Smiling Sandra Bullock Reportedly Very Emotional Backstage At The MTV Movie Awards. Sandra Bullock may have appeared strong and perfectly fine at the MTV Movie Awards, but the Oscar winner harbored some deep sadness when the cameras weren’t rolling. The actress, who learned of her husband Jesse James’ infidelity when it became public, was reportedly very emotional backstage. According to Pop Eater, while Bullock was making jokes and kissing Scarlett Johansson on stage, she actually was under pressure to appear normal. Her pal told the website’s Rob Shuter, “This was such an important night for Sandy. She knew the eyes of the world would be looking at her, and she was determined to get through the evening without any tears, at least in public.” “What has happened to her is truly awful, but Sandra wants to move on. She refuses to play the victim and hates how everyone backstage was whispering whenever she walked by.” Bullock was usually met with smiles and hug from everyone she knew and worked with. However, it was a different story at the awards show on Sunday. A source continued, “Everyone was a little awkward, almost avoiding Sandra so they didn’t say anything wrong. This is what made Sandra so emotional backstage.”
Sandra Bullock Takes Jab At Personal Life During Surprise Guys Choice Awards Appearance. Even after her highly publicized marriage breakdown, Sandra Bullock managed to keep her humor intact and appear at the Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards in Los Angeles. She made a surprise appearance at the awards show and accepted the “Troops Choice” Award for Entertainer of the Year on Saturday. Looking stunning in an Elie Saab black leather mini dress, the the “Blind Side” star received a standing ovation from the audience as she accepted the honor. She said, “Let’s be honest here, just for a moment. We’re all going to be honest, right? Did I win this for being entertainer of the year, or did I win this because of the spectacular I.E.D. explosion that became my personal life.”"No, it’s okay,” she continued when the crowd laughed at her own jab at her personal life. “Because I would do it over again if it was to entertain our troops, and our extraordinary troops deserve something much more than some actress in a tight dress talking herself.” “I would sing, but you’ve seen enough pain in your lifetime. I would dance, I’m a pretty good dancer, but as I mentioned the dress is a little tight.” Only members of the military stationed throughout the world were allowed to vote in the category. Bullock’s appearance was a top secret. People.com said that even the show’s own staff and participants were not aware of her appearance. U.S. Army 1st Sergeant Nicholas McClain told the magazine of Bullock’s win, “Just because a lot of the movies that she does – they provide different venues for everybody to see us. And we know that she has a lot of great support for the troops.” “And she’s America’s Sweetheart, regardless of anything that’s been going on in her past.” Spike TV’s Guy Awards will air on June 20
Sandra Bullock to Follow Up Cheating Scandal With MTV Movie Awards Appearance. Robert Pattinson won’t be the only welcome pretty face when the MTV Movie Awards take place on June 6. Sandra Bullock will also be on hand for the event, in her first public appearance since the cheating scandal that ended her marriage to Jesse James became public in March. The 46-year-old Blind Side actress will be there to receive the MTV Generation Award, which acknowledges actors who have engaged the MTV audience throughout their careers. Bullock will be the first female performer to receive the honor, which in the past has been awarded to Tom Cruise, Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller, among others. We might be going out on a limb here, but we’re going to guess that Bullock won’t be quite as effusive in her thanks to James as she was at this year’s Oscars.
