For Bridges of Crazy Heart, Bullock of The Blind Side and for SAG supporting-acting honorees Mo’Nique of Precious and Christoph Waltz of Inglourious Basterds, there’s reason to suspect the Oscar ceremony will be a happy rerun of Saturday’s SAG Awards and last Sunday’s Golden Globes. All four were recognized at the Globes.
“Shhhhh. Shhhhh. Shhhhh,” Bullock said backstage when she was asked to speculate on her Oscar chances. She won for her portrayal of a tenacious real-life mom, Leigh Anne Tuohy, who helped a youth in need, future NFL player Michael Oher. “I would be a hostess or a waitress or a house restorer before I ever considered myself an actor, because I never thought I was good enough,” she added.
Betty White, 88, accepted a lifetime achievement award from Bullock for an enduring career that included The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls, and showed her sharp comedic chops. This was the highlight of the show. Watch the video clips of her speech after the jump.
When Bullock joked that she finds White annoying, White shot back, “Isn’t it heartening to see how far a girl as plain as she is can go.”
Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall of Showtime’s Dexter, wearing a cap because of treatment he’s receiving for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, won best actor in a drama series. The award for best actress in a drama went to Julianna Margulies of CBS’ The Good Wife. While Glee and Mad Men won for best ensemble for a comedy and drama respectively.
