Expect the playful competition between Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep to heat up now that the two both nabbed Best Actress Oscar nods.

They've been facing off at nearly every awards show and even smooched when they tied for best actress at the Critics' Choice Awards last month.

"With Meryl, when this whole thing started, I left her a voice mail going, 'You've got to watch your back. I'm gonna cut you. I'm gonna take you down,'" Bullock tells the Associated Press. "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."

Kidding aside, Bullock, 45, said she has no ill will against the other nominees. (She is up against Julie & Julia's Streep; An Education's Carey Mulligan; The Last Station's Helen Mirren and Precious' Gabourey Sidibe.)

"You have to enjoy being with these women that you admire or love or like or have had friendships with or are just getting to know because you've got to take care of each other," Bullock told the AP.

"No one, at least the people that I've met, no one cares about the end result or the statue," she added. "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."

At what ages did Sandra Bullock and your favorite stars get engaged?

How did she feel about also being nominated as worst actress of the year for All About Steve from the Golden Raspberry Foundation, host of the annual Razzies.

She is honored.

"If I win, I am so showing up," she told USA Today. "I have to enjoy that as much as getting an Oscar nomination. It is the great balance in our business."
