Sandra Bullock wins 'Worst Actress' Razzie award
And the Oscar for being a Good Sport goes to . . . Sandra Bullock, who snagged the prize for worst actress of 2009 at the Golden Raspberry (Razzie) Awards on Saturday night. Bullock, who has a Golden Globe, a SAG Award and, as of Sunday night, a Best Actress Academy Award for "The Blind Side," won the Razzie for her performance as a crossword puzzle writer in the critically panned "All About Steve." She delighted the crowd of Hollywood insiders when she showed up to accept the prize -- and brought along a child's wagon full of free "Steve" DVDs.
"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," she said in her acceptance speech. "If I'd known that, I would have said I was appearing at the Oscars a long time ago."
Bullock is the first actress to win a Razzie and be nominated for an Academy Award in the same year. (Halle Berry got hers for "Catwoman" and "Monster's Ball," respectively, but they were a few years apart.) Bullock also claimed a second Razzie with "Steve" co-star Bradley Cooper for worst screen couple.
Other 2009 Razzies were for worst movie ("Transformers 2") and worst actor (all three Jonas Brothers for their 3-D concert film). The awards, now in their 30th year, also cited the worst of the decade: Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard's "Battlefield Earth," and actor Eddie Murphy and actress (so to speak) Paris Hilton.
