Sandra Bullock, 'Transformers' are winners (of a sort) at Razzies
No matter what happens at the Academy Awards Sunday night, best actress nominee Sandra Bullock is a winner this weekend – although not necessarily in the way aspiring young actors might dream of.
Bullock, who drew raves for her performance in “The Blind Side,” was honored twice Saturday night for something else altogether at the 30th annual Razzie Awards, which good-naturedly tweak Hollywood every Oscar weekend for all the films it cranked out the previous year at the other end of the quality spectrum.
In Bullock’s case it was “All About Steve,” the comedy that cast her as a lovesick stalker and earned her honors as worst actress and worst screen couple (with Bradley Cooper).
It could have been worse for Bullock, though. “All About Steve,” which she helped produce, also was nominated as worst picture but that (dis)honor went instead to “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” which wound up as the night’s big winner (or loser, depending on your point of view), collecting Razzies for worst director (Michael Bay) and worst screenplay (Ehren Kruger, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman).
In ceremonies at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood, other awards went to siblings Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas, who collectively were named worst actor for “Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience”; Sienna Miller for her supporting role in “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”; Billy Ray Cyrus for his supporting role in “Hannah Montana: The Movie”; and “Land of the Lost” for worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel.
The Razzies are presented by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation based on ballots sent by founder John Wilson to 657 journalists, industry workers and fans.
