    Sandra Bullock. No surprise, but still. Drat.

     
    • Kate Harding 4:49 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      OK, her opening line was funny.

      • Kate Harding 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        And now she’s being classy and shit.

        • Elysia 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Some small consolation, I guess. Still disappointed.

        • stitchtowhere 4:51 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          yes on both counts. her opener was endearing and acknowledging the other actors is admirable.

      Aw but she shouts out to Gabby right off the bat plus all the others. That was classy.

    • moosemuse 4:50 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I think she knows she doesn’t deserve it. And for that alone I continue to love her (despite her shitty movie choices).

      • elfboots 4:52 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Oh, I like *her*, I just think she’s vastly outclassed in this category, that’s all.

    • thirtiesgirl 4:51 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I’m disappointed.

    • hsofia 4:51 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I haven’t seen this movie, so I have to ask if she was any good? And was the movie? The movie commercials just looked so hokey to me.

      • Kate Harding 4:52 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Put it this way: As Jill from Feministe just said on Twitter, “Sandra Bullock seems like a very nice lady. However. I am tired of White Lady Saves the Day, The Movie. “

        • hsofia 4:56 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          That’s what I thought, but I’d been so confused by all the love for it from people I thought ought to know better.

          • AmpleCurves 4:59 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            I saw it expecting it to be White Lady Saves the Day, but it was actually a lot better than I was expecting. And Sandra Bullock legit did a good job, which is not to say she deserves to beat out these other actresses, but still….

    • Paula 4:54 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I’m pissed off. Sandra Bullock is nice enough but what kinda stretch is it for an actress to play the rich white woman who saves the poor black kid?

    • riotsnotdiets 4:57 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I was disappointed, but that speech was just super classy and kinda made me cry… and I refuse to see this movie (white woman as savior is played the f out)… also, when she started saying “there is no color, no creed, no sexual orientation,” etc., I totally thought she was going to go all “colorblind” on us, but then she didn’t (finishing with “more deserving” or whatever it was that she said). So, that wasn’t as bad as I thought it was gonna be.

  • Kate Harding 4:44 am on March 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply  

    Is Gabby going to have to look under her seat to see if an Oscar is there?

      I am kind of weirded out by this testimonial thing before the actors get announced. Is this new or have they been doing this a while? It makes me feel uncomfortable. The actors seem to like it, but I just feel so nervous for the testifiers!
