Highlights From Sandra Bullock, Mo'Nique, and Kathryn Bigelow's Oscar Acceptance Speeches

Who Is Your Favorite Female 2010 Oscar Winner?

When Sandra Bullock accepted her Oscar last night for best actress, she quipped: "Did I really earn this, or did I just wear y'all down?" Sandra's been a household name for years, but her movies typically wow fans more than critics. Evidence? She won a Razzie for worst actress the night before her Oscar win!

Sandra B. wasn't the only woman to impress last night. Mo'Nique won for her moving role in Precious, and in her speech she noted how unlikely it is for a standup comedian to win an Academy Award. And let's not forget Kathryn Bigelow — she beat out her ex-husband James Cameron and his highest-grossing movie of all time to become the first woman to win best director. And of course, her film The Hurt Locker also picked up best picture.

Mo'nique, she is a standup comedian who won an Oscar. Simply awesome. Though a close second is Sandra, how can you not love her?! :)

Not that I think Bullock deserved it over Streep, but she is so likable.

She may not have won an Oscar, but Gabourey Sidibe won the night for me just with her beautiful glowing presence. And she SHOULD have won over Sandy Bullock (as much as I loved her award season antics) for Precious. Trust.
