Sandra Bullock: Oscars don't 'respect' comedy

Jun 14 2013, 5:30am CDT | by

Sandra Bullock has criticized the Oscars for not recognizing comedic performances.

'The Heat' star - who previously earned a Best Actress award for her role in drama 'The Blind Side' in 2010 - doesn't think the Academy Awards "respect" funny roles, even though she thinks comedy films are harder to make than dramas as actors in serious flicks receive "help" in post-production.

Quizzed whether the Oscars take comedy seriously, she said: "Absolutely not. There's no respect. Actually, they're harder to make, but when you land a comedic moment, or a joke, or something that makes the audience laugh, you know it right away. It's immediate gratification on set. When you do a drama, someone in the editing room helps you, the musicians help you - there's all these elements that help enhance your performance."

Despite her critically acclaimed role in 'The Blind Side', the actress admits she was itching to return to her comedy roots in the new slapstick film - which co-stars Melissa McCarthy - and defiantly insists she doesn't care about bad reviews or award recognition.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the UK gala screening of 'The Heat' at the Curzon Mayfair cinema in London on Thursday (13.06.13), she said: "There's no respect, but we also don't do it for the respect. You don't expect good reviews, you don't expect credibility. You do it for the joy. You don't do it for awards.

"If you don't nail a comedic performance, you know it right away. So there's a satisfaction that you get that you don't get with in dramatic roles. You do it because it makes you feel so good when it works."

Why didn’t Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie attend George Clooney’s wedding?

Sep 29 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I don’t really understand why everyone thought Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would fly to Venice for George Clooney’s wedding. I mean, the tabloids widely reported that Angelina and Brad would put in an appearance, but that always sounded like a guest-wish-list type of thing. I’ve always thought that people put too much stock into George and Brad’s friendship. They’re friends and colleagues, of cours ...
