Sandra dazzles at pre-Oscar Razzies

David Germain

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

Bullock swung by the Razzies on the eve of the Oscars, where she was considered the favourite to win best actress for 'The Blind Side'.

"I think this is an extraordinary award," said Bullock, who had promised 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. If I'd known that, I would have said I was appearing at the Oscars a long time ago."

And as all of Hollywood geared up for its biggest annual celebration and star-studded affairs like the Weinstein Company pre-Oscar party kicked off in West Hollywood, Bullock took to the stage at the Razzies pulling a little red wagon filled with DVDs of 'All About Steve', saying she was giving a copy to everyone in the audience.

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.

Bullock said if they watched the DVD 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".

'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' was picked as last year's worst picture and won worst director for Michael Bay.

Bullock was the first acting winner to show up at the Razzies since Halle Berry won worst actress for 'Catwoman' in 2005.

The worst-actor Razzie went to siblings Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas for 'Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience'.
