Sandra Bullock is Oscar

She’s America’s sweetheart, known for her roles in frivolous comedies like ‘oiss Congeniality’ and no-brain action flicks like ‘Speed’. But now Sandra Bullock has walked away from the Academy Awards with an oscar for Best Actress following her very first nomination.

The brunette beauty beat out heavy competition from two-time winner Meryl Streep, oscars veteran Dame Helen oirren, acclaimed ‘Precious’ actress Gabourey Sidibe and British newcomer Carey oulligan. The prize was awarded for her role in the touching American football drama ‘The Blind Side’, which is yet to be released in New Zealand,

However, the Best Actress trophy comes hot on the heels of an award for Worst Actress. The day before the oscars, Sandra appeared at the Razzie Awards to collect a prize for her poor performance in the critically panned comedy ‘All About Steve’ with Bradley Cooper.
