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."

Amal Alamuddin visited George Clooney on the set of his Nespresso commercial

Considering the fact that George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have been together for about 10 or 11 months, it’s sort of weird to me that we have so few photos of them together. There are a few candid shots, here and there, mostly exclusives to one photo agency or to X17. There was the flat-out engagement photoshoot they did with People Magazine where we got to see Amal’s $650K ring. Usually, George ...
