Sandra Bullock has thanked Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone for teaching her everything she knows.
The 49-year-old actress also mentioned Jean-Claude Van Damme as one of her mentors, before swearing on stage as she picked up her Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actress in an Action Movie for Gravity in Santa Monica, California, last night.
Aside from the joking, Sandra also thanked the space movie’s director Alfonso Cuarón, before making fun of her co-star, and close friend, George Clooney.
“I’d like to thank Jackie Chan, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme for teaching me everything I know. What the f**k?! I’m an action star,” Sandra joked to the crowd.
“And George Clooney for floating away and never coming back.”
The joke was reminiscent of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Golden Globes gag on Sunday, where they giggled that Gravity was “a story about how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age”.
Bradley Cooper, who went onstage to accept the Best Comedy gong for American Hustle, also cursed.
He referred to his colleagues as “these f**king actors” as he picked up the award.
Cate Blanchett took a more humble approach when she was awarded the Best Actress prize.
Cate’s winning role was in the Woody Allen-directed movie Blue Jasmine and the 44-year-old Australian actress thanked the legendary director for giving her the chance to star in one of his films.
“[Thank you for] everything he’s done. Not only for cinema but for the roles he’s created for women. I’m just the lucky girl he happened to call for this,” she gushed to the audience.
“And you should be grateful that it is I, not Jasmine French [her character], that is your mother,” she joked to her family.
Other big winners included 12 Years a Slave which was named Best Picture and Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto who took away Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for their roles in Dallas Buyers Club.
Lupita Nyong’o scooped the coveted award for Best Supporting Actress for her part in 12 Years a Slave, while Alfonso Cuarón went home with the Best Director for his space thriller Gravity.
