Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock has been asked to return her worst actress Razzie Award after she was inadvertently given the “priceless” original.
The 45-year-old actress was given the dubious honour for her romantic comedy flop “All About Steve” a night before she won Best Actress Academy Award for her role as a suburban mother who takes in a homeless black teen and guides him to a football career in “The Blind Side.”
Generally, Razzie winners are given a cheap replica costing just 4.79 dollars of a raspberry on top of a film reel spray-painted golden, reports The Telegraph.
But Bullock was accidentally presented with the 30-year-old original award, which is worth thousands as a rare collectors item.
“We are ready to take the unprecedented step of asking a winner to return a Razzie,” said John Wilson, the awards co-founder.
“As Sandra was in such a rush after winning Worst Actress she ran off with the original handmade protype which has been present at ceremonies since the 1980s," he added.
Wilson said he had not yet asked Bullock personally for the award.a
