The day before she won the coveted Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in “The Blind Side,” Sandra Bullock also won another familiar award, a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress in “All About Steve.”
A Golden Raspberry Award is often referred to by the media as a Razzie.
Bullock was recently told by the Razzie Awards that there was a mistake in her getting the Razzie.
However, it doesn’t mean she will return her title as a Razzie winner.
The Razzie Awards still think “All About Steve” was terrible, but they realized they gave Bullock the wrong trophy.
Instead of receiving the traditional $4.79 replica of the original 30-year-old statue, somehow Bullock was accidentally given the a original trophy.
It took the Razzie Awards over a month and a half to recognize their prized possession was missing.
According to Eonline.com, Bullock said she will return the original trophy without a problem in return for her facsimile.
“We will be returning the Razzie to [its proper owners] shortly,” she told Eonline.com in an interview.
Bullock, along with fellow Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, made cinematic history with actually coming to the Razzie Awards and personally accepting their prospective wins with charm and charisma.
Berry won her Razzie for the critically-bombed 2005 film “Catwoman.”
During the ceremony, Bullock’s joke of the night came in her acceptance speech, when she said “All About Steve” really wasn’t that bad of a film, and that the voters must have made an uninformed decision.
“Something tells me you all didn’t watch the film,” she said in a mockingly serious tone. To make amends, Bullock brought with her to the award ceremony a cart full of hundreds of “All About Steve” DVDs to be given to the audience.
“This is the deal I’m going to make you,” Bullock said.
“Seeing how when I said I would show up, I miraculously won. I will show up next year if you promise to watch the movie – and I mean really watch it – and really consider if it was really and truly the worst performance. If you’re willing to watch it, then I will come back next year and give back the Razzie.”
But Bullock never let the concept of her winning a Razzie affect her.
Instead, she considers it helpful in not letting her Oscar go to her head.
“It’s the best equalizer,” she said during her Oscar acceptance speech. Both awards help her not “get too full of [herself].”
There is no word as to whether or not Razzie voters will actually accede to Bullock’s request with seriousness.
Currently, Bullock holds the rank of being the only actor or actress in history to have won both a Razzie and an Oscar the same weekend.
Why pass up such a prestigious position?
