Sandra Bullock: A class act

It’s hard not to like Sandra Bullock, this year’s Oscar winner for best actress for “The Blind Side.”
She comes off as a down-to-earth, girl next door. She’s been in good movies and bad, but takes it in stride. She’s got a great attitude and sense of humor.
Her decision to show up at the Razzies on Saturday to accept an award for worst actress in “All About Steve” was brilliant. She took control of the event, handing out DVDs of the movie to attendees and asking them to reconsider.
“This is the deal we are going to make,” she said, according to EW. “You promise to watch the movie and really consider whether it was really and truly the worst performance. If you are willing to watch it, I will come back next year and give back the Razzie.”
The Razzies should take Bullock up on her offer and reconsider the decision to name Bullock as worst actress.
Let’s face it: the Razzies don’t have a lot of credibility anyway. Their main objective is to zing the biggest celebrities they can for bad Hollywood movies (some worse than others). They make up categories willy-nilly and seem to have it in for certain actors year after year.
Bullock’s competition for worst actress of 2009 included: Beyonce, “Obsessed”; Miley Cyrus, “Hannah Montana: The Movie”; Megan Fox, “Jennifer’s Body” and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”; and Sarah Jessica Parker, “ Did You Hear About the Morgans?”
Certainly any of those other women deserve the award more.
