Sandra Bullock Is Back!
America’s Sweetheart will make her first public appearance at the MTV Movie Awards.
Thata girl, Sandy! It’s about time we saw your beautiful face again, and we’re happy you’re coming out of hiding. People has confirmed that Sandra will be attending the MTV Movie Awards on June 6, as she’s already been named one of the big winners of the night.
Sandra will be presented with the MTV Generation Award, marking the first time a female has won the award. MTV says they are giving Sandra their “highest honor,” because “She’s played sweethearts and badasses, damaged and righteous women, goofy gals and damsels in distress… She can pop off LOL-inducing one-liners in one movie and execute a sucker-punch to your soul in another.”
We can’t argue with MTV – Sandra is a multi-talented woman and has proven herself time and time again over her two-decade-long career. But we have to play devil’s advocate here and wonder: does MTV also have an ulterior motive for choosing Sandy, like ratings, perhaps?
The simple fact that we are reporting about this news means that viewers (including us) will now be tuning in to the show just to see Sandy – and it’s not because of her award. It’s simply because we want to see her live and in living color after her marriage fell apart. We want to see her smiling again and know that this experience hasn’t completely destroyed the actress we adore.
And MTV knows this all too well. If they had named Cameron Diaz the winner, do you think you’d be sitting anxiously at the edge of your couch, anxiously waiting to see her walk down the red carpet? Yeah, we didn’t think so. (People, MTV)
Tell us: do you think MTV had an an ulterior motive picking Sandra?
