Thanks SY.

I still remember you said that Sandy stands no chance whatsoever to be even nominated even if this was a weak year :p

Oh, I don't give a damn. The P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C Streepites can whine and whine and whine and it'll never change the fact that Sandy's the WINNER.

World Peace! :laugh:

On a personal level, I really like Sandra, and think she is genuinely a super nice person, but the award is for best actress -- not best liked or most popular -- or top box office draw of 2009.

You really get the feeling that Sandra herself is embarassed to have won, knowing herself she did not turn in the best performance of the year (or even close to it) -- so much for the integrity of the awards themselves.

Like Hunt, Paltrow and Berry before her, this will be Bullock's first and last appearance at the Oscars as a best actress nominee.

Now that Sandra has an oscar - all Miley cyrus has to do is dye her hair black and perfect a british accent - and voila "Best Actress 2011"

Superb speech and Whitaker was sooooooo cute when he called Sandra, Sandy.

And you can add "Razzie Winner" to her epitath as well.

Oh, let him have his moment.

Now, best you scram. The rest of the board probably won't be so nice about it from now on.

inky - I think Monique was referring to the internet hate campaign that some critics started when she snubbed them at their award shows.

Rumours started that she only attended the awards shows only if she got paid to do so.

This went on throughout the entire awards season and I think Mo'nique was peeved that she was told by her agents that she had to make more of an effort of "schmoozing" rather than let the performance do all the talking.

I'm just annoyed that Merryl will probably go down in the history books as the most nominated actor (male or female) with fewer Lead actress oscars than Hilary Swank or Sally Field!

Seriously - Sally and Hilary have a 100% success rate (2 wins out of 2 noms) whereas the brilliant Merryl is languishing on just 1 lead oscar out of 13 lead noms!)

Though not the strongest Streep performance, it is funny that some seem to dismiss Julie And Julia as "unchallenging" or lightweight. How many other actresses would have been brave enough to have tackled the role of Julia Child? On the other hand, I think of scores of actresses who could have played Sandy's role in The Blind Side. Compared to Julie and Julia, The Blind Side is a light and fluffy as cotton candy.

So what Mo'nique said only applied to herself.

I'm very glad Streep didn't win. I reject the idea that someone should win just because they have so many nominations. If that were the case, then Kevin O'Connell should win for Sound Mixing.

Now, it's criminal when someone with plenty of nominations loses for a great performance (Streep in Doubt last year), but when it's something as unchallenging as Julie & Julia, then I don't really see it as much of a loss. I would have preferred a Sidibe win, but I'm ok with Bullock.

I absolutely love Sandra Bullock and she was very good in Blind Side

BUT

Merryl was brilliant in Julie and Julia and she has lost 14 times straight - sometimes to less deserving performers.

This isn't as criminal as when Merryl lost out to the goddawful Paltrow - but very close.

As for her winning next year - well won't she be up against either Julianne Moore and/or Annette Benning for the lesbian drama The Kids are alright???

I am predicting she will be given a consolation "Governors Award" or "Lifetime Achievement Award" next year!

Sorry Academy - Bullocks win was a win for POPULARITY and not for the BEST PERFORMANCE!

Well, here's hoping Meryl wins for nomination 17 (The Ice At The Bottom Of The World) next year.
