It must suck to be Sandra Bullock right about now. After a sweep of every possible and imaginable award for her “Blind Side” role, she goes and gets blind sided by her Mandingo rumored husband Jesse James with some tattoo freak named Michell McGee. Bet she didn’t see that coming…
And now word via TMZ is that her dog is missing – again!
You know shit is bad when your dog goes and runs off from a seeming life of luxury. (He’s since been found, but still!)
Should this be a testament to the phrase “all that glitters…”
How do you go and recover from having your “love” go and cheat on you with some walking freak like this one? That’s has to go and take some wind out of a sail.
Hang in there Sandy. And dumps his ass, right quick! Oh wait, she did already – it seems. Word from the rags is she moved out of her p/t mansion.
Don’t look back, I say. Unless you are ready to make that shit a regular Mo’Nique open relationship thing. Rest assured there are other big dicks in the world.
And its a wrap! Sandra Bullock – seen here at the People’s Choice Awards – wrapped up the awards season with a naked golden statue at this years’ Oscar Awards in LA for her “Blind Side” performance. No great surprise really – she was the favorite to win.
I don’t doubt she deserved this and the many accolades she has been bestowed – this role is by far her greatest in a long comedic history.
I do however question other things.
In her acceptance speech – which was sprinkled with humor – I noticed, as she walked off after an emotional moment addressing the audience, her springing back to normalcy. Is this possible for someone on the verge of tears? Was this acting or was her emotion acting? She is an actress after all…
During Mo’Nique’s speech upon winning for Best Supporting Actress, she opened with thanking the Academy for acknowledging the performance and not the politics. Some strong words to make to a room full of people deep shit in the stench of politics. But she hit the nose with a dart on that one…
But was the opposite the case in Bullock’s win? Was it simply that so much pan-handling was made for her that it had to be no one else? Certainly Gabourey Sidibe’s “Precious” performance was beyond a tear jerker.
I remain a fan of Bullock’s and admit I rooted for her and was glad to see her win, but I am not clueless of how the system works. If I spend too much time thinking about who she was up against I start to question the motivation behind the win afforded by the Academy… Just saying…
Its that time of the year again. Can you believe it’s February, 2010 already? Time waits on no-one. But with Botox on my horizon and the promise of Spring around the bend, I trudge forward (from the warmness of my apt.!)
And while I’m at it, here is a list of the relevant nominations for this years OSCAR’s, taking place on March 7th. My picks are noted in RED. And the Academy should please note how easily this long ass boring show could be edited down to what the public considers important! Let’s face it, there are some catergories that we just simply don’t care about! And since we are bitching – isn’t it bizarre how Almodovar isn’t nominated in the Best Foreign Film category or Tom Ford for Best Director??? These omissions are simply R-U-D-E!

Given that there hasn’t been anything going on in NYC that necessitates my leaving the comfort of my home, I have been occupying myself with a much-needed return to the basics of a workout routine. It is kicking my ass!
What I do have is a much deserved congratulatory note to send to Robert Downey Jr. on his Golden Globes’ “Sherlock Holmes” win! He was certainly a good ending to an otherwise somewhat lackluster show. And he is right he don’t hardly have anyone to have to thank cuz – well, its Robert Downey Jr.! He is brilliance.
Another much well deserved kudos goes to Mo’Nique for her win for her performance as that mess of a mom she plays in “Precious!” Amazing performance. Blows you away.
And a last kudos goes to Sandra Bullock for her role in “The Blind Side!” I love me a tear jerker flick and she delivered with sass!
On a flip side, I firmly believe that “Glee’s” Jane Lynch was R-O-B-B-E-D! That award should have been yours girl. ROBBED I say.
On a last note, my buddy Augustus begged that I make mention of a tidbit on Ryan Seacrest and his encounter with Vera Farmiga, who commented on her husband catching him in the steamroom at The Four Season’s hotel. Seacrest’s discomfort with the mention apparently translated into a very uncomfortable moment for him as he attempted to redirect the chat onto Clooney. Geee… I wonder why…?
Sandra Bullock is one of my faves. She doesn’t appear to take herself to too seriously and generally speaks candidly. No small feat when you consider she is in the thick of Hollywood’s “A-List” billers.
Yet she manages to shoot from the hip with just enough of a sense of humor to lighten and deflect from the seriousness of the topic while attacking it head on. Something I’d argue someone should award her for being able to do cuz it ain’t that common.
On the tail end of her People’s Choice Awards’ win, and with two Golden Globe nominations pending, comes her Tavis Smiley talk show appearance, on PBS, where Bullock addresses race issues relating to her amazing film “The Blind Side.”
I especially love her break down response to Smiley’s why do we need “another movie bout white folk saving the negroes” question.
“It wasn’t white lady going after the black kid; it was a mom looking at a child who was cold, walking home that night,” Bullock clarifies as the character she plays having pointed out.
Damn if covering a big ass event like The People’s Choice Awards, held at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles, doesn’t take a lot out of a homo! And endless assembly line of who is this, that and another “star!”
The night wasn’t with my own contribution to the level of drama – starting with my GPS not wanting to turn on. As you can imagine this caused all types of delays in getting to the venue and I arrived to an already underway carpet. Oh well…
In the end, it was for the best as a bunch of the listed attendees skipped the red carpet and opted for the press room. Case and point: Ryan Reynolds, here with “The Blind Side’s” Sandra Bullock. I either arrived to have missed hotness on the carpet or he didn’t care for a stop-and-repeat.
Other no shows on the carpet? Mariah Carey – who’s big ass bodybuilder bodyguard got into a tete-a-tete with the venues security and was non too pleased to be told he couldn’t accompany the diva on the carpet so they blew the arrivals line off. Taylor Lautner who not only skipped the carpet but also skipped the press room and left the show before his report ex, Taylor Swift, took to the stage. The official word in the press room came with a “Lautner has left the building!” He was fully clothed so no great loss…
Still in the throws of editing I will say ciao for now! Stay tuned.
I try to rid myself of this, but I simply can’t.
Let’s face it… no other woman can deliver the pretty and down to earth girl next-door performance with just the right dose of enough comedy thrown in to sell it – wrapped in a bow!
Work it out, Ms. Bullock!
