Bullock gave a shout-out to her kids and said, “You are my first thought in the morning. You are my last thought at night. I was put on this Earth to protect you. You are my world. I love you so much, and I will move mountains to make sure that you are safe.”

Earlier this week, the biggest names in film and television united to celebrate the year in each realm at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Actress Sandra Bullock, who won the Best Frightened Performance for Netflix hit, Bird Box, gave an emotional speech and shared that the film was a tribute to her children, Louis, 9, and Laila, 7.

Bullock, who essays the character of a mother protecting her children from demonic monsters in Bird Box, said, “My children asked me to make something for them. So when Bird Box crossed my path, I knew this was a story I needed to make because it was about family. And when I finished the film, I went to my babies and said ‘here, mommy made this for you and even though you can’t see it until you’re 21, because apparently a movie about being a mommy is a horror film, you will know when you see it there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you’.”

Bullock gave a shout-out to her kids and said, “You are my first thought in the morning. You are my last thought at night. I was put on this Earth to protect you. You are my world. I love you so much, and I will move mountains to make sure that you are safe.”

She finished the acceptance speech by saying she’s glad that her son could be in a room with “real-life superheroes”, like Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot – who presented her (Sandra Bullock) with the MTV award – and Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson.

“I’m sure he will notice that they are women, just like his mama,” Bullock said.
