Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep locked lips after they tied for Best Actress at the 15th Annual Criticâ€™s Choice awards in Los Angeles. Was the kiss staged? Hard to believe it wasnâ€™t these days where it seems everything is pre-written, but it did look spontaneous! Read more and see the video below.
Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep shared more than an award in what turned out to be a spotlight of the night at the first big movie awards show of 2010. On top of the surprise tie in the best actress category, the two added a kiss for the highlight reels.
Meryl was first announced as the awardâ€™s winner for her leading role in the 2009 blockbuster “Julie & Julia”. I have always been a big fan of her work, and she certainly deserved the award as she turned in another dazzling performance in J&J. After her speech, where she said:
â€śFirst, I want to thank my husband who’s golfing.â€ť
You have to love that dry humor. And continued on to say,
“I love acting and I love to work and I love food and I love sex – so did Julia Child, so it wasn’t that much of stretch.â€ť
She accepted the award, and then the announcer introduced the second winner, Sandra Bullock! Sandra made her way up to the stage, shouting â€śThis is bull****!â€ť (as a joke), but after shouting that across the mike, quickly changed moods, smiled, walked over to Streep and laid a quasi-awkward kiss on her, followed by an appropriate hug.
After the awards, Bullock said it was an honor to be considered in the same class as Meryl and that â€śMeryl’s a great kisser.â€ť
Bullock, winning the award for her star role in â€śThe Blind Sideâ€ť (also a fantastic movie), has been on a hot streak in 2009 starring in â€śThe Proposalâ€ť and â€śAll About Steveâ€ť among other films.
People has a breakdown of the other winners on the night.
