Bullock claims worst actress prize at Razzies

Sandra Bullock warmed up for the Academy Awards with a stop at the Razzies to collect a dubious honor: a worst-actress prize for her romantic comedy flop "All About Steve."

Bullock swung by the Razzies at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood on the eve of her triumph at last night's Oscars, where she went on to win best actress for "The Blind Side," The Associated Press reports. Bullock is the first person to win an Oscar and a Razzie over the same weekend.

"I think this is an extraordinary award," said Bullock, who had promised throughout awards season that if she won the Razzie, she would accept it in person. "And I didn't realize that, in Hollywood, all you had to do was say you'd show up, and then you'd get the award. If I'd known that, I would have said I was appearing at the Oscars a long time ago."

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" was picked as last year's worst picture and won two other Razzies, worst director for Michael Bay and worst screenplay for Ehren Kruger, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

As Bullock took the stage, she pulled a little red wagon filled with DVDs of "All About Steve," saying she was giving a copy to everyone in the audience of about 300.

Bullock implied that many Razzie voters had not actually seen the movie but cast ballots for her hoping to get her to show up at the awards. She said if they watched the DVD - "I mean really watch it" - and decided it was not the worst performance of the year after all, then she would come back next year and "give back the Razzie. . . . then we'll go drink afterwards."

The worst-actor Razzie went to siblings Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas for "Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience." Billy Ray Cyrus was named worst supporting actor for "Hannah Montana: The Movie." Sienna Miller received the worst supporting-actress Razzie for "G.I. Joe."
