Welcome to the First Full Day of the "Sandra Bullock Is a Best Actress Oscar Winner" Era

Posted by David Schmader on Mon, Mar 8, 2010 at 9:44 AM

And if you think you're weirded out by the fact in the subject line, imagine how such Oscar-free actresses as Julianne Moore, Glenn Close, Sigourney Weaver, Angela Basset, Laura Dern, Mia Farrow, Gena Rowlands, and a dozen more I can't think of right now feel.

Nevertheless, hurrah for Oscars' Ladies Night! (I guess it was nice for the Academy Awards orchestra to greet Kathryn Bigelow's Best Picture win with a blast of "I Am Woman," but what would they have played for Lee Daniels? "Young, Gifted, and Black"?) Beyond Bullock (boo!) and Bigelow (yay!), there were the amazing women of Precious: Best Actress nominee Gabourey Sibide (who, from her red-carpet opener—"If fashion is porn, this dress is the money shot!"—to her annunciation by Oprah, was clearly having more fun than anyone has ever had at the Oscars), and Best Supporting Actress winner Mo'Nique, whose lovely acceptance speech you can see below.

(Also of note: Mo'Nique's impressive interview with Barbara Walters, in which she discusses her dark but fully conquered past, her open marriage, and her forever hairy legs, which you can see here.)
