Last year she won a Best Actress Oscar (for The Blind Side), but Sandra Bullock owned up to feeling better for this year's event – because she had a full night's sleep.

"We had a little man that no one knew about," Bullock told E! red-carpet host Ryan Seacrest of 2010's Academy Awards – later relating to ABC's Maria Menounos that nominee Javier Bardem has to be very tired with a newborn at home. And, while she didn't mention where – or if – baby Louis, now 1, was watching the Oscars, Bullock did have advice for those in the race Sunday night.

Relax and appreciate the experience, she stressed: "Just enjoy."

Asked if motherhood had affected her acting, Bullock replied, "I don't know if it's changed my approach to acting, but it's made me a better person. I'm more patient ... and accommodating."
