Awards season has just begun and Sandra Bullock, who's sure to be a red-carpet fixture thanks to a record-breaking year, is already looking forward to some downtime.
The star of The Blind Side had a winning night at the People's Choice Awards Wednesday, picking up trophies for favorite actress and for The Proposal, her movie with Ryan Reynolds which was named favorite comedy.
Despite the accolades, Bullock, 45, is ready for a break from moviemaking. "I don't want to open anything and read anything right now," she says. "I'm enjoying too many other things in my life. Once you get a project, it's a lot of time out of your life. I don't want to leave home right now."

The people have spoken – and they love Sandra Bullock!
The Blind Side star beat out stiff competition, including Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart, to be named favorite movie actress at the 36th Annual People's Choice Awards, televised live from L.A.'s Nokia Theatre Wednesday.
No stranger to the ceremony – this marks the star's fifth win for favorite movie actress since her first nomination in 1996 – Bullock, 45, was a double winner Wednesday night: Her film The Proposal, costarring Ryan Reynolds, was named favorite comedy.
"I am only up here because I am fortunate to work with people who make me look good," a tearful Bullock said while accepting her award. "[Thanks] most of all to my family . . . Life is hard sometimes, but we get through with laughter."
The actress also acknowledged her fans. "Thank you to everyone who voted," she said, "because you're voting for all the people who make me look good – and you're making me look very good."
