It was a night of firsts at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards for Sandra Bullock: Her first red carpet since her drama-filled 2010, and her first time away from little boy Louis, who turns one this month.

"I miss him," Bullock, 46, told The Today Show's Al Roker. "This is my first time away. I'm having trouble."

But Bullock (who won a Golden Globe and an Oscar last year for her turn in The Blind Side) explained how she kept tabs on her little boy.

"The beauty with modern technology is that you have Skype and iChat and things like that. Every five minutes my phone goes off with pictures, documentation," the star explained.

"He's got the iPad and the iPhone and the computer with iChat," Bullock added jokingly.

She joshed that Louis' nursery is tricked out with gadgets. "I bought him a desk, a mid-century desk and he has the set-up. He's amazing."

Roker sent his love to Louis. "Lots of loving," she added sweetly. "That's easy to do."
