Sandra Bullock and the Oscar-Razzie double double

Popular sentiment floating around the office, and likely other offices, on Tuesday was "How the [expletive of your choosing] did Sandra Bullock land a Best Actress Oscar nomination?"

Never mind that it was for "The Blind Side," a nice little movie with a happy message. The idea that Bullock, perceived by many moviegoers as an average actress with a history of "Demolition Man"-esque movies on her resume, could score the honor from both the hoity and the toity folks of the Motion Pictures Academy is pure lunacy.

Maybe so, but I kinda liked her as "Ro-ark" in "A Time to Kill."

But for those Sandy haters out there, take comfort. She was also nominated this year for a Razzie Award for Worst Actress for her work in the forgettable-and-I-didn't even-see-it flick "All About Steve."

That is the rarest of double doubles right there, my friends.

Here's hoping Bullock wins both awards, just because there's a chance she'll drop a Razzie bomb in her Oscar acceptance speech. That would make us laugh, you too?

She's actually the early leader in the clubhouse for the Best Actress award.
