In the main acting categories, Sandra Bullock was name Best Actress for the Blind Side. She took to the podium to tearfully thank her mother, who died in 2000, for ‘reminding her daughters that there’s no race, no religion, no class system, no color, nothing, no sexual orientation that makes us better than anyone else. We are all deserving of love.’
