ballots for her hoping to get her to show up at the awards.
Bullock said if they watched the DVD - "I mean really watch it" - and
decided it was not the worst performance of the year after all, then
she would come back next year and "give back the Razzie. ... then we'll
go drink afterwards." (Source)
And of course, her Oscar acceptance speech was equally badass.
"So... if I can take this moment to thank Helga
B. for not letting me ride in cars with boys until I was 18 because she
was right," Sandra continued. "I would've done what she said I was
gonna do. For making me practice every day when I got home. Piano,
ballet, whatever it is I wanted to be. She said to be an artist, you
had to practice every day, and for reminding her daughters that there's
no race, no religion, no class system, no color, nothing, no sexual
orientation that makes us better than anyone else. We are all deserving
of love. So, to that trailblazer, who allowed me to have that. And
Okay, so while I certainly think there were actresses who deserved the Oscar more than she did, I have to admit, the girl gives some seriously badass Oscar speeches. I'm tempted to give her every award in the world just to hear another one of her speeches. You know what? Eff it, Sandra Bullock, you win the Litely Salted Award for Best Speech. You may leave your words of acceptance in the comments. You can check out both speeches in full after the jump.
