Sandra Bullock Wins Best Actress Oscar!

Sandra Bullock Wins Best Actress Oscar!

Sandra Bullock wins an Oscar for Best Actress for her role in The Blind Side at the 2010 Oscars held at the Kodak Theater on Sunday (March 7) in Hollywood.

The 45-year-old Speed actress gave an emotional acceptance speech as she accepted her award. She also graciously spoke about the other four nominees: Carey Mulligan, Helen Mirren, Gabourey Sidibe and Meryl Streep.

“Did I really earn this or did I just wear you all down? I would like to thank the Academy for allowing me in the last month to have the most incredible ride with rooms full of artists that I see tonight and that I’ve worked with before and I hope to work with in the future, who inspire me and blaze trails for us. Four of them that I’ve fallen deeply in love with I share this night with and I share this award with.”

Gabby, I love you so much. You are exquisite. You are beyond words to me. Carey, your grace and your elegance and your beauty and your talent makes me sick. Helen, I feel like we are family through family and I don’t have the words to express just what I think of you. And Meryl, you know what I think of you and you are such a good kisser.

I have so many people to thank for my good fortune in this lifetime and this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, I know. To the family that allowed me to play them, the Tuohy family, I know they’re in here and you’ll probably hear her in a minute. Maybe not. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to… the family that made this film that gave me the opportunity to do something different. John Lee Hancock, Gil Netter, Alcon, Warner Bros., the actors, everyone who’s shown me kindness when it wasn’t fashionable, I thank you. To everyone who was mean to me when it wasn’t… George Clooney threw me in a pool years ago. I’m still holding a grudge. But there’s so many people to thank.

Not enough time, so I would like to thank what this film is about for me which are the moms that take care of the babies and the children no matter where they come from. Those moms and parents never get thanked. I, in particular, failed to thank one. 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. 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 this. And this. I thank you so much for this opportunity that I share with these extraordinary women and my lover Meryl Streep. Thank you.”

  • Ryan

    the blindside wasn’t an oscar movie, this was lame. i like you sandy but NO

  • Maria

    I love Sandra. I’m so happy she won and to say she’s an Oscar Winner! She deserved it. It’s uncharacteristic of her to take such a role. Her comedic prowlness and action pack movies like Speed is what she was known for and to take on a role in The Blindside was incredible. She can do it all. She’s one of those actresses along side, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep

  • Al

    YAY!!!!!!! so happy for her

  • Nicky Italy

    SHE DESERVED IT MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD!!! She’s beyond awsome!!! She’s talented, beautiful, funny, smart, sweet….I’M SO HAPPY!!! And her speech was so sweet :D

    Great movie, great actress!

  • mickey

    Sandy is the ultimate cool chick.

  • mickey

    @g!na:

    She didn’t forget to thank him. She was choked up because she was talking about her mother and how she got her to this point and to Jesse who she pointed at and said “you.” So, no she didn’t say his name but she definitely acknowledged him, the camera even showed him right after she pointed at him.

  • Roberta

    Sandra Bullock picking up her well deserved oscar was one of my favourite moments of the night, i loved her speech, it was really emotional. I love her and loved this movie. She was actually one of the reasons that this movie was so succesfull. Another great moment was seeing Kathryn Begalow winning for best derector. It took a long time for a woman being awarded that honor. Overwall it was a good show, a bit long, but kinda funny. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin joking with Meryl Streep was priceless.

  • Jenna

    I am so happy for her! :)

  • jessemosslover

    Such a beautiful and touching speech. Good for her.

  • life

    Congrats! She deserved it.

  • dlk

    @g!na:

    LOL….that was the first thing I said when she finished. I was like, OMG, she forgot to thank her husband and any other time, she just can’t stop talking about him. I cant believe that!!!

    But she did great. I loved her speech and you could tell she didn’t expect it. She is awesome.

  • gmoneyzz

    @g!na:

    no, she thanked Jesse. Well she didn’s say his name, but if you watch the footage, when she says “We are all deserving of love. So, to that trailblazer, who allowed me to have that. And this. And this…” she pointed to Jesse in the audience as she teared up. It was really sweet!
    it was an amazing speech!
    SO PROUD OF SANDY!

  • Venom

    Congratulations Sandra, you kick ass!!!

  • dlk

    @gmoneyzz: I watched it again, and didnt see it that way.

    She said, to this and this….but she didnt say Jesse. That was just kinda wrong :-)

  • zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    She definitely deserves it. When I first saw her in ‘The Net’, I knew she was going to be one of my three favorite actresses. She still is too. Haha. YES. Congrats to her !! All the acting she’s done in her movies are really well done. :D So happy she won !

  • Bella

    I thought this was the longest, worst Oscars ever, but it was all worth it when Sandy Bullock and Jeff Bridges won Best Actor awards. I loved both movies. They both seem so humble and funny and truly nice.

    Congratulations – you were well worth staying awake for!

  • yo sista

    About time she wins an Oscar! She deserves it!

  • tom

    Congratulations Sandra Bullock!

  • Maxi

    @Ryan: I agree. I like Sandra but she’s not the best actress and didn’t deserve this.

  • ck_always

    The Oscars weren’t the best ever, but the worst? No way! Last year was god awful! It was nothing but watching those filthy indian people parade around the room and listen to ‘Jai ho’ for 3 hours.

  • Ilia

    Why did she win again? So friggin’ lame…

  • John Ford

    She did not deserve it

  • http://seriouslytoo.com happy girl

    best dressed of the night.

  • Marieme

    God, she’s wonderfully humble and balanced. No wonder Hwood is in love with her. Smart woman, generous heart..talented actress. Sandy’s the whole package. So happy for her.

  • yo sista

    @ck_always: racist much? STFU!

  • drgd

    I love her dress. She had a great speech. Well deserved!

  • leah

    Great performance. Great film. Great dress. Great speech. Great woman all around. Well deserved. Congratulations, Sandra!

  • Pandit

    It’s kinda funny.Sandra was around about YEARS and no one really cared about her..Since SPEED she did some crap movies and it looked she would be just like that actresses whos everyone knows but no one cares about…Then she appears in CRASH movie and from 2006 to now it looks she was reaaaaally into it(REALLY acting and doing a great job).She deserves this and i hope she keeps on this type of work because she rocks doin drama stuff

  • betty

    She didn’t deserve it just like Julia Roberts didn’t deserve it.

  • bluerose

    Yay, congratulations!

  • nohemy

    the only speech given that actually made me tear up. well deserved.

  • SteveDenver

    So, she deserves this Oscar for this role WHY? The film was really an overly long Hallmark Card commercial. She did a fine job, but Oscar-worthy? Golden Globe worthy? Nope, she just happens to be really popular this year.

    For a role to be worthy of a Best Actor Oscar, it must be a singularly great performance: elevates the film, elevates the entire ensemble, represents something only that actor can bring to the role.

    This year’s award should have gone to Carey Mulligan or Gabby Sidibe. Stunning performances by both young actors.

  • Joy

    She gets that it’s not who you are or what you have but what you do with it that matters. Great movie and a great actress.

  • i love sandra

    didnt she donate a million dollars of her own money to haiti?

  • Catalina

    For those saying Sandra did not thank her husband, apparently you did not watch her entire acceptance speech.

    Go Sandra ! An honor well deserved.

  • janie

    Congratulations Sandra! Classy woman!

  • haj

    She’s just amazing. Lovely lovely speech. I’m so happy that she won, she totally deserved it.

  • Kathy

    I am so happy for Sandra. She really deserved this. She is a very talented actress and her performance in The Blindside was amazing. Congratulations Sandra! This is long overdue!
