Stars poured into the Gibson Amphitheatre Sunday night for the MTV Movie Awards. And not surprisingly, "Twilight: Eclipse" dominated the fan-voted award show. But the evening's most talked about moment involved the return of Oscar winner Sandra Bullock. Sandra Bullock received a rousing and warm reception at her planned appearance at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards to accept its Generation Award.

On Saturday, Bullock made a surprise appearance at Spike TV's "Guys Choice" event. She received a standing ovation when she accepted the "Troops Choice" Award for Entertainer of The Year, from presenter Robert Downey, Jr. The award was voted on by members of the military.

"So I would like to do something I've always wanted to do in person which is to thank you. To thank all the men and women that make it possible for me to wake up in the morning free, able to speak freely, to think freely, to make choices freely and to go to sleep safely," said Bullock.

The 45-year-old actress continued her weekend in the spotlight by making her first live appearance since her split with husband Jesse James. She used the opportunity to dispel a few rumors.

"No matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do," vowed Bullock, "and I'm not going anywhere."

Bullock was presented with the show's highest honor by her "All About Steve" co-star Bradley Cooper, "The Proposal" co-star Betty White and Scarlett Johansson, the wife of her absentee "Proposal" leading man Ryan Reynolds. When asked why she was there to help hand over the trophy, Johansson hinted she wanted to lay one on Bullock, who awkwardly obliged.

"Now that we have done that," said a smiling Bullock, "can we please go back to normal?"
