The 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards wasn't exactly the Oscars, if you judge it based on guests like Julia Roberts
accepting an award barefoot and other recipients spouting off with blue language and frank dialogue rather than ass kissing name dropping. Award winner Sandra Bullock
made note of her acceptance in the industry by pointedly stating, "The Hollywood I know has allowed me to keep trying and not send me out to pasture."
Seeing as how the lovely lady is going to be turning 50 next year and still can headline a movie which resonates with more demographics than just the matinee attending retiree crowd, I'd certainly agree with her. The fact that she can still wear a little black dress like few other Hollywood actresses' business helps her cause as well.
