Sandra Bullock presented the Academy Award for Foreign Language Film in 2012 and used it to show off her comedic and linguistic skills.
“The Academy is trying something new year … Because there are over in 1.2 bn people in China , they have asked me to briefly speak about this category in Mandarin Chinese. One quick note, as my mother spoke German to us as we were growing up, my Chinese has a very slight German accent.”
Then the actress spoke German: “Egal in welcher Sprache sie sind, sind Filme ein gemeinsames Erlebnis, das uns alle verbindet. Sie sprechen über die gemeinsame Humanität, die uns alle verbindet.”
