Sandra Bullock plans to celebrate winning the Best Actress Academy Award with a ''burger and a nap''

Sandra Bullock plans to celebrate her Oscar win with a burger.

The actress - who picked up the Best Actress accolade for her role in 'The Blind Side' at last night's (07.03.10) ceremony - admitted she was overwhelmed by winning her first-ever Academy Award and was longing to go home.

She joked: "I just want to eat! I just want to sit down and take my shoes off, and take my dress off, and eat a burger - and not worry that my dress is going to bust open.

"Sorry that's all I can give you, but I just want to eat! And take a nap."

The 45-year-old star - who picked up Worst Actress for her role in 'All About Steve' at the Golden Raspberry Awards the evening before - was watched by her tearful husband Jesse James when she picked up her Oscar.

Dismissing his emotions, she said afterwards: "It was because the dancers kicked up a lot of dust."

Sandra paid tribute to her fellow Best Actress nominees - Dame Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan, Gabourey Sidibe and Meryl Streep - in her acceptance speech, singling out 'Julie and Julia' star Meryl, calling her "my lover" in reference to their shared kiss at the People's Choice Awards.

She also jokingly thanked all the Hollywood stars who had been nasty to her in the past, including George Clooney, who she said had once thrown her in a swimming pool.

Despite making the audience at Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre laugh with her speech, she then became tearful as she thanked her late mother Helga D. Meyer.

She said: "Thank you for not letting me ride in cars with boys until I was 18. And for reminding her daughters that there's no race, no religion, no class system, no colour, nothing, no sexual orientation that makes us better than anyone else. We are all deserving of love."
