LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sandra Bullock and Jeff Bridges have won the lead-acting honors at the Academy Awards.
Bullock won for her role as a wealthy woman who takes in a homeless future NFL star in “The Blind Side.” Bridges won best-actor for his turn as a boozy country singer trying to clean up his act in “Crazy Heart.”
The Oscar marks a career peak for Bridges, a beloved Hollywood veteran who had been nominated four times in the previous 38 years without winning.
Also an industry darling, Bullock won with her first nomination. The night before the Oscars, Bullock also won the year’s worst-actress prize at the Razzies for “All About Steve.”
Supporting-acting Oscars went to Mo’Nique for “Precious” and Christoph Waltz for “Inglourious Basterds.”
