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

Sandra swung by the Razzies on the eve of her expected triumph at the Oscars, where she is considered the favourite to win best actress for The Blind Side.

If she wins both, the actress will be the first person to win an Oscar and a Razzie over the same weekend.

"I think this is an extraordinary award," said Sandra, who had promised throughout awards season that if she won the Razzie, she would accept it in person. "And I didn't realise that, in Hollywood, all you had to do was say you'd show up, and then you'd get the award."

Bullock, who also shared the Razzie for worst screen couple with All About Steve co-star Bradley Cooper, was the first acting winner to show up at the Razzies since Halle Berry won worst actress for Catwoman five years ago.

As she 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.

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.

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, while Sienna Miller received the worst supporting actress Razzie for the action tale GI Joe.
