Sandra Bullock: Oscar Nod “Scares Me”

 Steve Granitz/

How does Sandra Bullock feel about her best actress Oscar nod?

"I think it scares me more than anything because you think, 'What do I do now?'" The Blind Side actress, 45, admitted to reporters at Monday's Oscar nominee luncheon in Beverly Hills.

Continued Bullock, "And I think I was in that place before this [nomination] came several years ago, 'What do I do now where I don't step backwards, where I step forwards?' I've been thinking a lot about that, what do I do next? I don't know what could possibly compare to this moment or this energy."

So Bullock has decided "not to look at work until this is all over so I can make a real judgment."

One thing she needs to judge quickly: what to wear to the March 7 awards show.

"I am so behind," she joked, adding that she tried on her first potential dress Monday morning.

"I'm oddly relaxed about it, because it's someone else's job to finally stitch thousands of pleats and jewels into a gorgeous thing to make you look divine," she said. "Look, if I have to wear a trash bag, I'll belt it with rhinestones and I'll make it work."

Added Bullock, "I'm not panicking because there are so many beautiful things out there. Someone will not want to wear something and I'll get it. Or the exquisite something I saw that's just a work of art."
