Sandra Bullock's Oscar Must-Haves? Liposuction & an English Accent!

First-time Oscar nominee Sandra Bullock has plenty to do before the big night. The Blind Side star -- who says she was asleep when her nomination for Best Actress was announced Tuesday morning -- told the Today show's Matt Lauer how she plans to prep for her walk down the red carpet March 7.

"I do believe some liposuction is in order, a very strict diet regime, and I will acquire a very light English accent," the 45-year-old joked. "I was going to say that I should start wearing glasses, but I already wear glasses, so I am already sort of there."

Bullock says she's having a hard time absorbing the thought that she could possibly walk away with an Oscar.

"I think it's just so big that maybe when I am about 74, I'll have that moment in a grocery store with my walker and go, 'Oh, my God! This year has been mind-blowingly amazing!'" she said.

She reiterated her shock in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter: "I'd always assumed that the road to Oscar was planned. I thought people chose projects that were considered 'Oscar-worthy.' No one wanted to make this film. I didn't want to make this film for the better part of the year. Everyone is as blindsided -- can I say that? -- as I am."
