"Did I really earn this or did I just wear y'all down?" Bullock joked, accepting the lead actress prize for "The Blind Side." The night before, she won the award for worst actress for the little-seen "All About Steve." In one of the night's more memorable -- and coherent, bonus! -- speeches, she was ever gracious to her fellow nominees. "Gabby, I love you so much... Carey, your grace, beauty and talent make me sick... Helen, I feel like we're family." Of course, Meryl Streep got a special shout-out. "And Meryl, you know what I think of you -- and you're such a good kisser." Awards season observers might remember the two smooched when they tied at the Critics' Choice Awards.
