Sandra Bullock Jokes: My Son Has 'Damage' From Watching Me Film Gravity

Sandra Bullock: Gravity Director Used Son Louis to Get Me Through a Tough Shoot

Originally posted 01/26/2014 10:55AM

Sandra Bullock praised the imagination, kindness and inspiration of her Gravity director, Alfonso Cuarón, at the 66th Annual Directors Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday.

She also teased the heck out of him.

Bullock, 49, joked that her son Louis, 3½, may need therapy for years to come after watching his mom rigged up on set with equipment that made it look like she was adrift in space.

As she spent hours in her astronaut's suit, locked down in a 9-by-9-ft. light box with only an earpiece to hear, Bullock said Cuarón would offer her a little break and comfort after shooting intense scenes by showing her son's face.

Oscar, who?

Ben Affleck took home the top prize Saturday night at the 65th Annual Directors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, where he once again reigned supreme following a snub from the Academy Awards.

It was a celebratory evening for Affleck – and it was also date night with his doting wife, Jennifer Garner, by his side (and often with her hand on his back).

Sandra Bullock Picks Up Her 2 Razzies in Person

Sandra Bullock took the Golden Globe, the Screen Actors Guild award, the Critics' Choice Movie Award and is the odds-on favorite to win as Best Actress at Sunday night's 2010 Oscars – but those are for her true-life role in the drama The Blind Side.

For her multi-dimensional part of a newspaper crossword puzzle writer in the 2009 comedy All About Steve, Bullock has now claimed the fun award: the 2010 Golden Raspberry, or Razzie. And she personally showed up to Hollywood's Barnsdall Gallery Theater on Saturday night to pick it up – along with the Razzie that she and Bradley Cooper "won" for worst screen couple.

"I thought no one went to see this film, but I know that there are more than 700 members here," said Bullock, who made her entrance pulling a wagon filled with All About Steve DVDs to give the crowd.

Gabourey Sidibe: From $2 a Day to Independent Spirit Awards Win

Who knew how far $2 could go? Gabourey Sidibe's mom, who used to pay her daughter that amount each day to attend school, does now.

"I saved up my money for a week so I could see Welcome to the Dollhouse," Sidibe, the Independent Spirit Awards' best female lead winner, said in her beaming acceptance speech Friday night. She excitedly explained that it was the first film that made her think: "I could do that." A notion that gave birth to her own independent spirit and an Oscar-nominated performance in her first film, Precious.

Her costar Mo'Nique credited their "low-budget, independent film's" leaders for teaching her how to bring her A-game and score yet another trophy this awards season for best supporting female.

But it wasn't all about the best feature film of the year, Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire. Crazy Heart star Jeff Bridges continued his winning streak for best male lead, exclaiming to his wife that his Spirit award trophy would "really tie the room together!" He explained to PEOPLE after that it was his "little nod to The Dude."

It was a night to remember for Twi-hards and royal fans at the Orange British Academy Awards in London, as Prince William was announced BAFTA's new President and Kristen Stewart won the "Orange Rising Star" award with Robert Pattinson in the audience.

While Twilight's hot couple arrived separately on the red carpet, both to loud cheers, it was Prince William signing autographs that caused the biggest frenzy on the way in to the star-studded ceremony at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

The young royal attended solo – minus girlfriend Kate Middleton – opened the ceremony with a heartfelt speech on his new BAFTA appointment. "This is such a privilege for me," he said adding, "I have to say, there is nothing better than going to see a really good film so this is a great personal thrill for me."

Prince William follows in the footsteps of his grandfather in accepting the high-profile arts role.
