Bullock beat actresses like Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan, Gabourey Sidibe and Meryl Streep to win the coveted award. She praised her competitors for the Oscars in her acceptance speech.
"Gabby, I love you so much. You are exquisite. You are beyond words to me. Carey, your grace and your elegance and your beauty and your talent makes me sick. Helen, I feel like we are family through family and I don't have the words to express just what I think of you. And Meryl, you know what I think of you and you are such a good kisser," she said in her acceptance speech.
