Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson on MTV: the Perfect Kiss?

Hottie Sandra Bullock, famously betrayed by creepy husband, made her first nationally televised public appearance on Sunday night by planting a body-hugging kiss on Scarlett Johansson.
Bullock was receiving the MTV Generation Award to a standing ovation after she was introduced by the rake-of-the-moment, Bradley Cooper, and everyone's second-most-beloved star, Betty White, who is 88. In a girlie green dress, Scarlett Johansson stood awkwardly at their side.
Bullock asked, "This is so weird . . . Scarlett, I really love you and all, but this is just uncomfortable. Why are you here?"
Johansson, who is married to Bullock's "The Proposal" co-star Ryan Reynolds, told her she hoped to be there if Bullock and Reynolds won the best kiss award.
And – this was the flirty moment, the come on – Johansson muttered that she hoped she would get a kiss like the liplock Bullock gave Meryl Streep at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards in January.
It was just then when Bullock turned and took a few steps toward Johansson and Johansson moved in closer and you just knew what was coming next. Bullock reached out and held Johansson's face in her hands and slowly planted a kiss that just lasted a nanosecond, but what a nanosecond it was!
The audience swooned.
Last time we were treated to a surprise girl-on-girl liplock on such a world stage came at the 2003 Video Music Awards when Madonna, who was dancing with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, grabbed Britney and, in what was truly a shocker even to shock-proof sex-drugs-and-rock-n-roll veterans, kissed the younger star hard on the mouth, and, moments later, as an afterthought, planted a quickie on Christina.
Last week there was a flurry of gasps over Miley Cyrus's fake kiss with a female backup dancer during her performance on "Britain's Got Talent" on Thursday night. Miley, the star of the tween favorite "Hannah Montana," is just 17 years old and therefore deemed too young and innocent for such edgy lesbian action (though, of course, not so young if the object of her sexual attention were a boy). The fake kiss occurred during a performance of "Can't Be Tamed," in which Miley danced in a black corset and ripped fishnet stockings.
And there was Adam Lambert, the openly gay singer who was the runner-up at last year's "American Idol," who smooched a male musician on stage during a televised music awards show last summer, earning not only notoriety but the rebuff of many in the media.
Bullock's kiss was something else again. There was nothing fake or sleazy about it, and it is Sandra Bullock, America's Sweetheart, winner of the best actress Oscar this year, newly single! -- and Scarlett Johansson, legendary lips, honey voice, who is a lesbian muse.
Bullock looked great after months in semi-seclusion. There was not a trace on her face (thanks possibly to great makeup) of the personal ordeal she's been through since revelations that her husband, Jesse James, had cheated on her repeatedly with a series of low lives.
As sleek, buffed and sexy as she looked (she's 45) in a black sequined micromini, Bullock avoided the red carpet paparazzi and entered the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, in Los Angeles, through a back door, but once on stage she was in total command -- witty, funny, self-deprecating, adorable, "Miss Congeniality" come to life.
And the kiss?
Well, you can only dream.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

Sandra planting one on Scarlett? Was she so deeply emotional that her most latent desire took over completely? Could she be coming out?

I Love Sandra - - Love Her--Love Her--Love Her. I hope she never goes back to that sorry husband of hers. She is just too sweet.

Well, I loved Sandra, too, until she found it necessary to lapse into one of those "sleazy Hollywood moments." All gone now.
