Miss Congeniality Bullock is still winning prizes in all categories

Sandra Bullock (below) has officially become the coolest girl in Hollywood, but it's not because she won an Oscar.

It's because she genuinely does not give a damn what people think of her. And that is a unique trait in a world where everyone is so obsessed with other peoples' lives that they forget to simply live their own and wish only good things for others.

Proof of what a good sport Bullock is was firmly on display the night before she collected the iconic golden statue for her role in The Blind Side. She attended the Razzie awards on Oscar-eve and accepted in person the gong for worst actress, thanks to her stint in All About Steve -- a long, long way from All About Eve which is regularly voted the best movie of all time.

Anyway, Sandra (45) rocked up with a big grin on her face, graciously accepted her dubious award and also brought hundreds of DVDs of the dud film to hand out, joking that she was going to force everybody there to watch the film again.

"Something tells me you all didn't watch the film because I wouldn't be here if you really watched it and understood what I was trying to say," she said. "Everyone gets a copy and I will show up next year if you promise to watch the movie and really consider if it was truly the worst performance."

Having made her name in the Keanu Reeves movie Speed Sandra bucked the Hollywood trend of living her life via tabloid papers and magazines. Equally she has been distinctly low key when it comes to her love life.

Bullock married motorcycle builder and Monster Garage host Jesse James in 2005. They met when Bullock arranged for her 10-year-old godson to meet the heavily tattooed James as a Christmas present.

In November 2009, Bullock and James entered into a custody battle with James' second ex-wife, former porn star Janine Lindemulder, with whom James had a child, and subsequently won full legal custody of James' five-year-old daughter.

She has not yet had any children of her own but in interviews has been far from the traditional image of a 'childless and unfulfilled woman'.

In short, Sandra dances to the beat of her own funky drum. RESPECT.
