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."

Someone Tell Farrah Abraham That Jessica Alba Doesn’t Look A Thing Like Her

Jul 22 2014 10:38am CDT | Source: The Superficial

Farrah Abraham Launches Her Sex Toy Line
I talk a lot of shit about Jessica Alba, but that’s only because she won’t get naked, so it’s actually kind of cute when you think about it. Seductive, even. But at the end of the day, she is a Hollywood actress who gets cast in (quasi-)non-pornographic movies that actually get made and are shown in a movie theater. Which makes it all the more ridiculous that Farrah Abraham would float her name in connection to a theor ...

Farrah Abraham Wants Jessica Alba to Play Her in the Movies

Farrah Abraham Launches Her Sex Toy Line
When US Weekly gets an exclusive with Backdoor Teen Mom, you know it’s going to be fucking riveting journalism. Farrah Abraham agreed to do a no-holds-barred interview with US in exchange for US pretending that people are actually buying her creepy erotic novels and that there is interest from Hollywood in turning them into a movie series. Like the Hunger Games, except where Katniss gets scourged in the ass by President Snow for the first 45-minutes. Farrah claims that she’s constantly be ...

Farrah Abraham Launches Her Sex Toy Line
Oh man, guys. Honestly, Farrah Abraham's been doing a whole lot of interviews lately, and if "scattered" is a polite word for what she is, then let's stick with that, because it can get really, really dark -- really really fast -- when it comes to this girl, for real. In her latest, she talks about her book, "Celebrity Sex Tape," which I actually read, and truth be told it wasn't bad. For, you know, bargain basement erotic fiction that ...
