Sandra Bullock loved Oscar vibe

sandra_bullock_oscarsSandra Bullock says there was a “wonderful vibe” at the Academy Awards. The actress won Best Actress for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side. She has been tipped to take home the prestigious prize, but had refused to comment on the speculation. Sandra has now revealed she expected to be nervous when entering Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre on Sunday, but actually felt at home. “When you get in the room you are surrounded by your colleagues, peers and people you have worked with and alongside for 15 years so that helps you be calm and just enjoy the process,” she explained. “It is a different and wonderful vibe and one that’s actually really enjoyable.” The 45-year-old was up against Dame Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan, Gabourey Sibide and Meryl Streep, and despite a much-publicized jokey rivalry with Meryl, Sandra insists it didn’t feel like a contest. She claims all the women supported each other, although she is still in a state of shock about her win. “In competitions – which I don’t like very much – there is a tendency for everyone on the outside to pit everyone against each other because it makes it more spicy, and actually when you get in there everyone is just happy to be with everybody else. We don’t want a battle,” she explained. “More than anything I think they’re all just bored of me turning up so they’re hoping now I have the award I won’t be back! But I like it here. It’s a fun night out. And I don’t get out much!”

    Now that she won, will she go away like so many others from the past who have won best female before like jennifer “got lucky” hudson. Sandra Bullock better learn from depp and downey Jr because these guys at one point were fading fast and now are on top especially Johnny Depp.

    I agree, underzenith and Lisa. I also liked Sandra’s hair this time and her dress as well. Also really liked J-Lo’s dress too.
