Oscars 2010: Sandra Bullock, Razzie winner and a great sport
Sandra Bullock promised she'd show up at the Razzie Awards -- the annual celebration of the "best" in Hollywood schlock -- if she received worst actress honors for her groundbreaking turn in "All About Steve." Apparently the Oscar nominee and Arlington, Va., native keeps her promises.
Bullock bolted briefly from the Motion Picture & Television Fund's Oscar party on Saturday night to appear before the raucous Razzie crowd at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in L.A., where she wheeled a wagon full of "All About Steve" DVDs onto the stage so the attendees could each have a copy of the rom-com, watch it and rethink their decision.
"Something tells me you all didn't really watch the movie, because I wouldn't be here if you had really watched it and understood what I was trying to say," she said. After voters revisit the movie and inevitably grasp its genius, Bullock said she would come back next year, return her Razzie and go out for drinks with everyone after the ceremony. Given her appearance tonight -- she's only the second actor to ever accept a Razzie in person, the first being Halle Berry, who showed up to claim her award for "Catwoman" -- I wouldn't be surprised if she follows up on that offer.
In addition to feting Bullock, the Golden Raspberry Awards, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this year, recognized the fine achievements of Michael Bay (worst director of 2009 for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"), the Jonas Brothers (worst actors of 2009, "Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience"), Sienna Miller (worst supporting actress, "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra") and Billy Ray Cyrus (worst supporting actor, "Hannah Montana: The Movie") during the annual community-theater-style send-up of the Academy Awards. The Razzies also doled out several best-of-the-decade trophies, including one for the worst picture of the '00s, "Battlefield Earth," which was accepted by another bold soul willing to make a personal appearance, co-screenwriter J.D. Shapiro.
"I especially want to thank the dozens and dozens of people who saw it," Shapiro said upon receiving his award, drawing a standing ovation from the gleefully snarky crowd.
As Razzies founder John Wilson pointed out, if Bullock wins the Academy Award Sunday for her performance in a far more positively received film, "The Blind Side," she'll be the first person in history to have won both an Oscar and a Razzie in the same weekend. Sandra Bullock, ladies and gentlemen: a pioneer in the world of cinema, and one with a hell of a sense of humor.
