Bullock 'overwhelmed' by Oscar

Best actress winner Sandra Bullock has said she will put her Oscar statuette on display next to her worst actress Razzie award.

Bullock, who took the best actress prize for The Blind Side, won a Golden Raspberry award a day earlier for the comedy All About Steve.

She had picked up the Razzie in person, and arrived with a trailer filled with DVDs of the film to give to the audience.

"They're going to sit side by side, as they should," Bullock told the BBC shortly after accepting her Oscar.

"We're in the entertainment business. That's what we're supposed to do - you take the good with the not so good."

'Great equaliser'

In The Blind Side, Bullock plays Leigh Anne Tuohy, a wealthy mum-of-two who picks up a homeless black teenager and raises him as part of her family. He goes on to become an American football star.

In All About Steve, Bullock plays Mary Horowitz, a socially awkward crossword compiler who turns stalker when she meets a local TV cameraman.

Bullock said she had "the best time" at the Razzie awards.

"It probably means more that both of them happened at the same time because it's the great equaliser," she said.

"Nothing ever lets me get too full of myself. It quickly chops me off at the knees, and I like it that way because it just keeps things stable.

"They'll sit side by side in a nice little shelf somewhere, the Razzie maybe on a different shelf... lower!"
