Oscars Thread

I'm not a movie guy, haven't seen any of these films and I'm not watching.

There. That's my take on the Oscars.

Actually, I do hope Sandara Bullock wins tonight. I'm not a fan of hers, nor do I dislike her but she seems like a nice woman and then there's this...she won a Razzie today for Worst Actress and actually showed up to accept it.

Showing good humor, Bullock accused members of voting for her just because she promised to attend.

"I said I would show up and then I miraculously won!" she said, adding that her victory is further proof in Hollywood that "all you have to do is show up and you get an award."

"I brought the shooting script," she added. "I'm willing to go through page by page, read the line the way I did it in the film and, if anyone wants to give me a line read of how I could've done it better…. We can do this till about 4 o'clock in the morning. Or you guys can just watch the movie and rethink your decision, and I'll show up next year and we can go out for a drink afterward." The audience cheered and applauded.

Bullock also took issue with her second Razzie win, which she shared with "All About Steve" costar Bradley Cooper as worst screen couple.

"Again, if you had seen the film, seen it with your eyes, it's pretty much a film about a woman stalking a man," she said. "That doesn't really set up the premise for a loving couple. So giving us the worst couple award is kind of duh."

In a world and profession where people take themselves way too seriously, anyone who can have fun while being called the worst is ok with me.

Video Update [Gabe]: Video of Bullock accepting her Razzie is below the fold. She's pretty cool about it.
