This year’s MTV Generation Award honoree, Sandra Bullock , is an Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning actress, whose big-screen features have raked in nearly $700 million in worldwide box-office sales. She’s a philanthropist and loved by her co-stars. In short, her admirable traits and career accomplishments are just too numerous to list.
So it’s not surprising that Bullock’s fans come from near and far — the Jersey Shore being no exception. When we caught up with some of the “Jersey Shore” stars, they revealed they were huge admirers of “The Proposal” star. And the castmembers declared no one was more deserving than Bullock, who’ll be honored at this Sunday’s 2010 MTV Movie Awards.
“Sandra Bullock is probably one of my favorite actresses,” JWoww told MTV News. “I think she’s an amazing person. My favorite movie is ’Miss Congeniality'; I watch it every day. She has an amazing aura about herself and presence.”
Vinny has nothing but love for Bullock as well, although he name-checked a more recent film of hers. “Sandra definitely deserves it,” he said of the Generation Award. “She’s a great actress, everyone knows that. And ’The Blind Side’ was amazing. If you look back at all her movies, she’s funny yet serious.”
Bullock will be on hand to accept her award when the show airs live Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT. She joins an impressive list of previous recipients that includes Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey. Bullock’s movies “The Blind Side” and “The Proposal” are also up for awards.
