Betty White, who supported Sandra Bullock in the hit comedy The Proposal; Bradley Cooper, who co-starred with Bullock in the widely panned comedy All About Steve, which earned Bullock a Razzie Award for the year’s worst performance by an actress; and Scarlett Johansson, the wife of Ryan Reynolds, Bullock’s The Proposal co-star, presented the MTV Generation Award to Bullock.
The actress had been keeping herself far away from the public arena since her widely publicized separation from husband Jesse James right after her Best Actress Oscar win for The Blind Side. True, Bullock did make a surprise appearance at a minor awards show the evening before the MTV Movie Awards, but Sunday was her "official" return to the spotlight.
Betty White, whose ovaries were recently named "historical monuments," praised Bullock for her performances in various films, including her "daring and race-bending portrayal of Stevie Wonder in The Blind Side."
Bullock’s laughter looked camera ready, but perhaps she was really enjoying herself.
My favorite homage came from Scarlett Johansson: A simple "No," in answer to Bradley Cooper’s question if she wanted to say something in Bullock’s honor.
