Bullock & Streep trade insults in fight for awards

The pair had to share the Best Actress prize at last month’s (Jan10) Critics’ Choice Awards, after the committee couldn’t choose between them.

Following their Best Actress nominations at the upcoming Oscars, Bullock intends to increase the rivalry between the pair – with some good-natured insults.

She tells the Associated Press, “With Meryl, when this whole thing started, I left her a voicemail going, ‘You’ve got to watch your back. I’m gonna cut you. I’m gonna take you down.’

“And then she sent me dead orchids and told me to die, so I sent her a case of liquor and told her to toast to white trash.”

But the Speed actress insists the battle for honours actually pulls screen stars together: “No one, at least the people that I’ve met, no one cares about the end result or the statue. It’s being able to sit in close proximity with these ladies… and we have to go through this whole rigamarole and we just all look at each other and we get to know each other and you laugh at the absurdity of it all and how they pit women up against each other.”
