"Only in Hollywood can a PA become an actor in 15 minutes and then go and win an Academy Award," the best actress honoree says of Octavia Spencer.

“The Hollywood I know supported artists like Alfonso Cuaron to write a story that they couldn’t explain or couldn’t make sense to anyone,” Bullock said in a body-contouring black Dsquared2 dress and red lipstick. "I think Hollywood has gotten a bad reputation because he Hollywood I know is thousands upon thousands of people working tireless hours to achieve one goal, which is storytelling."

She also marveled of Octavia Spencer: “Only in Hollywood can a PA become an actor in 15 minutes and then go and win an Academy Award.”
